    Well I`m looking foward to the contest, my first regional for a few years.
    James cook is a great piece for the band, lovely Vinter music.
    Maybe see a few people in the bar?.

    [quote=Oaker;582331]Anyone have any thoughts on winning bands?? here are my top two in each section-

    Champ- Polysteel, Camborne
    1st- Helston, St Dennis
    2nd- Camborne B, Pheonix Brass
    3rd- AW Parker, Hayle
    4th Bream, Swindon
    quote]

    Thanks for the vote of confidence - it will be very interesting being on stage with a different Musical Director.

    Our own Musical Director (Kevin White) is not available due to the impending birth (due on the contest day) of his and Jo's first child.

    We are thrilled that Roger Phelps has stepped into the breach - coming out of retirement. We know we are in very capable hands and hoping to perform well under his baton.

    We have a full band around the stand having registered a couple of players in the run up to the contest - mostly from our training band - and will take to the stage with a percussion section with an average age of only 12. Kathryn steps up to become principal percussionist at 14, while Matt (13) and Rebecca (11) make their contest debuts.

    Lets hope we can produce a performance worthy of the vote of confidence.

    Looking forward to the day out!! How is everyone getting on preparing?? we have had two fatalities within our ranks! One member ended up half way down a cliff after doing a charity skydive with me and the other one has broke his arm somehow!! they are both making a swift recovery though! Really enjoying the test piece, very tricky this year it takes a very quality band to pull this one off! Ball at his best.
