    I am MD of the Flixton Band in Manchester. (Manchester's most Friendly band) We are going to the Fleetwood contest on Sun the 5th October and playing Purcell Var. We are short of a BBb Tuba and Perc for the contest and we can borrow from 2nd section bands and below.
    Any Bass or Percussion players fancy a trip to the seaside? Fleetwood has the highest rate of teenage pregnacy in the UK so must be a fun place-right!

    Wahey Ewan has finally made a post! Fleetwood is going to be a great day. I can promise that if you come along with Flixton you will have a fantastic time and I might even buy you a drink!

    Sparky invited me to come up for the Fleetwood Contest but unfortunately I am already booked up - however I will hold you to that drink you've promised Rach!!

    Flixton band have been going to Fleetwood for years, (although there is no connection between this and the final sentence in Ewan's message). I musit add however, that the mothers' in Fleetwood were teenagers once!

    I've spoken to sparkly about this and having concluded that my BBb playing isn't up to contest standard by any stretch of the imagination, I might have to come as Flixton Fanclub instead, cos Leisa's gonna buy me a drink if i do!!
