    Any thoughts on some of the recent player changes? Kingdom added a few new faces to their ranks , Whitburn and Kirkie with a change or three also. I hear big Andy Mclean back on solo euph at kirkie after a time away

    Sorry to be pedantic and repeat what others have posted in previous years but can we please stop referring to the contest as the Scottish REGIONAL Championships.

    The competition is The Scottish Championships. (No REGION Involved)

    Rant over!

    There - that better? I've taken the lead from the sbba web site and changed "regional" to "area".

    Region - area - same difference. There are 8 "regions" / "areas" which enter the National Championships of Great Britain - Scotland is one of them. :)

    Scotland is not, has not been , and never will be a region or an area. We are a country with our own legal and education systems and an elected Government. I write as a patriot not necessarily a Nationalist - but like Soutar, I get fed up of continual belittling of our fine land by the English-based media in general at all levels.

    Do we read references to the Norwegian Area Championships? Or the French? Or Swiss?

    Honestly chaps, no offence of slight intended. Please don't shoot me. :)

    Don't worry Di we won't shoot you.

    We'll set you free on a heather moor before hunting you down with a pack of haggis hounds. You will then be placed in the stocks at Edinburgh castle where the locals will throw damp tartan rags at you.

    Alternatively we could just get you a summer job in one of the tartan tat shops on Princes Street. Guaranteed to drive you mental. :)

    It's OK , Di - we're much more civilised up here these days, we stopped shooting tourists a few years ago..................!!!:)

    Indeed, you'd be made more than welcome in Glenrothes next month for the "Scottish", us banders are generally a friendly bunch , always delighted to see as many folks for a bit of offstage banter as can make it along!

    So you have agreed to record the contest then?

    Yep....I like it up there, even if I do have to wear double thermals :D

    Glenrothes should be quite an experience for you! New town built for miners to re-locate for work at a super-pit. It closed after 4 years because of flooding and other problems.

    Looking forward to it....if it's run anything like the Scottish Open, the SBBA should take over the world :)

    Hall's about the right size for the event. Built galleries for seating though!
  19. It's all very quiet on here - does this mean everyone is at extra rehearsals?!

    Gutted can't be there this weekend but sure it'll be a great weekend of brass as always.

    Aye, Rachael, we are all at extra rehearsals!

    A good get-together last night, with very few absent and non of those without very valid reason. Looking forward to another rehearsal tomorrow before the nice short trip down the road to Glenrothes.

    Can't be there this weekend, Rachael? Wot? Annan without the Wee Timpanist?

    Quietly confident that we can give a good account of ourselves as we sadly return to the 3rd Section - a good number of Saturday's (all home-grown) lineup played last year and have since tasted success with the Youth Band in Perth and Newtongrange, whilst two experienced players are back from overseas working as well.

    All the best to all tMP'ers over the weekend.
