The County Fermanagh Section, while hugely disappointed at having to cancel yesterdays Grade 1. due to the incessant rain, wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the many messages of support we have received. There was no doubt that yesterday Fermanagh was in the Lakes rather than the Lakes being in Fermanagh! While the Section does try its best to control as many aspects of the contest as possible, unfortunetly the weather is beyond even our best efforts.
We look forward to a huge improvement in the weather for the rest of the season and want to wish every success to the bands who are travelling next Saturday to Bathgate .
We will see you all next year.
Results Co Fermanagh
The rain came and came again, the result was the grade one championships, much anticipated here in Enniskillen, was cancelled. It was regretful for the local Section, who put so much into the event for it to end like it did but, knowing the resolve of the Fermanagh Section, they will bounce back again.
All thanks to all our own volunteers for a good job.
Results are attached
The County Fermanagh Contest is in Enniskillen at the usual venue, in the grounds of the Lakeland Forum, beside Enniskillen Castle this Saturday, its very close to the town centre. Drivers should follow direction signs to Sligo, Belleek etc on entering Enniskillen from Belfast and the Lakeland Forum is a left turn at Bus Station just past Erneside Shoppping Centre. There is parking in the grounds and also in the free public car park in front of the Royal British Legion. There is also further free car parking in the car park beside Castle which is very close to the contest arena. Fermanagh Council do NOT allow Motor Homes in the Lakeland Forum grounds overnight, our experience is that they do however always manage to find somewhere to park close to the arena.
We are assurred that the weather in Enniskillen while not expected to be as glorious as last year is to be dry and fine.
First band is on the line at 12:00 Noon with Drum Major Dress commencing at 12:00. We are delighted to have an excellent entry across all grades and look forward to seeing you all at the first Gr8 event in Fermanagh this year.
This year two major events are taking place in Enniskillen. On the 18th May 2013 the premier event will be the Co Fermanagh Championship which is taking place in the usual venue right in the heart of Enniskillen at the Lakeland Forum grounds. On Line Entries are now open so do make sure and get them in early.
Our event will of course be an excellent rehearsal for the slightly smaller G8 Summit international event in Enniskillen on 17 and 18 June 2013 at which David Cameron, Barack Obama, Vladimar Putin etc are attending.
