Naughty, naughty, could that quote be applied to us. We enjoyed the contest last year. Well run, nice venue, but a dreadful rainy day, then we had to go and do a concert in Dover town hall. Finished the job, set off, bus slowed down on the M1 for the first drop off (me thankfully) at Nottingham, and the bus's gearbox blew up. I got home at 3 in the morning, the rest of the band got in at 6am.Accidental said:There's usually 8 ish in each section but you don't normally find out until the day! Not sure if theres any pot hunters (did I say that? I meant guest bands :lol: ) coming from Europe or Yorkshire this year - usually makes the Championsdhip section a bit more interesting.
If you want to find out today., Ian Carter (SCABA sec.) is pretty approachable.
I thibnk this has more to do with Folkestone being nearer to the continent than any other contest - the Belgians would already be home from this one whilst the brit bands were still stuck coming back from Dundee!Accidental said:SCABA seem to go out of their way to attract "visitors" to our contests, especially from the continent
Thank you! You not only got the point I was trying to make, you explained it better too!!IYOUNG said:..... those bands taking part play in the correct section.
