Is it just me or does anyone else think the RSPBA are having a laugh by releasing twodvd's of the Gr 1 finals at a cost of 20 each!

Last year we got one with at least one performance from each band that qualified. This year we get two: the top 6 on one disc (ie shorter than last year) and the second with the rest.

And I'm pretty sure last years dvd was less than 20 notes too... Although I see it's now marked as 20 on the RSPBA website :rolleyes:

It's allot cheaper than the flight over, hotel, bar, and meal expenses! LOL..
I'm offering them at $39.95 each right now. Not sure what that is in UK pounds ( can't figure out the symbol for UK currency on my keyboard) but I think it's less.

Careful now, don't go using the Super Secret High Sign too casually, the World Police will think you're taunting them.

1$ = 1.2 => 39.95 x 1.2 = 47.94

1 = 1.6 => 47.94 : 1.6 = 29.96

that's quite a lot of money imho...

Would be better to wait to buy'm until next year one's are out???

And then there's people complaining that kids download too much...
if it wasn't all that expensive, there would never have been a reason for people to have started downloading in the first place...

But anyway, that was not really the topic :bg:

Were those calculations based on Canadian or US dollars... As Bobby is Canadian...

Then again, the last time I crossed the border it was a whomping 9% exchange - $1 (US) = $1.09 (Cdn)

£20?? Both DVD's are marked at £15.90, including postage, in their online shop. I've already ordered mine. Last year's are the same price.

Some finger trouble on their site. When I posted this the cost was £19.50 not £15.90.

And no, I'm not cixelsyd :bg:

Sure, Dai. No problem. I'll send them to you as soon as I've finished watching them.

Mind you.. you might not need your Old Age Pension by then. :stopit:
