    Another new thread from the 2009 winner of the tMP "Impact Award" (I was disgusted, I only found out today 2 weeks after polling closed, I could've voted for myself) - Thanks to all those who voted for me though

    Novelty combination bets.
    I'll start off with a few and I welcome suggestions for others, the only rule is that they must have a good 'play on words' title...

    The car's the star
    Reg Vardy & Leyland (not counting Fodens) to win their areas
    11/8

    Make MINE a double - (ja see what I did there?)
    "Colliery" bands to win Midlands (Desford, Thoresby or Gresley) & Yorkshire (Grimey, Frickley or Hatfield - not counting Dyke or Rothwell) Areas
    4/1

    By Royal Appointment
    KINGDOM Brass, SOVEREIGN Brass & Mount CHARLES to win their areas
    3500/1

    can't think of any others, unless of course EVERY Silver band is a prize band and they've all just decided to drop it from the their name, that would be quite a few then

    Quite a combination, a bit to complicated. But I'm happy to go with a band or conductor with mention of weather in the name...

    We need a list...

    Brunel Brass (John Winter - flood) - should count double
    Thundersley Brass
    Cold Ash Brass
    Snowdown Colliery
    Rushden Windmill
    Rainford Silver
    Storm Brass - not sure of a price yet thou
    Wetherby & District - pushing it a bit with the spelling

    Any more suggestions? (the more tenuous the better I think).

    Oh Sun Life, where are you when we need you. RIP

    Aren't Marsden a 'silver prize' band as well or have they dropped it?

    (Or did the crazy BB player just imagine it....)
