    Don't worry. This will no doubt kick off once the results are in

    Good Luck to everyone!

    To be honest, I don't think anyone outside the North East could care less about our area contest.... that's probably why its so quiet!

    I agree, but what about a bit of interest from within the North East?

    Hmmph, what about your friends at Barton, or don't you care about us any more? Flugella and I will not talk to you next time we see you!!

    Are you come to support us on Sunday? Would love to see you if you are

    Well, here we are again coming up to the Northern Area Regional Contest, I know I was never much good at Geography but the Northern Area seems to stretch from our friends up in Northumberland to way down to our friends in Lincolnshire..!!!..is there no area contest nearer for such bands....like may I respectfully suggest ...perhaps the Yorkshire Area... (ps...not for our friends up North)...?

    If you go back about 15 years the East yorks lot were in the yorkshire areas - they booted us out because they were too full and we have been travelling to Darlington ever since (And what a lovely bunch they are up in the North East too! )

    Don't put yourselves down.

    Have just been reading the 4BR articles about your region. I reckon you're in for a good weekend. You've certainly got some high profile M.D's in your top section - will be interesting to see the results.

    Some good test pieces this year so come on you north easteners - finish the regionals off on a high note.

    Good Luck everybody.

    Might just do that - not so sure about the cozzie.

    You must be in with a good chance - Bob Childs, they don't come much
    better than him.

    Oh thanks Colin . I wont bother to come and hear you then! To be honest, out of all of the friends I made in bands in the North East, most of them don't appear to be registered on here and those that are don't seem to post that regularly.

    To my disgust I've just noticed that the swimming pool is shut on Sunday - thanks very much Dolphin Centre. That's the only bit I look forward to, especially with this contest piece. I shall take to the stage in my speedos in protest.

    Lol.

    Still love it to bits though.

    Sorry lynda, nowt personal!!

    The point I was making was that anyone without an interest in the north east, would be interested.

    Hmm just reread that, talk about stating the obvious!!
