    Hi All

    Just wanted to introduce myself, being new to tmp and all!

    I play cornet for Boroondara Brass (www.boroondarabrass.org) in Melbourne, Australia. Been playing cornet for about 11 years or so and still love it!

    I'm a hard core brass band nerd (hence joining this forum!), and proud of it!

    Hello to all you other brass band nerds out there. I look forward to getting to know some of you on this site.

    Just don't mention the cricket! Anything better than a white wash will be a good result for England.

    I don't do cricket! I tend to tune out when the ashes are on. But I am patriotic so GO AUSSIES!!!!! :clap:

    Well, she's one up on me. I tune out sports, and I am not that patriotic when it comes to sport. Welcome to the big leagues, it's a bit different to Spitty, eh?

    Thought I'd say hi as I'm one of the few people who's online at the same time as you, but at least it's sensible o'clock where you are, not ungodly am as it is here!!

    Should explain I'm on nightshift in the Coronary Care unit of the main referral hospital for Scotland and thanks to the skills of the team all of the patients are asleep and all the random jobs are done for a wee while, so am doing random stuff of my own!!!

    Nice to join hands across the world! Tootle loud enough and we might hear you!!!
