    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.

    Well, the EIBB didn't fair so well in competition. We finished 5th (in a field of 5 in Championship division.

    As expected Stavnager, under David King's direction, won Championship divison. Brass Band of Central Florida took second.

    I'll post a complete set of results soon.
