    Rachel - "How much further?"

    Zuzanna - " 5 minutes"

    Rachel (15 mins later) - "How much further? I'm busting for the loo!"

    Zuzanna - "5 minutes"

    all the way from Derby to Sheffield

    Aah the amusement, especially as rachel never questioned the length of Zuzannas "5 minutes"

    Memories of NEMBBA.........

    i know silk'll be there, they've moved our skiing trip to the week later, so we can go on the sat, and not straight after NEMBBA like last year.

    Incidently... NEMBBA, not NNEMBA.

    Just a tought.
    In the Mineworkers Contest programme at Skeggy it said that the contest is open to NEMBBA Bands only !
  11. i think to play at assoc contests all you have to do is pay a fee to the relevant assoc. years ago when i played for newstead we joined the bradford brass band assoc and went to bradford and won.

    Date Change:

    We have been notified that the NEMBBA contest has been changed from 1st Feb to 15th Feb.
  15. :( :( :( :( :( :( :(
    Unfortunately it looks like Silk won't be going if they are changing the date as half the players are flying back from a skiing trip in Austria on that day. It's a pity they wont be there to defend their title, but good luck to all competitors who are going.
