Hi all, who will be joining Lanner and District at November Torquay this year?
City of Bristol will be there in the 2nd section
Chalford Band 1st Section
Porthleven Town will be there in the fourth
Michelmersh Silver Band will be there in the 1st Section.
Unfortunately not Weston Brass as we have availability problems that day. We will though be defending our 3rd section Leicestershire BBA title on 28 Nov.
I know Mount charles youth band will be there... Since im playing with them and Lanner
Sidmouth will be making up the numbers in the third section!
Camborne"B" will not be going,lot of players away leading up to and a busy concert programme. Good luck to all competeing bands
Torbay Brass Band will be there and at the GBBA contest 21/11/10. Not bad considering we nearly folded 18 months ago!
aha! Matt Rowe lol
Totnes Trainers will be there as well
Any official word on the FULL line-up anyone? It's less than a fortnight away so surely it's been published somewhere (the league are champing at the bit)
There's a Press Release on the SWBBA website claiming 33 bands, but none mentioned
Same hopeless lack of info from the SWBBA,you would think they could publish a confirmed line up by now!!! Adjudicators are Dennis Wilby and Derek Greenwood
I've taken the unusual step of contacting the organisers directly, watch this space (hopefully)
I'll be there - making up the numbers in the audience for a change!
We'll be there in top top section!
Any prices yet Paddy?
I have had a reply from SWBBA this afternoon...
Thank you for the email. I have spoken to the Association Officers regarding your general betting system on brass band contests and I am instructed to inform you the South West Brass Band Association does not wish to be associated and your request for the section line-up at our forthcoming Championships is rejected.
I think (and hope) this is just an unfortunate misunderstanding, I have replied re-assuring them that Paddy doesn't take ACTUAL bets in the form of cash and that the league is just a bit of fun. So i'm hopeful they will re-consider. No reply yet but i'll keep you informed
It's this sort of stuffed shirted nonsense that gives contesting committees a bad name.
Scaba Media? YRBBC? and many other contest officials I'm sure are on tMP and i've never seen any of them react to Paddy's stuff like this
Shame on you SWBBA
