Sorry, Geoff Whitham was not in the adjudicators-team:

Adjudicators:

Divisions 2,3 and 4: Markus Bach(Switzerland), Durk Lautenbach(Netherlands), Luc Vertommen(Belgium)

1st and Championship Division: Rob Goorhuis(Netherlands), Phillip Sparke(UK), Derek Bourgeois(UK/Spain)

Nothing wrong with these teams but I would have preferred a "true brass band giant" like mr. Whitham(there are a few more though!).

The contest was of a very high standard indeed. It was one of the hardest judging jobs I have EVER had to do (including the Yorkshire Area!) as all the bands could play the piece extremely well and the standard of conducting was of a very high class throughout.

Next time I judge, could some bands please play badly?????

Sounds as if you had a good time......take it you could also see the conductors -
conducting was of a very high class
Forward thinking from the Dutch then.
Good to see/hear you back online again Mr Sparke

Shame I would like to see open adjudication more.
I am sure the adjudicators could also help some conductors....especially in the lower sections.
I know when I started conducting I would have been grateful for constructive criticism.
Anyway glad you enjoyed the playing..........good bands abroad.....they are getting better and better folks.
