Lol, it might be a long march but at least it was straight. Although the cars parked on the side of the road nearly got in my way! The joys of marching!!

Deportment...woo-hoo! That's a first...good job there were no corners!

Well lets face it Paul, if it wasn't absolutely tipping it down it would give you a markedly better chance than last year!! We didn't so much "march" as "paddle" in 2007!! :-?

I think i've figured it out!! Sally and I actually managed to stay in step with our line this time rather than trailing behind (we only have little legs) the past few times, plus by some extreme fluke we all turned and walked off at the same time when we had done...either that or the rest of you must've been terrible on the march!!!

Well done to Marsden!

The results

I would like to thank, on behalf of The Morley Lions & The Morley Entertainments Committee, all of the bands who took part in the contest on Sunday. There was some excellant playing on offer which was appreciated by audience and supporters alike.:clap:

Overall winner = Marsden (Ch)
Overall 2nd = Knottingley (Sect.1)
Overall 3rd = Grange Moor (Sect.1)
We had 2 section 1 bands entered, who came 2nd & 3rd overall, which meant that the prize for Best Section 1 band not in the above prizes was withdrawn
Similarly we did not have an entrant in the Section 2 category
Best section 3 = Garforth Brass
Best Section 4 = Tingley Brass
Best Youth = Sellers Int.
Best Contest March = Marsden
Best Hymn = Marsden
Best Foot March = Marsden
Best Deportment Open = Grange Moor
Best Deportment Youth = Sellers Int

Congratulations to everyone, and we look forward to seeing you all again next year

Contest Controller

Seems fair to me! If a band can't win best of a section if they're in the overall prizes, they will have to relinquish 2nd prize overall. Let's see which Knottingley prefer...
