    Apologies - there is a new item on the news page. Interesting to read about Ivor

    Date last amended hasn't been altered on main page though.

    I'm quite missing the band and the pub quiz after practice so might pop down to a rehearsal soon.

  14. hey ian, have u been able 2 find a new md yet?, with so many people looking 2 conduct bands these days i would have thought u would have had at least some interest, i would have been but i would prolly get a tellin off from my band who i play trombone with and your a bit 2 far away as i dont own my own transport, do u have any players from the west part of yorkshire?

    We have one or two applications for conductor which we are considering - just a case now of finding the one which is most compatible with the band I think. We don't have any regular players from West York yet, I think most can find bands locally to suit their needs. However, if anyone wants to come along they would be most welcome - it seems that, in this area, there are more bands than players...

    A great bunch!

    Hey Ian, long time no see. Sad to see O'bridge going through this patch. You lot were always a great bunch to be around, shame i had no option but to leave. Anyone coming along will no doubt feel very welcome within 5 mins of stepping in the bandroom (nudge-nudge hint-hint - get yourself down there if you aint got a band!). As you aren't looking for a soprano player, it'll still be a while before i drop down again to play (unless Jack goes on holiday!).

    Thanks James but who said we aren't looking for a sop - in fact that is one of the positions we are most anxious to fill on a permanent basis along with a couple of tutti cornets, solo euph and 2nd Eb bass.
  18. Oughtibridge Band requires players
