we all get the idea though.. :)

well done on your result..


can someone explain to me though, why 4 went through at the top and 3 in the 3rd? I'm not familiar with the mechanics...

The number of bands that go through from the lower sections is determined by the number of bands who compete in the section. For the top section only the 4 bands from the previous years finals qualify plus the two highest place bands at the area. If a band qualifying from the previous years area comes in the top two, the two next highest placed bands go through. This is possible for up to 4 bands to go through to the finals from any one top section area. Clear as mud innit?

BTW Heather. I meant to say that I heard your band and I thought your second horn player was an absolute star!!!

Must have got the wrong band Jimothy!!
Our 2nd Horn sucks (literally) and the sooner we get rid the better.

our 2nd Baritone is pretty good though!

shouldnt that be that it is possible for 6 bands to qualify from one area in theory if, say, 4 north-west bands came in the top 4 at the previous finals...

Aidan,

Yes, you're absolutley right. I consumed a small alcoholic beverage last night and my sums aren't very good today.

It is also possible for a band to get relegated and still go to the finals too I would imagine. Would require freakish results, but could happen!

Any thoughts on the top section results? I thought we played better than 4th, and I heard a lot of people say Faireys should have won. Comments?

Hi Chris,

I heard the same in the bar, everyone seemed to be of the opinion that Faireys should have won, and I didn't hear one person say Fodens had won it. Possibly most surprising because the adjudicator said there was only 1 outstanding band on the day.

I heard Leyland and thought it was a very classy performance! I can't compare it to any of the other North West bands cos i didn't hear any others, but I really enjoyed it. Don't quite understand how you came below haydock, but at least you got through to the nationals, well done! :)

Fodens seemed to be quite amused that they won it aswell.. most of them wernt expecting it at all!

Cheers Nobby

Aidan, that's the most sense you've talked in ages! :D

I also heard Fodens weren't that pleased with their performance. Seems they can't lose when Russel conducts, and can't win with Bram Tovey :?

Right off for my lunch. 8)
