    If your band as practice on Tuesdays&Thursdays will your band be cancelling band practice so those who want to see the England Games can do so or just except that you might get a POOR TURN OUT .

    I think we'll still have a full band, but there will be someone, somewhere keeping tabs on the score. :rolleyes:

    I'm hoping football wouldn't get in the way of band with us, but luckily we rehearse mondays and wednesdays anyway.

    Manx_Yessir missed big FA Cup and Champions League Liverpool games to come to rehearsals i seem to remember and myself and Cornet King missed Towns playoff games at the end of last season for rehearsals.

    The band should come before footie (unless absolutely everyone wants to watch it!!)

    I really do not want to miss any of the England games, but then as the band have a few important things coming up, how can i miss band rehearsals aswell?!?!?
    Don't think poor attendance will be a problem, as half of our players aren't really that interested in England, and as i virtually never miss rehearsals for any reason, i think i should be allowed.
    If we get through the group stages, then it becomes a real problem!!

    Excellent work by our band secretary for this coming saturday 10th June

    The event Marlow Regatta is on all day 11.30am - 11.00pm

    The bandstand is shared with a Jazz Orchestra 1.00pm - 5.30pm alternating

    The band secretary saw the situation early and booked our slots:-

    1.00pm - 2.00pm

    4.00pm - 5.30pm

    Big screen being erected we understand so excellent work allround

    a band of about 30 kids, and they all turned up bar 1 or 2 who had exam revision for an exam the next day or summin, now THATS commitment ;)
