|To refer back to the original issue, I think it all depends on 'how' the band contests - as a member of the University of Warwick Brass Band (www.brasssoc.co.uk - all non-music students), we take contesting seriously, but not too desperately. If we had come first at the last contest we played at, we would have been very surprised indeed (we came 10th) but we still had an excellent day out. Sorry if that doesn't fit the image but we enjoy playing music and contesting's only a part of that.|
