    So, any tMPers going?

    I'll be there supporting the youngsters (and the slightly older ones) from Deiniolen, including my son Deian (6 and a half) who's competing in the Slow Melody under 10 and the Air Varie under 14. I'm also one of the four amigos in Deiniolen's quartet.

    I was there listening, not playing! Very impressed with the talent there is in the bands of North Wales. A huge well done to Nicholas Hughes who won the Open slow melody and Air Varie and also well done to Graham Bushell who was awesome on sop. A massive well done to all the Menai Bridge contenders and of course the star of the show Deian!!!! Well done all!!!

    Association's special award: Deian Wyn Williams for his performance in the Air Varie under 14

    Huge congratulations to everyone - was an excellent day, and Deian made his Dad extremely proud (once again) - just a little over 12 months since starting playing the cornet - and he's not getting his 7th birthday till the end of April.

    A star of the day for me was Gwyn Owen of Porthaethwy in the Air Varie under 14 - an exellent performance that made a joke of his age - and a star of the future to look out for in my eyes.

    When i was warming up, i couldn't believe it was him in the same room!! But there was only me or him, and i knew i didn't sound like that!!! Amazing talent and he really is going to go far.

    Congratulations to everyone yesterday, and especially to the 2 cornet players from Northop for getting in the prizes. Was really pleased for them :biggrin:

    I'd like to echo Karls congratulations and give a special thank you for the Big Band set at the end. The Galeri is an excellent, modern venue;ideal for young competitors to show off their talents to the very appreciative and supportive audience that were there. Nice one, everyone and the NWBBA too.
