Well, 3rd section results were bizarre to say the least! Not totally convinved the men in the tent were listening to the same bands we were. But as they say that's banding

I thought 14th was a harsh result for Cubbington. However it's the opinions of the men in the tent that count.
I think the test piece, Olympus, lent itself to a great deal of interpretation, especially in tempo and dynamic. I felt my band played well, but finished well down the order. I heard 2 of the bands in the top 4 and the second placed band played the piece quite differently from my own. It seems that they played the piece exactly the way the adjudicators liked it and good luck to them. I was not to sure what the pre-result pep talk from the adjudicator about the tempo really meant. Anyway good day, well done to all who played and good luck to the Midlands finalists at Cheltenham.


Chuffed to bits with our 5th place at Bedworth this afternoon! :woo:woo:wooCongrats to Desford!
Just got back from Bedworth after covering fourth Section a racking day. Well done to Burbage BUXTON and all the qualifyers plus the rest for a first class ran contest.


Looking like Newhall and Trentham up to the 3rd section next year with Burbage missing out by 0.5 on points

Well done to all bands yesterday happy ICCB going to be going back to the finals for a 2nd year in a row.

Newhall were well pleased with how the day turned out. Really happy for many members of our band who deserve a few of the good things. Congrats to all those who tasted sucess and well done to the others for trying and maybe next year will be yours.
Congratulations to Newhall on reaching the Finals and to Trentham and Newhall for gaining promotion to the Third Section. Feel very sorry for Burbage who did everything they could do and miss out on promotion by 0.5 point.
