    Firstly, thank you all for your good wishes. Much appreciated. To answer Dinie, we've knocked the areas on the head this year. 17 still isn't enough for me (personal opinion, mind) to have a crack at something like Vizcaya. What we've agreed to do is just consolidate, regroup, make sure the player advertisement campaigns are constant (!) and though we've earmarked Folkestone for SCABA as the next contest to aim for (in October), things are going well enough to at least hope we'll have enough to enter the SCABA Entertainment contest at Crawley on May 16th. We're aiming to do an ambitious indoor concert programme the day before (including straightmute's excellent arrangements of La Rejouissance and the Charpentier Te Deum! Cheers, SM!)

    Regards

    Croydon Brass Band urgently require solo euph

    Our solo euph has had to give up playing suddenly due to 'mouth' problems. A busy summer season and two indoor concerts in the next month necessitate that we fill this chair a.s.a.p. Nationally Section 3 and locally section 2 band, rehearsing every Monday and most Fridays in Thornton Heath from 8pm to 10pm. Lots of new players have recently come to join!

    If you're a budding solo euph, come along and give us a try! Reply by private message or to the email addresses listed.

    Regards
