    In a similar vein, I nominate Ian Burton, aka Ipswich Trom for his "above and beyond" in finding an available player to dep after a request was made for a player on tMP.

    Does an nominee have to be a tMP member? I assume not, but I thought I'd check before I jump in!

    After a quick conflab, we've agreed that a nominee does NOT have to be a tMP member, to nominate away. :):tup

    I nominate our Band President Tony Collins. He has worked tirelessly in securing a new home for our band. In 2001 the band decided to begin the steps to move out of our home on Georges Street, Drogheda (our home for almost 100 years) and now in 2008 the bandroom has been sold and we now hope to be in our new purpose built bandroom in June. So why am i nominating him. He has had to attend meeting after meeting with local council members, solicitors, estate agents and with the band itself. He has devoted over 50 years of his life to the band and this project is the biggest one the band has ever undertook and he has been the driving force behind it and without him this historic move would not be possible.

    I would like to nominate "Flugelman". Who due to a sad lack of bass players at Kippax (due in no small part to me and my sidekick Wilky retiring/jumping ship) made the glorious sacrifice of renouncing his small insignificant instrument and delve into the murky but fulfilling waters of "bassism".
    Dave has moved around the band previously to help the cause, but not on such a scale as this!
    Add to this Daves hard work keeping the website going strong and entertaining all in the changing facilities with his "humour" and lime green under kecks, and you will see what a worthy candidate we have.
    Keep up the good work Dave :tup

    I want to nominate Alan Edmond, who has shown great resolve since his appointment in his full-time role as Scottish Youth Development Officer. He works tirelessly to promote banding to the young people of Scotland, with background work securing resources so that local organisations can kickstart banding at grassroots.

    I'd like to nominate Peter Moore.

    For his outstanding win in the young musician of the year competition. Which in turn will have raised the profile of banding for a short time at the very least.

    Oh, here's some back-up why I feel Alan Edmond is worthy of the award ... The Scottish Region this year now has over 30 youth projects at various stages of development. An example is the entry for the Scottish Youth Championships where there are 21 bands competing in 4 sections including 6 in the brand new Novice section for kids aged 14 and under. The contest has grown at a fantastic rate, bearing in mind that it didn't take place after 1999 due to lack of interest and the fact that it was held in an old school gym hall. It started again in 2003 along with the Scottish Open and had 8 bands in 2005, then 11 last year and now 21 this year requiring a separate day just for youth in the prestigious Perth Concert Hall!! Not bad results for someone only recently appointed to the SBBA post, don't you think?

    i would like to nominate Lucinda Gough principle of Bleanavon Town Band. She has exemplified the role of leader of the band this year. A typical example was leading up to a recent TV recording, she was involved in a serious car accident on the day of the recording, she carried out her duties to her normal exacting standards, led the band all whilst in extreme back and neck pain

    Bravo Lucinda and thanks

    I'd like to nominate robert birkett, who after 50 years at the parr band has had to take a sebatical due to health.
    I believe that he should get this award because of the all the hard work he has put in to keep the band going in trying times, he has taught a vast amount of youngsters to play (approixmately 50-70 in the past 8 years and has always kept their interest)
