    Following on from the invitation . . . .

    . . . . we are looking for tMPer's to join us again at the Easingwold March Contest.

    For those of you who have played in previous years, Easingwold March and Deportment Contest needs no introduction . . . . it's a fantastic night out!
    For the uninitiated . . . it is, in style, a one-off Whit Friday Contest. 20 or so bands converge on this small North Yorkshire market town and make the evening their own. Each band does a circuit of the market place (where they are marked on deportment), before performing a contest march on the stage.
    tMP have again been given the prestigious task of opening the evening. There are no restraints on player numbers for this band, so, all who wish to play can. In fact, the bigger band we put out, the better for tMP.
    Don't be shy or nervous about coming forward. We are not looking to field a Championship band. Being a part of the banding community is what tMP is all about. So everyone who can make it is very welcome.

    The itinerary is likely to be . . .
    Midday – onwards - Meet at The George Hotel in the market place.
    5.00 p.m. - Quick rehearsal in nearby Car Park.
    6.00 p.m. - Begin the festivities. (This time is now confirmed)
    6.10 – till late - tMP Social gathering at the numerous pubs around the market place!​
    This years Contest is on Saturday, 24th June, 2006

    If you are available (please check you diaries first) copy and paste the following in this thread, adding in your own personal details.

    I think this might be the first one i've missed! I can't make it this year as I only finish uni on the friday and I'm going to a cricket picnic on the sunday for my friend's 30th. I'm sad :frown:....there was going to be wine and steak at Easingwold this year too...

    Enjoy the day, sorry to post in the sign up thread, but I felt sad!

    Can we get a little more confirmation of times? Our band now has a job on until 3 but we can be at Easingwold by 4.30. According to P Sanderson the contest doesn't start till 6 so this would give us plenty of time but Roger has us down as rehearsing 3.30 and playing at 4.30 in which case I'd be cutting it fine

    Edit: As Peter Sanderson (Contest Controller) has now confirmed the times I've edited the original post with the correct times.

    Here they are again:

    The itinerary is likely to be . . .
    Midday – onwards - Meet at The George Hotel in the market place.
    5.00 p.m. - Quick rehearsal in nearby Car Park.
    6.00 p.m. - Begin the festivities.
    6.10 – till late - tMP Social gathering at the numerous pubs around the market place!
