    Paddy's Scottish Area - 2013

    Thanks Dave. Yes, Mountain Views was a terrible choice for the 1st section, that much is certain. Going from Mountain Views to HM (via Vivat) was always going to be a mammoth challenge, but we put the hard work in, enjoyed the pain and hopefully didn't disgrace ourselves yesterday. We were...

    Great piece. Light years away from 'Mountain Views'. However, is anyone else finding discrepancies between the score and the parts? :mad:

    Paddy's British Open - 2010

    You have misunderstood. The results were not the surprise. Iain means the post-contest reaction from the MD's. The results from Troon as well as this year and last year's Open have been accepted by all the players with 100% dignity. Why wouldn't they be? Like every other band in the land, we...

    Scottish Open/Shield/Cup/Youth 2009

    I heard them. I didn't think much to their piece, but I thought the playing was outstanding. Their whole trombone section were very impressive, as was the soprano, and the conductor seemed to have total control throughout. Many congrats to them!

    rules in Scotland

    Come on Di! Even I understand this............. It only affects the relegation process. Two bands still go up automatically. The only problem remaining is that of the bands who don't attend the contest. What happens to these bands?

    North West Regional Championships - 2009

    Congrats to John Collins and Oldham (Lees). A very impressive performance, especially from the young lad on soprano who was spot on throughout. Other highlights for me included the solo euph and trombone from United Co-op 2000, and also the overall performance from Rainford. I had them up there...

    were we robbed? where's the CD?

    I think all the conductors involved in a contest would find it very useful to hear the winning performance, as would any player who takes contesting remotely seriously.

    New Flugel ??

    The Bach Strad is perfect for me, and has been for a number of years. The only problem I've had was not with the playing, it was with the lacquer. My hydrochloric hands destroyed it completely. The guys at First Class brass recently relacquered it and now it's sounding like Arthur Mullins...
