HI John !
Just so you know, there have been some big alterations to the bradford event, so here goes:
Day 1 now only consists of Sheldon Heath, Thornton, Central Technology College and Haycliffe (moved from day 2)
Day 2 consists of Buttershaw, Tong, Royds and Airedale
so sadly it's only 4 schools each day :-(

PS Thanks to Mayfield Students and staff - as you all know, I will always think of you as the best!

GOOD LUCK BUTTERSHAW!!
James (Ex Buttershaw High)
Well done to all the schools last nite ! You wer all fab, specially the primary schools (you did so well!)
Congrats St Bennies and Whitehaven (you wer great) but very well done to Southfield and good luck to us in Grimsby
Whooo !! Back home :)
It may have been a mini-heatwave for the London Marathon but it was low cloud and rain, rain, rain in the Lake District today (and not before time, judging by the state of some of the rivers and lakes)
OK ... on with today's messages ...
GOOD LUCK TO ALL MY TEAM AT PORTSMOUTH COLLEGE !
We've been working hard for this ... we may be a small team but let's give a massive performance!!!
Lots of love - danielle (tramp 1) X
(Danielle ... I know that trying to run a team in a 16-to-19 FE College has to be about one of the hardest ways to do Rock Challenge imaginable ... well done to you all
A big shout out for Manhood Community College!
Just had our last rehearsal today and it looks wicked, - everyone has worked really hard
Looking forward to tuesday - it's going to be a great day !
Good luck to the other schools competing - can't wait to see what everyone has come up with!!
OMG i cn't say how good yesterday was ! (My throat is actually killing me lol)
I was so proud of us all at bennies n haven n so pleased we gt placed cz it was my last year :(
(I cnt believe it. No more rock challenge for me :((
(Dnt worry, i am definitely coming back next year with you on the day so we can still be the loudest school there even if i won't be living here and more :)
Thank you so much to nichola and miss ramsey for putting up with me over the years, and i'm really gona miss our practices when i move. Luv u as much as framsey luvs haribo lol (private joke lol :)
A very very big congratulations to southfield for coming first ! You were great, as well as all the other schools there yesterday
Lots and lots of love and kisses from the really loud girl at bennies and haven who couldn't shut up all day long
ps TIM, TIM - GIVE US A WAVE lol xxxxxxxxxxx
A very big WELL DONE to the Cockermouth team for coming first on Friday at Carlisle - you were OUTSTANDING (this is the comment I have had said to me many times since Friday by people who were there)
As soon as I saw the rehearsal I knew we were in with a chance and once the costumes were on there was no stopping you all. You all looked great and wore your costumes well
Thanks for being so patient during the mammoth hair and make-up session, but it was worth it because the girls who were boys did look like (cow)boys! Even Ramsay felt the girls looked more manly than he did so we had to paint on more facial hair to keep him satisfied!!!
My ears are still ringing from all the screaming after the result.
I'm keeping my funky pink cowboy hat ready for Grimsby. Let's hope the AS exams don't affect too many of the cast :((
Well done too to Stainburn and Firpark
I then went along to Carlisle 2 as well, and really enjoyed the night, so congratulations to Southfield, Bennies/Whitehaven and Nelson Thomlinson.
See you at Grimsby, Southfield !
Janet Wilde (aka "Wilde West Designs")
OMG what a truly wicked day friday was!!!
Well done to The Lakes, St Joes and - of course - our rivals for a million years, Stainburn!!!! You were all so good and we really didn't think we had a chance of getting into the top 3!!
Also well done to Firpark and Mayfield - you guys were so good as well. You really bring the fun to rock challenge, and I loved both your performances!
This is my last year at rock challenge (and after 5 years i really don't want to stop) but what a way to end it!!
Bring on grimsby, and i can't wait to come and watch you all next year!!!
Well done everyone!!!!
Love - Suzie xx (Cockermouth)
Congratulations to everybody who performed at Carlisle days 1 and 2. Two fantastic shows !
Thanks to Stuart and Kimberley (both ex-Peterhead) who hairdressed, face painted, stage crewed and follow-spotted for Firpark.
Thanks also to a wonderfully spirited guy from another team (whose name I cannot remember) who assisted Firpark on the second followspot: you showed the true spirit of Rock Challenge
The Firpark staff were excellent, giving up so much time and putting in so much effort, and are now well and truly hooked on the Rocka experience :)
Emily, you did a fantastic job on the dvd (and you thought you were just coming along to assist backstage originally :))
And finally - to the pupils of Firpark Secondary School, who behaved perfectly all day and night (and that for some of you was a massive achievement in itself) and put in an excellent performance on stage at night
Oh ... Lorna and all the Peterhead crew deserve a special thank-you for lending us many of the costumes and driving to Livingston with the cow in the boot of their car! You guys Rock !
(Ed: that's a 300-miles return trip ? :))<br>Vanessa Geib
Well Done to all the schools at Carlisle Day 2 ! Your performances were great
Southfield's performance was amazing - brilliant costumes and music
Good luck for Grimsby - it's great we now have TWO Cumbrian schools representing us !

Hellooo there! Haven't posted in AGES so thort i would come and sey hello :)
The deadline of april 27th draws near ... a mere 5 days to go - how very scary!
We still have many a thing to tweak and finish by the day but in true sandown style i do believe we will put the finishing touches on around 15 mins before we perform
Good luck to the other island schools - especially Sandham, who are performing tomorrow :D
Apart from feeling about 50 years older from the stress of running global rock i am extremely excited and proud of our team for putting in so much extra time (Including u dedicated ones yesterday making hat on the court outside :) (Ed: Sam ... explain "making hat" ... "making hay", perhaps ? :)
A special mention to my fellow student leaders and choreographers - Sophie, Rosie and Rach ! Hope you are not feeling the stress too much. (Rosie, i can't wait to see ur dressing up again this year ... for those of u who competed at either southern grand finals last yea or portsmouth day 4, i think u will remember rosie for her plastic bottom, 5ft hat and madonna b**bs! OR a gigantic spider with a bowl on her head!) (Ed: ohhhhhhh yes ! :)
Wow, i truly am writing an essay here so let's cut it short ... good luck, evry1, and see u on friday hehehee
Sam (Sandown High)
Apologies to everyone for being delayed with messages these last 2 or 3 days :(
Thank-you from Wendy and myself for two glorious days at Carlisle (and it was sooooo good to see so many old friends there too, even from as far away as Peterhead in Scotland :)
Apologies for messing up your theme on the website, Cockermouth - 'tis corrected now :)
Sunday today ... a gentle drive through part of the Lake District for us (and maybe a short stroll up a small hill somewhere too :) before the drive home ... see you all later tonight ...

I really thought that stainburn were excellent today but Cockermouth beat them to the post with their flawless performance. It was definitely a close one
Well done to everyone - you are all champions !
Stainburn can now not say that they are undefeated. They have strong competition and i cannot wait for next year's rock challenge to see what they both bring to the table. (Cockermouth were definitely the louder team though! My ears are buzzing! :)
I cannot believe it. COCKERMOUTH WINS! I am so proud of them all and couldnt imagine helping at any other school. You truly all earned it!
Grimsby, here we come !
Like the judges said.. it was something that could definitely be seen on a west end stage! You are so professional!
Love you all !
Now ... let's get practising (and get those costumes back in!)
Not so much looking forward to ANOTHER 6 hrs non-stop doing hair ... but it's worth it!
Emma (volunteer - costume and hair)
Apr 20thGood luck to the wonderful bennies and haven team who will be shining on stage carlisle day2 !!!
This year's dance is awesome and considering you've been rehearsing for only 8 weeks i think you should be very proud and i'm very proud of you all!!
Hope all runs smoothly for our local teams at carlisle day2!! See you tomorrow, john, bright and early!!!
Good luck to all the other schools competing tomorrow!!

I can tell this year is going excellent because this is our best performance yet. The competition should be no match to our Cowes High entry.
Look forward to seeing the finished piece on the day

Apr 18thEd: 'tis 10pm and I'm about to close down the little laptop and head down the motorway from Yorkshire to Nottingham, ready for tomorrow's event. Straight after tomorrow's evening show I'm hitting the night roads again, this time for two days at Carlisle. Messages may thus be erratic over the next few days ... but there WAS wireless broadband in Carlisle last year so Friday / Saturday should be good. Just Nottingham may be a problem.
ps loved Malet Lambert's production of "Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" tonight - thanks for letting us know about it, Gemma ! :)
