    I am currently playing at Barnsley Building Society whilst GeordieColin has a well deserved summer break, well that’s what he said it was.

    The band will be competing in the Second Section National Finals at Harrogate on Sunday 12 September 2004 and are promoted to the First Section in 2005. They are also planning to go to both Pontins and Butlins.

    There are currently vacancies for Principal Euphonium, Front Row Cornet, BBb Bass and tuned percussion. Please contact the band secretary on if you are interested.

    Take a look at the band’s website for details of engagements for the rest of the year.

    Thanks matey. Pete did suggest that he'd go on to BBb and try and get me to sign on EEb. But then who would be principal? I think you'd have too have it as you enjoy sitting next to Pete so much it would be a shame to break up a good team.

    Another first section band (near sheffield)

    If pythagoras, tubafran and timbloke can do this then i guess i can too!
    If you play any instrument then check out barnsley building society band which is near sheffield, students at the uni are already members. we can offer a large female membership under the age of 25, first section playing and free beer if you enter the quiz in the pub after band, cos we keep winning and we need more people to drink it as the tickets are stacking up!

    What's this free beer milarky?? I go home for a month and you start doleing out free beer!!! With my genius I can't see us failing to win the quiz tomorrow night... All those difficult questions on obscure Newcastle Utd players or UK Planning Legislation or errr Korfball shall be answered!! :? :?

    Come to BBS for a bit of a laugh and some quality playing!

    Edited: Unfair assault on moderators deleted :shock: :oops: :oops:

    Colin you won't need to think too hard about the quiz. Hardest question last week was "what did this pub used to be called?" :? - answer was on a painting on way to toilet :) .

    Oh and there's at least 12 free pints to sup and some more to win :lol: .

    Needless to say having depped for you with Barnsley this summer and I can vouch for the what Zanna has said about the band. Good bunch so any new students to Sheffield looking for 1st Section Banding (2005) this is the place to be.

    As your back and Pete's off his holidays from Sunday this Thursday will be my last rehearsal at Barnsley until you swan off for Christmas. Think you will need to buy me a few beers.

    You can have my free beer token ;)

    Seriously though, thanks for the summer and muchos beer will be bought for you, just not in the Button Mill, where I doubt we'll ever have to buy beer again after ANOTHER quiz success on Thursday.... that makes 34 free pints in 3 weeks I believe??!!

    I was most impressed that i got a horse racing question right for the first time ever!!

    Come on everyone.... who won the '93 National??

    You forgot to write that you would be away on tour with Killamarsh Silver Band (yey!) so you wouldn't be there to greet any new players should they choose to come to rehearsal over the next 10 days!!

    Do you have to be a student????? The bit about large female population under 25 sounds very tempting... however, i have just signed for your rivals down the M1 but am willing to come along for a blow :wink:

    I edited my original post a la forum rules, but it didn't get bumped to the top, making the whole thing rather pointless, so please can this be "legal" bump??! ;)

    Mods: I can't seem to be able to edit the thread title... its bit outdated and needs to highlight the fact we need back row too, any chance through you powers you could change it to read "Cornets (Front and Back Row), 1st Section, S.Yorks"

    re. the new guidelines - they don't say you have to edit your original post - we simply need all updates - new players, positions filled etc. to be added to the thread as updates. I'll have another look at the R&Gs and see if I can reword them to be a bit clearer.

    Also, thanks for pointing out the fact that you can't update the thread titles .... we'll try and find a solution to this asap.

    All the best in your search, and at the Areas.

    Due to player movements within the band, we now also have a vacancy on TENOR HORN, so if you play Cornet or Horn, get yourselves along for a blow!
