FMM 6th laughing laughing laughing LEMON SUCKING TIME AGAIN fer Parkesy "WHO ORDERED IT"


RP's pipes fell apart on the park, something about his blow piece stock coming right out the bag. IMO FMM should have been disqualified, but judges wont do that to FMM!! SLOT had 3 blooters and a bloody awful D all the way through, heard the tale end of Strathclyde polis who had a blooter in there aswell, never heard Shotts so cant comment on them, Heard the power on youtube and not impressed with their sound, high G's not very nice. We had that best run in a while and everyone was happy and although I will obviously be biased I reckon we should have been further up the prizes, so did Davie Methven in fact he said we won it out the park in his opinion but that is only his opinion and at the end of the day that counts for nothing. I dont think SLOT should have taken first place but there are only so many times that you will win a major because you deserved to win in previous years and didn't. Vale felt hard done by but they didn't inform the RSPBA in writing of their intention to change their reel so they were disqualified and then refused to play at centre bands, reckon the RSPBA will come down on them for that. All in all a good day although the results were suspect (pre judged) in some people's opinion. Pint

Shots were nice on the day IMHO i thought hey should have taken it..agree with everything said above. The Clan drum corps was booming before they went on just thought I would mention that. One thing I did notice and started to get on ma t3ts was the comments at the arena side from guys in lower grade bands critising the G1 bands, espicially Shotts, they must have heard someone else saying the same thing somewhere else and just copied the statements to make themselves look good, If they were that good and had enough talent they would be playing rather than watching.....pri4ks. Anyway gid day out and ma wee band was 7th in qualifing just missed out, never mind...roll on the worlds Pint

LOL!!!! Evening all! Not long in. Feet and legs in absolute agony. When took brogues off last night they were covered in cuts and blisters. Good day yesterday and a nice park. Was shocked at the Grade 1 results, didnt see the FM thing as I was standing at the other side of the ring and missed SLOT's performance.

Well now, we've all had our moans 'n groans 'n after the dust settles what's gonna be done about it?, I'll tell ya..........sweet fork all.

The bands have no swingers to take action, would rather go online behind a username 'n gripe like a bunch a school kids.
Yes it's hard to take, been on the receiving end of a few WTF results myself 'n it's a bitter pill to swallow. Guess what, ya go to yer branch meetings 'n sit like bloody nodding dogs in the back shelf of a motor.

The only way IMO to make the RSPBA sit 'n take notice is to walk to the line at the worlds 'n do an about turn.

There again it'll take everyone to do it 'n a can't see that EVER workin', So just suck the lemons like RP.... laughing laughing laughing

BTW, fair play to the grade 1 PM who shouted the odds when the lemon suckers were called out 6th, bet he gets pulled fer that, but the judge that had FMM 1st will not.

Not long back and just popped in to see what comments were made, and i can say a neutral. the results were a bloody disgrace, I stood at the side of the arena, and witnessed along with Gilian and prior to that Peter, the mistakes made?
I thought Shotts drum Corps (even wi their pink Sticks??) were ace, but how in the name oh the wee man, they worked out those placings i will never know? a bloody disgrace I say.

Totally agree Robbie? I mean I was supposedly ten feet away from him Waving? I still have not met him? yet Robbie found us? and he is blind?? laughing laughing laughing I kept getting all these cryptic texts? but thats the lot, what some folks will do to avoid buying a pint? A certain Irishman was hard to catch/ but eventually traced him via the Burger stall?
Great to meet everyone again, and others including Chiddy for the first time, well worth the tiredness, And i say again the Boggies were robbed
