Cheers Chris! I've amended my original post to include your additions (and more). Congratulations to all the prize-winners.
Yeah!!! Congratulations to all the prize winners, especially in the youth sections !! It's nice to see so many youngsters contributing to the Brass Band movement !!! It's a shame that some of the older and better bands don't take note and make some sort of effort to turn up ! The "Rally" would be so much better with the inclusion of these bands.

Agree 100% Great turnout in the lower sections - extremely disappointing in the higher sections though.

PS. Sut mae hi'n mynd yng Nghaerdydd?
