    Further to our previous request for guest players for our Holland 2004 trip we have 4 spaces left on the coach. The last thread had over 1300 views and secured 3 guest players for the tour.

    We are staying for 4 nights at Haarlem and 4 at Arnhem, cost includes all transport, accommodation and food on a breakfast only basis.

    We would be keen to hear from a kit player and other percussionist plus front row cornets. The cost is £260-£290 and we have the following programme

    Sat 21/08 6.00am leave Sheffield for Harwich ferry to Hook of Holland
    Sun 22/08 Playing at Six Flags theme park am - rest of day in park
    Mon 23/08 Dam Square Amsterdam - mid day concert
    Tue 24/08 Haarlem town centre - mid day concert
    Wed 25/08 Hook of Holland
    Thu 26/08 - National War & Resistance Museum
    Fri 27/08 - Maastricht Food & Drink Festival
    Sat 28/08 - Arnhem - mid day concert
    Sun 29/08 - Return to UK

    Please pm me if you are interested - we would need a £100 deposit payment to secure a place and it is strictly on a first come first pay gets the places.

    We have a number of tMPers coming already and of those that have been with us before I am sure they can all vouch for an excellent weeks tour.

    Hi Tubafran

    Enjoyed your rehearsal last night, and meeting people in the pub after :D

    Wish I was coming on your trip but I think 7 tubas would be a bit too excessive :wink:

    One down

    OK Daniel but don't forget to do some falling over practice too.

    Nick good news it would be great if Rosie, can come so now there are only 3 places left to fill the tour bus.

    Any more cornet players or kit players interested in an excellent tour with a great bunch of banders? Playing will be limted to 2 to 3 hours per day then its Grolsh, Grolsh and more Grolsh. If you don't drink of course that's no problem as there will also be plenty of time for sight-seeing etc.

    Holland Trip - Latest

    Thanks to Well Worth It for confirming that he's coming - so we are OK on kit now. Still have room for some more cornets. Anyone else out there interested in weeks playing in Holland with a super bunch of bandsman and woman?

    What can I say?
    The lure of Grolsh, Good Guys and Garry from Emley was just too strong.

    Cornets for Holland

    That's the drummer sorted. Garry can you work your charms on some cornet players - 2nd Man Down's got to be up for this - what do we have to do to fill that bus? Free beer? loose woman? loose men? we are open to suggestions.

    Re: Holland Trip

    Is there really a place called Six Flags? Doesn't sound very Dutch to me.

    Why no Dronfield-style stopping somewhere on the journey to play a concert :?: :wink:

    Six Flags - Big theme park in Holland... much fun! There's a big roller coaster there that I forgot the name of, but on the pictures afterwards the guy in cart behind us had his head over his shoulder and the next 4 pictures showed people covered in vomit... classy!

    One more reason to remember...Don't drink until AFTER you have been on all the coasters.
