    A great evening was had by all.
    That is the comment heard most often after the contest (even though some bands had not returned trophies).
    tMP.com Brass got the evening off to a great start, (thnks Sud for organising everything). Do you want to come again next year?

    I went down and listened to a few bands. I heard the mouthpiece band and thought you sounded really good.

    Well done tMP Brass. Thanks to all concerned for making organising it easy and a pleasure. Apart from the odd last minute glitch (Well done the two Craigs for bravely stepping into the breeches and Stewart, the baritrombist.) everything went to plan. Here are the remarks from adjudicator David Horsfield:-

    "Secure opening with tight ensemble. Tasteful cornet soloist and the tempo flows quite well. Rather frantic at times in tutti cornets. Again cornet plays with style and the march is quite musical. Only the occasional blemish, but nothing too serious. Good balance between basses and trombones. Rather loose towards the final section before D.C. Impressive here, better than first time around. A difficult march played at a good tempo; this march needs a slightly steadier tempo than the other marches. Only an occasional tuning lapse detracts.
    Thank You,
    D.W. Horsfield.

    For ten minutes rehearsal, that has got to be a good effort.
    Well done everybody. We have been officially invited back next year, don't all volunteer now, but keep the last weekend in June free.

    shame I didn't get to play with yous. even though you sounded great.

    I think that Mr. Thorne did an excellent job in the boom titty boom section.

    I've always said a band is only as good as the bass drum player. :?

    But surely, if the bass drum player's doing his job properly, you can't hear the band anyway :wink: :wink: :lol: :lol: :lol:
