Does anyone have the results of Truro contest which was held yesterday (9th April)?

kirmat said:Just as a point of interest, I was reading a few of my Dad`s old CBBA programmes from the Sixties recently and I noted that my band Soundhouse Brass (then Plymouth Silver) were allowed to compete at this contest on numerous occasions,
would anybody object if we approached the CBBA about perhaps entering next year.
Although our Bandroom is of course in Devon (just!) many of our players are Cornish and/or reside in Cornwall itself....just a thought!
Roy Taylor said:... just wondered why the other big Cornish bands never attended. If Camborne and Lanner could do it why not the others. It's the only Cornish contest of the year (Bugle is Open) and I would have thought it would be better attended. It's a fabulous venue and a good contest to play in
iggmeister said:Mount Charles Youth were in Manchester playing at the National Youth Band Champs. The senior band has at least 8 youth band players. Entry wouldn't have been possible. Mount Charles did support the contest towards the late 90's when none of the others did.
There is no prize money at the contest.
It is very close to both the Area and the Grand Shield.
I disagree that it is a fabulous venue. Just better than the Riviera centre!
Also after the comments made on stage at the results last year about lack of top section entry (there were no entries) I am surprised any of the Cornish Championship section bands wanted to enter.
Cant say I know why Bodmin not there.
Kayleigh said:My personal view is that if you live in cornwall and play in a cornish band you should support the cornish contests and give them priority. I enjoyed the weekend as much as others and would like to congratulate every band/person who took part.
