    Sorry to keep you all waiting, but I was on a different "mission" yesterday (to give you a hint: it involved lot's of :guiness) Anyway: finally, here it is: my 1000th post!!!! :biggrin:


    I remember discovering tMP in May of this year. I was already active on some Belgian brass-related forums (inclusing a forum that I set up myself on my band's website). It was on the "Belgian Brass Band Forum" that someone mentioned, so I immediately came over and registered myself. Some friends of mine who play in de "Noord-Limburgse Brass Band" had just returned from the Crawley Contest, were they had been very succesfull, so I made my first post in the thread discussing this event.

    Shortly after that, BOC Brother started and that's when i really started to get "addicted": sneakily reading the posts at work, staying up longer just to check if there was another post in some thread, etc. Gradually I started to post more and more in the Random forum (Tune Association, Person Before, ...) but I also enjoyed the more "serious" discussions in the Rehearsel Room and the Adjudicators Comments. it's a great way for "foreign" brass band lovers to keep informed about what's going on in the British Brass Banding World, which of course still is the example for all brass bands all over the world. I also hope my contributions to these dicussions have been interesting for you (especially as some sort of "unbiased, outside view", or at least that's what I tried...)

    Anyway, it has been great getting to know so much new, interesting people from all over the world. Currently my MSN list is almost half made up of tMP people... I'm now really looking forward to going to the UK sometime, just to meet some of all these terific people. Also when you're ever coming over to Belgium (with or without band), feel free to contact me and see if we can make an arrangement to meet each other (maybe next year fot the Kerkrade contests?)

    And now on to my 2000th post...


    (and thanks for tolerating my dubious English...)
