    OK, so it's taken 15 Months and 6 days, taken in two area contests and one national finals, gigs in Kensington Gardens, Golder's Hill, the Beer Festival, churches the Strawberry Fayre, Parson's Green Fate, but alas, not Stamford Bridge.

    I've come to know several great people on this forum, including but not limited to Dinie, Vickitorius, BBCBari, Dianamite, Mikelyons, Roger, Gavin Somerset, Nigel Hall, Jamie, Naruco, Kate_the_Horn, Akwarose, WoodenFlugel, Satchmo Shaz, Andy Wooler, Stephen Clapton, Peter Bale, BBbKeith, Big Twigge and Twigglet, FlugelGal, Keppler, Dyl, Sparkly, HorniKaz, Sam Atherton, Straightmute, Flashbarry, Anglo Music Press and so many more.

    I've been lucky enough to meet a few of those - and look forward to meeting a few more.

    Lots of composing avenues have been opened for me by being a member of this forum - not all successful, but the contacts and feedback has always been useful.

    I've written pieces for tMP folk - The Groove, (for Kirsty and Keppler - coming soon from Pennine Music plug! plug!) the Ballad of the Wooden Flugel, (for WoodenFlugel Duh!! - coming soon from???? Well, we'll see!) and am writing a march for a favourite tMPer of mine.

    Yes, folks, all of these things have occurred since I went from post number one to post number 1000, but it can be summed up in three words.

    John, thank you.

    Well done Will, :clap:

    Hopefully by post no. 2000 i'll be included amongst your list of friends/tmpers you've met. :( Can't have been far off meeting you at the Nationals in Harrogate last year, I spoke to DP briefly after you'd played.

    Good work Will - welcome to the BOC's club...:biggrin:

    It's great! And thanks for naming it after me (well my more well-known alter-ego anyway...). Now all we need to do is find a flugel player that can play it....;)

    I was going to comment on "quality, not quantity", John, but reviewing some of my posts over the 1,000, I'm not going to mention it after all...

    You are far too modest, Ian. I look forward to hearing the piece debut....

    Well, let's see. According to tMP, I'm posting at a rate of .33 messages a day, so if my calculations are correct, it will take me eight and a half years to get my thousanth post!

    Oh, and congratulation, Will! :clap:
