    1st section results a joke. How a band can get best percussion when the percussion have nothing to do except about 4 notes in the last movement and they missed the last note is beyond me. Next year have a piece that doesn't rely on the adjudicators interpretation to differentiate between first and last.

    A band can get best percussion because there is a best percussion prize? Therefore, someone has to win it. Maybe they played the 4 notes in the last movement better than anyone else?

    How are the results a joke?

    Yes Lets do away with the "CONTEST".All bands bring a piece of string.The band with the longest piece wins. Power to the impartial tape measure, and when we don,t win then we can all go home and complain about, metric or imperial units , who,s job it was to hold the tape, they seemed to be pulling the string,it rained and my string shrank, another band cut my string.

    Well said. We played our best yesterday under very difficult circumstances. We didn't get a place. We din't win any of the individual prizes but we're not complaining. Someone had to win that percussion prize. Although we would have liked it, well done to the 2 young gentlemen that did win it.

    Incidentally I would like to thank the committee and all of the other bands in the 1st section who were so understanding to us yesterday. For those who aren't aware We had just completed the section meeting and were walking out of the control room when I got a text through to say our only Bb bass player Stan had been taken ill in practice and could we borrow a player as an emergency. Although the meeting had finished and it was officially too late for such a request, they immediately pulled all reps back into the control room, put the request to them and it was unanimous that we could borrow.

    Luckily Stan did pull round and although not 100% managed to make it onto the stand and play so the player we had arranged to borrow from Barton wasn't needed, but we are extremely grateful to all who rallied round to help us compete.

    Ginge and I were at the Dolphin yesterday and I think you must have been hit by a Jerry bullet blue juice
    The results werent a joke and Barton directed by that 'Young' Dick Evans deserved their win plus the prizes, regardless of how many notes they played they won the percussion prize, also well done to that handsome lot from Ashington directed by that devilshly dashing Steve Malcolm, busy man of late,

    Which ones are the handsome ones? I obviously can't see them from where I sit!
    Choose band. Choose bars. Choose more bars. Choose visiting all those bars in one night and waking up next to a complete stranger. Choose TMP. Choose a name. Choose staying up all night talking to random people. Choose to increase your alcohol tolerance.

    Choose your future. Choose band life.
