    I've decided it's time to forget about that unpleasantness in 1812 and introduce myself: Jim Hatfield, Glen Ellyn, IL, just west of the much better known community of Chicago, home of the Cubs, White Sox and Chicago Brass Band.

    I've no hope of making the first two lineups but I've been subbing enthusiastically with the latter and here I am at 5 AM pounding away on Charlier #1 in an effort to one day gain full membership.

    I've also just put a deposit down on a new Eclipse Bb cornet. I know it's the Indian, not the arrow, but from what I've heard about Leigh McKinney's work, a better arrow does make a difference.

    Oh, oh, my timer says it's time to quit posting and get back to Charlier.

    Stay thirsty, my friends!

    Hi, Jim, and welcome to tMP!

    We'll look foward to reading your contributions as you find your way around, just as we in the Salvation Army are looking forward to the visit of the Chicago Staff Band next year ;)

    Thanks, Peter! The CSB is a great band. I'm sure you'll enjoy hearing them.
