    I want to cry... but the test piece preparation is going well as Huw posted earlier. We just need to make it all happen on the day...

    Looking forward to the contest, the beer, and meeting up with friends afterwards. Not staying in Torquay this year (coach there and back on Saturday) so won't be able to hear many bands :-(

    Hopefully see ya there and best of luck to all the Forest bands

    Thanks James!
    Have to confess tempers are fraying and stress levels rising as the big day approaches...You should have heard the ticking off we had monday from the MD (and it was real anger). It was recorded but sadly Sally stopped it near the start of it... You know how you play away thinking this sounds quite good and then you hear the recording and cringe? ouch!
    Still we will give it our all and no one can say we have not worked our socks off to get that promotion. I wish everyone else good fortune and hope we all play well!

    Cheltenham are producing a good quality sounds and are all looking forward to Saturday, and like Bream some are also looking forward to putting the piece away!!!!
    Hey, Matt!

    Has the pressure got to you and you backed out or is the listing of John Button as MD on 4bars rest a mistake?

    Can't get shot of me that easily, I guess 4BR had John from last year on their records; I'm on there now.

    As for the dark horse - no pressure!!!

    Looking forward to the day and am confident that the band are going to play well; one more rehearsal left!!

    The 4br predictions made intresting reading, don't know how they come there conclusions?, still best off luck to all of the bands taking part this weekend especially the forest bands.

    Matt - your dark past is well documented - remember the dress in Harrogate? A light green number if I remember rightly. Very you!

    As you are not sure what day it is or even how many rehersals there are left, I would suggest adrenaline has taken over- but don't worry I am sure there will be many 1000's on TMP's to witness your performance.

    No pressure then - best of luck from all at Drybrook.
