jambo said:Nice lively topic here boys,
From what was a nice 'we've done a great gig and i'm chuffed' statement to this is quite amuzing
We had a great weekend, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, played as well as I as MD could wish for. So as jambo says i'm well chuffed.
mikelyons said:The question "Why would you want to?" raises its head. What is the point? If non-contesting bands don't want to compete with you, why do you want to compare yourself to them in the first place?
Is this some kind of evangelism? "Ve Haf Vays off Making You Compete!"
:?: Is there a "final solution" to this, maybe? Have all the non-competitive bands lined up and shot? Put them all in large camps and play Vinter test pieces at them, with the ultimate punishment being Harrison Birtwistle?
critic said:It does not matter at what level you play at the first thing is to enjoy it. The more you play as a unit the better the standard becomes. Music is a great way to relax and if you reach the highest standards great if not just enjoy it for what it is.
