    I know this is fast becoming a well worn thread on TMP, but who's going to be attending the Borders contest in picturesque Innerleithen on 15th Nov.

    Don't know the bands that are going so would be interested to see who'll be there.

    I'm there with Newlands Concert Brass, should be a good day out (4 pubs in total in the town I've heard :? )

    I might be there helping out Clydebank, still to be confirmed.

    By the way enjoyed your solo at Whitburn.

    I am going!!! :wink:

    That is, if you don't already know what band I play for, is Tullis Russell Mills Band!

    There are more drinking establishments than you mention in Innerleithen! Sure you will try most of them, I have!!!
    I think the bands attending are:

    Annan Town (APD) Band
    Barrhead Burgh Band
    Campbeltown Brass Band
    Clydebank Burgh Band
    Dumfries Town Band
    Flimby Saxhorn Silver Band
    Hawick Saxhorn Band
    Jedforest Instrumental Band
    MacTaggart Scott Loanhead Band
    Newland Concert Brass Band
    North Ayrshire Band
    Peebles Burgh Silver Band
    Selkirk Silver Band
    Shotts St. Patrick's Brass Band
    St. Ronan's Silver Band
    Tullis Russell Mills Band

    From that list I think I'm right in saying that North Ayrshire have withdrawn, as have Annan.

    Should be a good contest, knowing the people involved it should be well organised. The draw was made today but cant really remember many of them!

    Thanks David, the band were thrilled at the win, especially after all the problems we've had in the past month or so (Band hall broken into, registration hiccups etc.) and I'm delighted as it was my first win as a wagger :D

    Also thank you to the contest organisers who were so helpful before we went on stage, they did a brilliant job.

    Well done to St Ronans, a band that's making a big mark lately.

    Well done David. Didn't get to hear the Band as we were rehearsing but I gather it was a very good performance.

    We were quite pleased with our performance but there you go. That's contesting!!

    See you in March!

    Flugel Horn,

    Thanks for that. Didn't hear other bands as I seemed to develope a real thirst after we'd played, just about the time of the Scotland game. Funny that!

    Thanks again,

    Well done Big Man and also to Mark Bell at Newlands. Sorry I couldn't be there as I had a rather pressing engagement helping Whitburn at Hampden, doing the best we could annoying the Dutch team and supporters. We played the Dutch National Anthem 3 times when apparently (we only found out later, honest) there are only 2 verses :D :D :D
