    tMP Finals prediction contest - current status

    Hey all -
    well hopefully those bands playing at Harrogate this weekend are having a good time, regardless of results.
    Well done to those who've figured!

    The results of your predictions after 3 sections can now be seen - ye don't seem to have been as accurate as ye were at the Areas really (shame on ye!)

    Well the 2nd section results later on may change things.

    Here are the results so far

    Do you HAVE to do the results in alphabetical order when there's a tie :o


    Partisan predictions rule OK.

    Well I'm doing well in 79th place with 4 points... lol.

    Dyl seems to be good at things like fantasy football and fantasy brass bands!!

    Well done Dyl! (Of course it's not over yet until the fat lady sings but somehow I doubt I'm any competition for you...)

    Well, what can I say??
    I'm amazed my predictions have made me the winner.
    I must admit I did study a bit of form(!) and would like to thank Pemberton, Barrhead, Hoover, Lockwood and Grange Moor for helping me out!
    I suppose I'd better apply for a job at 4barsrest now!
    Cheers...I'm really stunned!!!!!!!!


    p.s
    I don't suppose there was a £1000 prize was there?

    ...and £500 for the runner-up.

    There was a fair amount of guesswork on my part but I did keep a record of the results of last years prediction competition. Another piece of guesswork was in the recognition of bands from posters on tMP. Seems keener, busier bands do well on contests.

    In spite of this I was surprised and pleased to finish second. Thanks to all of the keen and hard working people in the (supposedly) dying brass band world.
