Thanks folks for them kind words.

Thanks to Ray for doing a great job of organising this event and the judges for doing a splendid job.There were eleven entrants to the competition and the standard of singing was superb.

Banjiman I never realised you were a Catter!

The Badger, Col K and I were the judges and Mrs Banjiman's song was a unanimous choice when we compared marking sheets.

However we were very impressed with the overall standard of entries - we had ties for second and third so it was probably a good job we only had to choose one :-)

I'm looking forward to hearing Wendy again before too long. Please put that link in and then people can hear the winning song.

Tig

Thanks Tig,

Wendy asked me to pass on her thanks to you and the other judges and to Trevor for organising things.

I also really enjoyed the other entries and I don't envy the judges job!

Well done Ossonflags you earned your win,Bold choice of The Organist as your first song and a passionate rendition. You got there by your own effort. All the more impressive because the competition was tough. Nice bunch of sporting competitors too.

I'm starting to worry about Padgett though
He was all businees and bustle
All entries will be in by one pm and its that .......now
Competion entry closed!
If you are not here when your names called you've had it.

Oooohhh all manly
But a nicely run afternoon

But worse than that he seems to have a name as being one of those people who causes others to forget their words. I was earwigging in the Friday afternoon singaround when that came out. I expected the speakers to start rubbing garlic on and walk around ringing a bell shouting out Padgett warnings. Must investigate the phenomenon further. All gossip welcome.

Me and the olds have just arrived back in Edinburgh after one of the best festivals I think we've ever been to - we'd have booked for next year if we could.

I thought the Fred Jordan competition was cracking - might give it a go next time. So relaxed and fun compared to some of the ones I've been in up here! And congrats again to Mick.

I loved everything about the weekend, but the best bit was how friendly everyone was. We all felt really welcomed and at home from the minute we got there, so thanks to everyone for that.

We're off to Innerleithen Festival on Friday, then straight on down to Whitby on Monday - hope to see and hear some of youse there.

Tracy

Well mixed messages abound!

OK so the competition had been a bit too laid back in previous years and so this year I put a time of entry to the competition at 12.30 on the Saturday. As it was, I drew the line at 1pm!

The notices had 12.30 on 'em, displayed in the Fest Office and Con club from Friday

The reason we got straight into the competition was due to some criticism I had about running it like a full singaround last year where people other than entrants were singing too before the competition started, and I missed some singers who were not in the competition ( very sorry).

I decided best to get the competition underway from the start and time left to be used as a normal singaround, which is what I did.

Judges will change every year!

This year Michael O'Leary Johns, Steve Gardham, Dave Howdon and Glen Osborne (thanks to all)

Next year Mick McGarry ~this years winner will be a judge [thanks Mick]

Standard was excellent once again and my thanks to all who had the guts to enter, good experience I hope and please enter again next year!!

I dont judge, lost all me friends doing that

Ray Padgett

Hope to have retired from work by next year's competition and have learnt me songs next year!

ps should be a video recording of the singers/event somewhere?

Padgetts young un
It was far to much fun to criticize
It was so unlike you to be so ......butch
Thought you performed real well just as expected

Meanwhile how come you have this reputation for putting people off their words
It was working well Sat
