“No joy in Mudville” or “Can you believe we drew #1 for the fourth time in row?!!!!”

You can get all the latest reports and updates on the first day of The Yorkshire Areas by going to 4BarsRest.  Iwan did a very fine job of keeping everyone up to date via Twitter.  Here is the photo of Lindley he posted: (Steve and Me playing the 2nd mvt. of the Holst-this is the ppp section so we are turned away from the box/audience)

We played well but were not nearly good enough.  And of course we DREW #1 FOR THE FOURTH STRAIGHT CONTEST AND 5 OF THE LAST 6!!!!!  Amazing!  The band was crunching the numbers on the coach on the way home (after many pints) and it really does look like we are relegated to the 2nd Section.

Back to work on Wednesday and I’m actually conducting.  Could be quite interesting.  I’m hoping the band won’t be too demoralized, as life must indeed go on.

I’m also looking forward to hearing the Championship Section tomorrow evening.  I have my ticket and a score, and it should be a great few hours of listening to English Heritage.
