The pub is closer this year if the bar at the college is not open. For reference, the nearest pub is the 1852 - turn left out of the college, cross the road and it is 2 mins walk away.

Are the results announced after each section or en masse at the end of all sections. If the latter anybody know roughly what time that is likely to be.

Could do with knowing this so we can plan refreshment stops on return to Land of the Canary!

You obviuosly missed my post at the top of the page - pay attention alex!!! (eerrrr scary remenisions of last year!!! :? )

As said previously I am very happy to buy you a coke!!!

Anyway back to topic - 1852 is ok, I think the plough is better, I have it only fairly (ok vaguely) good authority that the bar should be open though, not sure about the results though, soz! I'll phone me bro and let you know! :D

I know some of the results.....

3rd/4th Section;

1st Carlton Brass
2nd Shirland Training
3rd Hitchin

Am also aware Snibston and Desford won the 2nd section and Blidworth came 2nd (well done guys!)

Non Contesting - Thorseby Youth came 1st

One thing I would like to say about this contest is *shock* how good in my opinion the adjudicator of the lower sections was.

The contest had requested all the scores of the test pieces early so that the adjudicator could actually study the scores before the day (which in my opinion should be essential!!) and so they knew what he was looking for with each band.

Also, he complimented all of the young players from the non-contesting section on the stage, and I hope his remarks reflected this positive nature as it can be so disheartening for children to be slated (well it is for all of us but we adults just get drunk!)

I personally would like to see more own choice contests use the same format and give the adjudicators the scores early. Seems it can only benefit we bandsmen! :wink:
