    Congratulations to all the qualifiers, but shouldn't Fairfield(Buxton) who were 3rd in The Midlands and Test Valley who were 3rd in the West be on this list?

    I'm looking forward to my first trip to Harrogate and to listening to all twenty(?) Bands. Seven of us will be renewing our rivalry from Butlins 2008 - so that's the first form guide. Are there any others?

    Woops, sorry. My mistake, now corrected. Thanks for pointing it out.

    I did wonder about this as only 16 bands played, but following the results, 4br printed that 3 bands qualify so I added them. Since then, they have also put them on their list of bands qualifying. Hmmness.

    The Kapitol website (http://nationalbrassbandchampionships.com) lists only the top 2 from L&SC as competing at Harrogate.

    They've announced the pieces!!! We've got a new piece called Alta Vista by Bruce Fraser, all about skyscrapers in America.

    Am looking forward to seeing the piece and playing (with Maltby MWB) on the day. Best of luck to Dronfield CMW. Even though they're a different area officially they're also local to me.

    Can't wait for this contest next week. I'm not too sure whether I like the piece or not though.

    It's a real killer on the lips for front row cornets isn't it?

    Any comments that I make are my own views and not necessarily those of the band that I play for.

    and the same to you and Maltby - interesting to note how many KSB players are playing for either Maltby or Dronfield - me thinks we ought to take up this contesting like. Oh we already have, 3 players at Maltby and 6 at Dronfield.

    Hi Chris - would be great to meet up for a pint - will look out for you. We are staying in the Majestic Hotel Friday and Sat night so plenty of time to catch up.

    Oh I see we are competing in the same section too.
