    I guess most bands have annual awards around this time of year - bandsman of year etc. Well, Langley were no different, except we changed the categories for the awards this year just to liven things up.....

    Split of Year
    Most drunken moment of Year
    Senile of Year
    Charmer / Flirt of Year
    Worst excuse for missing a rehearsal
    Blonde moment of Year
    Ripper of Year
    Worst excuse for a duff note of Year
    Dep of Year

    Obviously I cant post the winners names for fear of being lynched, but they were all awarded lovely certificates at the xmas dinner :D

    Anyone else have similar un-stuffy awards?

    What a cracking idea :)

    Much better than boring old bandsman of the year. I bet people really look forward to winning some of those awards :) Mind you, if someone gets senile of the year three times in a row, wouldn't it just be better to forget about it? ;)

    Hehehe, some good ones in there. Glad my band dont have them, I'd be the forerunner for most of them! ;)

    Edinburgh Uni Wind band has some random awards after and trip they do, the one that springs to mind is the "feeling a little fresher" award. Use your imagination on that one and you won't be too far off....:-D

    I'd consider myself an underdog if I won it, but will keep hoping ;)

    We have a few and they like to make it so there's a category to suite every one of the errors you make in life!

    Hmm, yes, ours seem to change every year.

    We did this at Waitakere at the Annual Band Dinner.

    Simon my husband won the 'Worst Marcher' against some stiff competition from Ken Cant and I won the award for 'will do anything to play soprano in the band including er, erm, well, er, with the conductor'.

    It was a good laugh.
