    Usually around the end of May/beginning of June. IIRC, in the last few years the announcement has been made in the last Bandsman of May.

    Only 6 months to go folks.......our excellent chairman (£5 on Sunday will do fine for that!) has got our hotel all booked, travel down Fri evening, staying over Saturday then up the road Sunday to arrive home just in time for band practice (only joking about the last bit - I hope!).

    Can I just point out that the £34 pizza was only down to one member of our band. Your comments are casting a slur over all of us other Cawston members Roger :wink:

    Caroline with you being a student its always somebody elses round! :biggrin:

    That's nothing. What about the £40 cocktail. Wasn't that a certain member of the Cawston clan too? ;):tongue:

    Should be a busy weekend as I'm wagging in the 3rd and playing in the 2nd!

    Just found out that the contest sec wants to do Harrogate and back in a day because of the finances. Don;t think he realises that its at least 3 hours from Anglesey and we are the first section on that weekend!

    Your lucky! We're having to get 20 of the band's members a whole day off school so we can leave on friday morning, and then we'll not get back home till sunday night, it'll probably take about 9/10hrs to get to Harrogate from Campbeltown!!

    Know roughly how you feel - we HAVE to travel 5 1/2 hours for the area each way! We had to do it for Torquay and then I did it the following year in Dundee!

    Aaah, Mr Scrot.... Schroeter!

    How could I forget Keith of Goodbye to Love fame, the person who managed to scare the whales off in Nova Scotia by puking all the way on the whale watching trip!

    Good to hear from you, no doubt will share a few more pints in Harrogate (not too many as I'm playing on the Sunday!)
