It was the pre-show for national championships to see whether we can challenge those around us in the league table. We got to the venue and we were very chilled, there was no need to worry or be nervous - our motto was go out there perform and to have fun after all this production was never meant to be serious but to show our much funnier side to people. This competition was so much easier than it was at Black country and Northampton, however it was the competition of two halves for us. The first half of our show was really positive and really strong. Our second wasn't as confident and positive as our first half was - and this cost the points we needed. We had to wait and see whether they reflected in the results. Remember we go out to better our score! The results came and we were all waiting for our final score ........ 55.50 we beaten our score at Northampton - that's what we went out to do. We even got a caption - Field Wind, its always nice to win a caption! After the results we got back to coach to have a de- brief and see what the staff thought. We set our finals target - 60+. Lets go comets!
We arrived at the venue and we thought; we have had a good break from summer lets get back on it and beat our target what set at the Black Country show. We had time to have a quick run though and then it was time to get ready and walk on round to the back gate and around to the back of the arena. We got to the back and within a matter of 3 minutes we were marching on the field and it was time to hit it hard and see what the performance brings. It was again a gruelling performance something that again we had to dig deep and find it out of somewhere. It was very hard work. We had to find the positives out of somewhere and it was that we can all think when something goes wrong! We can adapt when things take a turn when they are not supposed to. We had a long wait now till the results to see whether we even beaten our previous score. Something we didn't think we would do . The results came round fast and it was time to march on with the other bands to see whether we had done it. It came - Championship class 2nd place ............ Ibstock! REALLY!!! WE COULDNT HAVE GONE AND WON THE COMPETITION!!! ...... 1st place ....... and your champions for the championship class The Comets Performance Ensemble. OH YES!
WE ONLY WENT AND TOOK IT! we also beaten our score that we go previous too. We got a score of 54.83. We achieved what we wanted to in the first place and even took the first place trophy. What a results, What a day. After a tough performance in the morning - and being first on is also hard. We all worked hard to get this win - lets take this on to Stafford!
