The band held its annual solo competition on Sunday 28 February. There were 18 entries including solos, duets, a trio and a quintet, with the competition divided into beginner, intermediate and advanced sections. Professor Gordon Campbell was the adjudicator and he generously gave every performer a mini-masterclass on improving their playing skills. Gordon was highly impressed with the standard of playing from some of the younger performers and he had a challenge to choose the winners. Final results were as follows.

Beginner Section  –  First Prize: George Digby.  Highly Commended: Stephen Knight..

Intermediate   –  Joint First Prize: Murray and Matthew.  Highly Commended: Garry, Rebecca and Carys (trio).

Advanced   –  First Prize: Oli Moring,  Highly Commended: Rod Stevens.
