    Hi Colin,

    Have emailed you my mobile number. My understanding is we were now entered, I thought we had sent the forms off.

    Give me a call if you need, or if there are any problems.

    It was a great night last night, and well done to Crofton and to Gawthorpe '85.

    Great to see such a packed room (even if it was a touch warm!!!!!) and a very appreciative and friendly audience.

    Thank you for giving us the chance to take part, and I hope we have the opportunity to come back again soon.

    Just out of interest what were the programmes played ? I guess Tom Wellings played ' Minnie the Moocher ' ?

    Hi Mark,

    Some you may recognise from when you played with us

    At the sign of the swinging cymbal
    Cross of Honour
    Hine e Hine
    Minnie the Moocher
    Mid all the traffic
    Conquest of Paradise

    It was a good evening, well run friendly event could definitely recommend it to any other bands or just to go along for a good evenings entertainment. Didn't hear gawthorpe but I thought Deepcar played a good choice of pieces.
