    Guesswork mainly!

    But often better not to get tipped in the top 6. So often the kiss of death.

    No pressure then - best of luck from all at Drybrook.
    Thanks Dave (I think)

    Good luck to all the bands in the West of England this weekend, it's going to be strange not being there this year (mutter mutter too many contests on the same day mutter mutter), I'm going to be in the slightly less glamourous location of Swansea.

    I thought Matt looked great in it - with his lip stick, eyeliner and hairy legs.

    More Emily Howard - ropey transvestite than a real lady.

    Shame we can't post photos on this forum. Although they can be made available for a small fee.

    Dam, Im sitting here shivering away with a stinker of a cold(i hate the shivers). Just what i need with 3 days to go! Looks like its getting worse too with my throat puffing up. oh well, will just have to go and struggle through. Lots of fruit for me.

    The band is playing well. And this year our soprano playing purcussionist is just playing sop.

    Good luck to all the bands. Hopefully I will make it.......

    Just found out that our hotel has been closed down due to the NOra virus, yes, it's hit Torquay!!

    Let's hope we can fend that off and that our new hotel in Babbacombe is ok!!

    To be fair 4br didn't too badly on their predictions in Yorkshire - hope fully they've got their fourth section predictions the wrong way around again for the West of England though

    Cheers GingerMaestro,
    We'll do our best to get there - hopefully Peter Roberts and Rob Wiffin will agree on my reading of it and the band will play well enough. Lots of unkowns this year though, two down from the third section and a new band again... it will be a very interesting day.

    What a dissapointment re the sop not playing percussion as well - it was so entertaining last year and he did brilliantly will try and ge to hear some of the 4th section but we are playing at the same time so might be tricky,good luck though!!!
