    Is there any info about Leicester contest in Nov yet? I know the date and place, but that's about it. Either the association doesn't have a web site or I'm too blonde to find it....

    Does anyone out there know how many bands are in each section (Open and 1-4 I think), who they are and who's in the box?

    cheers :?

    We'll be making the trip for this one, 2nd Section, looking forward to it since we have had a "lean" year for contests and haven't had one since the areas.

    Is the rumours about no bar true?, if so wheres the nearest pub :D

    I'm sure there was a bar there last time I went, but it was a few years ago.

    Having spoken to a couple of folks who did it last year (I think) there is No bar :dunno but hopefully there'll be a pub nearby.

    Anyone else going?

    Ah yes guthlaxton - I remember that place when I played in leicestershire school of music many moons ago!!

    They have the facility to have a bar (no pumps though if I remember correctly) whether it is used or not is a different matter!!

    By the way seedhouse last time I checked the legal age limit for drinking was 18 :wink: :wink: :lol: and if I remember corectly you were in my year 11 chemistry class last year!!!!

    I on the other hand will be drinking :guiness :bounce

    We're in Second section, I believe that Regent Brass from London are in the Open section. Other than that, not a clue.

    Anyway, if you wanted to say hello to me you could have done when I came down to pick up the drum on Wednesday! I was the big blonde gobby one! :twisted: :twisted:

    Should be there but not getting drunk :cry: I have a band practice that evening!
