    This is the official tMP discussion thread for the North of England Area of the forthcoming Regional Championships of Great Britain.

    Feel free to discuss your thoughts and predictions for each section within the Area - but don't forget to enter the tMP Predictions Competition - for your chance to contribute to the overall tMP Predictions (plus a chance to win one of the first copies of 'The Mouthpiece' - the winning march composed by Darrol Barry). Please note, that any predictions posted within this thread do not contribute towards the competition. Details of the tMP Predictions Competition can be found here:

    We also ask that when the results for the various sections are announced, they are posted in this thread, and not posted as brand new threads - it has the potential to become extremely messy should this be the case. We will be creating and maintaining a complete set of results for viewing on the tMP Portal as they happen.

    As 3 bands are going through from the top section this year wouldn't be surprised if something kicked off as there at least 2 bands who'll be after this place.

    Should be a good contest all round, hope to see some people I aint seen in a while...and hope that we don't get drawn number 1!

    I'll leave the fighting out and go straight for the :guiness

    See you in the bar!!!

    Disclaimer: All claims about winning this contest are purely those of a very ambitions/deluded/drunk* Eb Bass player!!!! (*delete as applicable)

    Good luck to everyone playing this weekend.
    Look forward to maybe seeing some of you there.

    If you see a student wearing a lovely pink shirt holding a beer in or around the bar area then it'll be me. Come and say hello, don't be shy.

    Here's to a great weekend. :guiness

    I will hold you to that Chris (Many a man has regretted the offering of beer in such situations)

    See you there (pink shirt and all):eek:

    Ah - As I stagger from my pit at 10:30 on Saturday, I spare a [miniscule] thought for the poor sods already in Darlington.

    Good luck all of us!!!!! (I'm accustomising to the acoustic by playing in my [shed/bathroom/aircraft hangar]
