Yeh really enjoyed myself! We had a little detour, missed one turning and ended up in Huddersfield! oops!! Still managed to do 10, pretty good! Glad the weather stayed fine!

Just Crazy

we had a slight problem with our coach but got there i the end!

Manage to fit in 5 which is not too bad.

Did see the TMP band but was a bit bothered about my playing, so i didnt have chance to speak to anyone.

Hope you had a good night.I do wish i had played with you lot.
we did 8 in the end

could have pushed for 10 if we had set off a little earlier perhaps but i think we were glad to get them out of the way in the end

an enjoyable w.f. non the less and pretty good weather for most of it i think, certainly stayed dry everywhere we went :)

we asked the stewards how many bands were queueing at each place we passed... if it was 3 maybe 4 or less.. we did it. simple.

talking about something fishy

Did anyone hear the rmour that DYKE requested (and were allowed) to go on first whereever they turned up?


We did 13 contests and there were certainly no special favours.
We had a great route - we had done 7 contests by 6.30! WE then got trapped in the queue at Broadoak so waited about an hour then got motoring again.

Some of the tameside contests were very quiet & had it not been for Broadoak we could have done a hell of a lot more......

What about the fire Dukinfield ?
The barby gas bottle went up in flames as we were due to play !

They were telling us about that. We arrived just after it had happened.
I think they must have been trying to beat last years 'smokiest barbeque ever' award!!!

Ransomes did 11. Again, there were no special favours. It was plain sailing all the way round, apart from a small hold up at Upper Mossley and a slightly bigger hold up at the end of the night at Broadoak.

If the 4barsrest result for Delph is right (ie a record 75 bands out) then it's no wonder that bands struggled to get more done in Saddleworth.

We managed 8. Really slow going. I doubt very much there was any dodgy behaviour going on... you just get luckier some years than others. Last year we sailed round, and if it hadn't been for a detour to Dob X (2 hours) We probably could have done at least 14. Just down to luck.
