I hope to have videos of the performances again this year from Sunday. Right now, I'm having issues with some of the Grade 2 recordings but I hope to get them transferred successfully soon. I'll post when I have them ready to view.

Jim, I got every performance in the circle on Sunday—all grades. It'll take me days to process and upload them all. (I have a full-time job and my home internet is super slow.)

Does anyone know how many (and which) bands were competing in the Grade 2 contest? It sounds like it was more than 3, since North Stratton and Portland Metro each failed to make the prize list on one of the days.

All my videos of the performances are now up:

The one thing that kills me is that I made an error and didn't get the winning Pasadena Scots performance. Ouch. (Sorry to Jennifer and team!)
