    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

    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 :)

    wahooooooooooo half term starts monday 20th feb!! :cool: 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

    Whitwell haven't been to this contest for a few years. Can anyone remind me:
    1. Do the sections follow each other?
    2. When are the results announced?
    3. Has(Have) the name(s) of the adjudicator(s) been announced yet?
    Thanks in advance.

    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.
