    It's probably just as well that we don't have "one man one vote" in the audience then! I didn't catch Z1 myself but did hear from other "gurus" in the bar that they were unlucky not to qualify.....who knows eh?....we will get the views of the 4br retro shortly and we all know that is the...

    Not my terminology at all! Luckily he will (I hope!) appreciate my poor attempt at levity in describing the vast experience he brings - it certainly came through in our performance. Time to change subject before I'm sacked or worse get asked to play euph again!

    Following an official recount it appears that Mr White does have more London Area wins under his belt that me (but not in the last eight years!!). Apologies tendered! However this should not be a surprise to one and all considering he's been at this game since before the movement...

    Sorry Supersplit....didn't fully answer your question.. Iselin Lande won the horn prize in her first outing on Solo Horn for Redbridge. Lisa Brill won the Euph prize - so well deserved as well. Officially... Dave Thomas of A&N won the cornet prize (he did a nice job accompanying Brian...

    The only "strange" moment related to which of the A&N solo cornets was going to pick up the soloist prize... I understand Dave was a tad quicker off the mark than Bob so got his name on the trophy!!!! As for the result I didn't hear any grumbling this year....!

    Thanks for the support..... we must be terribly lucky to win four in a row! - should guarantee that we drop at least five places on the 4br rankings!!!! I'd like to say congrats to all my old friends at A&N (Essex's No.2 band!!!!) - nice to see them qualify again...I listened to the first...

    Absolutely guaranteed I'm afraid!!!!....especially as Selway, Jones and Pask will still be hungover after the rugby on Saturday...and a No.#1 draw of course!!!!

    Personally I don't mind if they pick either of the "A" bands.....they always seem to get it consistently wrong!!
