Following on from the recent story regarding Roger Webster's episode with the super glue, I thought I'd ask if any other bands / players have had last minute panics or mini disasters before a contest? Woodfalls at Yeovil contest a couple of years ago is a prime example. Everything was going fairly well (for us anyway) until we got to the Octagon theatre. We then discovered that our flugel horn player had mistakenly left her music in the rehearsal room in Sherborne (about 30 mins away). Having rushed back to Sherborne to retrive the music, one of our BBb bass players then realised that he couldn't find his bass!! He'd also left it in Sherborne. Unfortunately, we couldn't get in touch with Chantel to tell her to pick up the bass as well and so we had to borrow an instrument from Bournemouth Concert Brass! Our flugel player arrived with literally seconds left before we went on stage, complete with music. Not the best preparation really but keeps life interesting!
