    You may recall that I am due to deliver some exciting news, well here it is. Paddy has gained an extension to his gambling license in order to take REAL MONEY BETS for brass band contests in the future.

    I still have a lot of work to do finalising things but I should be ready to open officially for business in a few months time.

    The grand launch of Honest Paddy’s Brass Accountants will happen at this year’s National Championship Finals, there is nowhere more appropriate than Cheltenham I’m sure you will agree and I have negotiated mutually favourable terms with Kapitol Promotions to put up a temporary betting shop in the Trade Stand Zone.

    Paddy is also delighted to welcome punters at the Albert Hall in October. This did pose a small problem at first as most of the building doesn’t hold a gambling license but thankfully the main concert hall itself does (thanks to permits being granted for a Poker Masters tournament held there recently). Unfortunately I will have to set-up my smart new electronic price stand right next to stage (so as not to disturb the adjudicators in the event of long queues of punters snaking past their tent).

    Bets can be taken there all day (including mid-performance), however whilst a band is playing we will only be able to use the ‘tic-tac’ sign language employed by the trackside bookmakers you see at the horse racing so if you want to place an ‘in-play’ bet you will need to learn tic-tac for yourself. I have included a link to a site which should help.

    Paddy still has no intention of revealing his true identity so I’m currently talking to a few celebrity operatives to man the betting shops. I hear Nick Childs might be available for the October event although I will be in competition with at least THREE bands hoping to secure him as a conductor for the day so I might need to dig deep into Paddy’s coffers.

    I would be interested in hearing your thoughts about this fantastic news for Paddy and for banding in general.
