    Ah, NEMBBA many happy memories. One year after a particularly early draw I was first into the bar and last out.... I think that was the same year that Sparkly believed when, desperate for the loo, she kept asking how much further and we kept saying "5 minutes", for about 40 miles! And she never once questioned us!

    The 2nd section field looks very interesting. On current form the 3 midlands bands are very evenly matched at the top of the midlands area and the 2 Yorkshire bands look equally strong - one just coming down from the 1st section and one near the top of their region.
    Throw in the fiendishly difficult Images of the Millenium and its going to be one hell of a scrap.

    Should be very good experience for the areas.

    We thought about entering the 1st section, but we've got too many people away on holiday this week with it being schools 1/2 term.

    I remember playing at NEMBBA with Nottingham City Transport - I think it was in Dronfield Leisure Centre - when we were the only band in the top section.

    I can add to this although our band will not be there i will be going myself to support the contest and do a bit of my own placings
    So if you are going come over and see me will have Warwickshire County Cricket Club Blue Fleece Top on and either Gresley Black Polo Shirt or LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB tshirt on.
    I promise i will not sit on the front row;)
    So come over and introduce yourself, and say hello and see if what in think of your performance, so seee you all there folks.
    Just ask Postie, Di, Vickitorious who i am.
    I'm sure they will point you in the direction:tup :clap:

    Yes I will certainly help in pointing to where he is sitting. Not shy in putting down what he thinks, is Ian. You are certainly going to get a very good unbiased view.

    The Wakefield Metropolitan band have had to drop out of the contest due to unforeseen circumstances. One of our percussionists is unable to make Sundays contest. However a few members of the band will be coming along to support Crofton Silver Band in the 4th section. We will also watch the bands in the 2nd section if still standing!

    COME ON THE CROFTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
