    What's a "soock"?

    I forgot, I didn't get my new trombone registered within the month deadline either.

    An Arabic market, but where he wears it I don't want to know!! Although that might explain the exotic, spicy aroma.

    A soock is a sock with a hole in it! ;)

    BTW Note to all other 1st sections bands we at Cawston knew about Ian's new trombone. It was specially imported and modified so that he did not sound Chisolmesque.

    As I say we knew but Ipswich used their vast sponsorship to bribe us to keep quiet.

    I did hear a rumour that one band ( in a flagrant contravention of the rules ) played STRAIGHT ties :eek::eek:

    I also understand that some bands were allowed to get away with playing the right notes too!

    Disgraceful!

    Oh, the ignominy of it. Can't see anyone admitting to that!

    STRAIGHT TIES AT A CONTEST!!!!! Unreal.

    Word has come to me though of a major breach of rules. It appears some people actually accepted the placing given to them by the adjudicator. How did that happen without incident on the day?

    Oh, come on now, Ian - this thread is full of back-biting, bitching, whingeing and complaints of every imaginable kind. Why can't we follow the example of some of the other Areas and just accept everything quietly.

    Oh, for the gallery! The evidence from Hadleigh 2005 would verify the danger mooted!

    Yeah, but that just doesn't tell the story! You nearly blinded FlugelGal at Hadleigh when she walked round a corner and was surprised the hue.
