Which bands are going this year?
Wakefield Metropolitan are going in the 2nd section.
Hathern will be there in the first section.
Bestwood will be there in the 4th section.
Whitwell in the third section.
Dronfield in the 4th
Carlton Brass will be making a hash of Images in the Second Section.
Should be interesting to see how each band copes with it. I think Blidworth are also going.
what is the exact date of this? is it half term? well the sunday before- here's hoping. I wanted to come for a listen but the drive back north afterwards sort of puts me off! now if it was half term I could stay at my mum's and get a lift from the bestwood lot and soak up the atmostphere (booze) :tup
What is the NEMBBA contest please?
It's the North East Midlands Brass Band Association pre-area contest where we all get the area piece out for an early run-out. We've found it very useful to play here as it gives us an idea where we're going wrong with it.
It's at the Rolls Royce Social club on Feb 19th
*edit* oh and we usually get a few visitors from other associations too. Silk Brass have been before and it's nice to see that Wakefield Met are coming down this time too
Mmm soak up the atmostphere really!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wahooooooooooo half term starts monday 20th feb!! Postie I would like to reserve a lift please :tongue:
It is a shame really that the numbers have been down really on this contest really- it's not really a poor contest. I can't remember the acoustics being awful (but haven't played there for a number of years) and the bar is cheap and cheap food as well. Anyone wanting to give the area piece a run out should think about attending :tup
Thank you rutty
Please can i ask another question?
I thought you would say yes so here go's:
Is the pre-area rehearsal for the Midlands contest in March?
I have just noticed something - I joined tmp 1 year this valentines day
Whitwell haven't been to this contest for a few years. Can anyone remind me:
Do the sections follow each other?
When are the results announced?
Has(Have) the name(s) of the adjudicator(s) been announced yet?
Thanks in advance.
Long Eaton will be there in the third section
I can answer two of your questions:
1. Yes the sections do follow each other.
2. At the end of the contest I.E. after the completion of the 1st section.
3. Havent heard yet.
Tideswell will be there in the 4th section.
is anyone competing against hathern in the first section this year?
Stannington were considering it, but have decided not to go and to concentrate on getting it right for Bradford. I'd heard that Chapeltown, Barnsley Building Society and Riddings might be going, but I'm not sure on either front.
Matlock will be competing in the 3rd Section
Once again Gresley will not be going to the contest , it does us no good at all always builds our hopes up and then at the Area
