Just for the record...The North American Championships are this coming weekend, in Little Rock Arkansas. Championship section test piece is Peter Graham's Montage. Only 5 bands competing in Championship this year (guess we have a lock on a better finish than last year's 6th place :wink: ) Grimethorpe is (are?) the Gala Concert entertainment and the Stavanger Band are coming from Norway to compete in Championship section, then a whirl-wind tour (including an Iowa concert sponsored by your's truly's band.) Good luck to any fellow Nabba-ites who might be lurking about. That's the news from across the pond for this week.
