The band held its first all-section solo competition on Sunday 30 November. There were 17 entries of solos and duets with the competition divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced sections. Adjudicator Lewis Rowlands was highly impressed with the standard of playing and had a challenge to choose the winners. At the end of the session he congratulated everyone who took part and gave some really useful advice on solo playing, based on his professional experience. Final results were as follows.
Beginner Section – Joint First Prize: Carys, Lucy and Sara.
Intermediate Section – Joint First Prize: Ben and Rebecca; Joint Runners up: Barbara and Poppy.
Advanced Section – First Prize: Marion; Runners up: Kim and Caroline (duet); Highly Commended: Fred, Philip and Rod.
