Default Richmond and Waxhaw

Okay people, time to give it up! How did the comps go at these two last contest of the year? The only one I remember for sure was that Rockville High won 1st in Grade V at Richmond. How did the rest of the events pan out?

This has nothing to do with the results, I'll post in the beer tent also, but I lost a cap at Waxhaw and I know it seems silly but it has great sentimental value for me. It is a black Dodge Motorsports cap with flames on each side of the brim. If anyone found it please contact me, I'll glady pay shipping to get it back. Thanks.

At Waxhaw Mr. Derrick Russ won both of his events and the overall prize in Grade 4 Senior. That was a tough crowd Saturday, AGL's all around us - many kudos to you Derrick!

Richmond was an incredible disappointment this year. I chose it over Waxhaw because it is closer to me, and in the past you could park the car right by the judges tents. This year they had it in a entirely fenced in area and made us walk totally to the other end of the fairgrounds twice just to get it. Both "ends" didn't know who was supposed to be allowed in. Then, because the weather had been so bad only half of the registered entrants showed up. It's Waxhaw next year if they both are on the same Saturday again!!

We had a few no shows as well at Waxhaw. The weather turned out fine though. There was a change from years past as far as where the piper and drummer parking was supposed to be. It was ideal for competing, but because I was playing with a band too I eventually had to lug all of my gear up the hill to where the band tents were. Then, I found out that they weren't being so strict about parking in the first place and I could have parked right next to the band tent. No biggie, just an annoyance. Thanks to Mark Watson (and volunteers!) Waxhaw was great again this year in every other respect. Good job, guys!

Also, Richmond results are up: Richmond 2006

(Helen Harlow should be required to attend all EUSPBA events from now on, even if they're on the same day. Just kidding, )

I couldn't disagree more.

Richmond has always been my favorite festival of the year. It doesn't attract as many bands and soloists (because it's at the end of the season, I suppose), but I think it draws more spectators than any other festival in the mid-Atlantic.

As for parking, it sounds like you ended up in the general admission lot. If you competed in the solos, you should have received a participant pass that would let you park right next to the piping area.

And the mud? I've seen worse at Loch Norman -- and I still have the kilt hose to prove it.
