    Of course Weenie your famous now, being on points west, good luck on finding a permenant bandroom.
    Are you going to go on stage as Elvis at Torquay?, a very fetching outfit at my Nieces party, check out Chalfords website for the picture!.

    Elvis you kept that quite weenie!!!
  3. Looking forward to the day out!! How is everyone getting on preparing?? we have had two fatalities within our ranks! One member ended up half way down a cliff after doing a charity skydive with me and the other one has broke his arm somehow!! they are both making a swift recovery though! Really enjoying the test piece, very tricky this year it takes a very quality band to pull this one off! Ball at his best.

    Well folks, it's the final week of rehearsals and Torquay is drawing nearer.
    Starting to get quite excited about it all.

    Good luck to all the bands competeing especially our fellow GBBA members.

    I don't know what you are getting so excited about Matt - anyone would think that you were getting nervous about all those people watching you wave the stick.

    Best of luck to Cheltenham for Saturday - shame I won't be there to see it.

    Matt - Of course it gets easier - about 5.00 O Clock Saturday afternoon.

    Come on people this thread is a little quiet!! Who's confident? Who's enoying the test piece? Who thinks it's all coming together? Who wants to cry? Let your feelings be known!!

    I am pleased with the way we are playing. I think the First Section is probably going to be the most competitive of the day - but I may be a bit biased!! Would actually have loved to have played Festival Music but old Jimmy Cook is chucking out a few problems!!

    All the best to all bands for next weekend - it is sure to be a great contest. I am looK forward to seeing you in the bar afterwards! Please come and say hello as otherwise I may be a lonely Welshman!!
  18. Im trying to get my confidence up for it! been shoved on to Flugel a week before the area! although me and the rest of my band are loving Festival Music! Frank Renton is hot on his heels for this one so should be a good weeks practice! although I still want to cry! want to be back on Cornet!

    Piece is sounding pretty good, but we've had the usual problems before a contest. Two players down, with some reshuffling in the band to fill the gaps. Tonight should show if the sectionals have paid off.
    Will be glad to put the four cheese symphony back in the cupboard where long may it rest - we had a blast through Dark Side of Moon and the band sight-read it very well - wouldn't mind sneaking onto the third section stage and playing it.
    Can't say that I'm impressed with the organisation deciding not to relegate any bands out of the third section this year, when four years ago we were demoted with 5 other bands because three were on equal points and two were rule N. After 4 gruelling years in the fourth section it doesn't seem fair - why not promote three or four bands last year? Can't take another year of it :mad: down hear - anyone gotta ladder?
