Anyone know the date of Holmfirth Contest 2008?
its usually the end of may/early june
not much help am I?
No, because up until last year, it was traditionally at the end of April.
A bit dis organised.. turned up in 2002, and Holmfirth civic hall was locked up, we had to bang on the door to get in. I went on the stage to collect the Jim Battye cup for best bass section at the awards, and the trophy had not been returned from the previous year, the organisers had no idea where it was, The contest could be at any time from April 27 th to june.
I heard they were planning for late April. Because that meant Alan at Pogson Bray Trust aimed for 6th April to avoid any clashes!
2006 it was 21st May
Yes it was, cos I was there.
Sunday, 8th June 2008.
I hope they have now found the Battye cup. You must have been devastated! Not many of us have won the Battye title have they.
Yes me and Dan Grimes managed to trace it, someone was using it as a doorstop,after a few threats it was returned to its rightful place with king battye and the Holme Silver basses.:clap:
