    Think we should say a big thank you and well done to John and Roger for their efforts yesterday at the RAH promoting tMP, and to John for buying all the cool notepads!! I now have something to write on tomorrow at work. Cheers guys!

    Cheers Stephen... but the thanks should really go to Jon Handley of RJ Handley and Tor Designs. It was he, as Secretary of the Association of Brass Band Traders who invited tMP to be there and I am very grateful to him for the invitation. I am also very grateful to our very own Roger - he travelled all the way from Shrewsbury to attend after leaving home ridicululously early enough to get to RAH bu 8:30 (but don't tell the cops eh!! ;))

    To be honest, trade show / competition attendance is something tMP is going to be doing far more often. It was simply a fantastic opportunity to meet many, many people. We met many tMP'ers and many people who were not aware of us :( (shock horror eh!), and it was a great opportunity to spread the word of what tMP is and can offer.

    My biggest regret is not attending the National Finals event in Harrogate - that would have been excellent - anyway - lesson learned for next year eh!

    Thanks to everyone who came up to us and said hi, amongst many others who I just can't remember right now (tell me if I have missed you), we saw HBB, Dinie, Vickietorious, MRSH, Aadvark, Sam Atherton, BBCBari, Philip Sparke, Naruco, Steve Clapton, Highams, Tuba Miriam et al..... (sorry if your name isn't here)

    All in all we had a great day, tMP is here to stay folks.... :) thanks for your support.

    John, how could you! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

    We were there for, like, hooooours. But maybe Vicki's looniness and my jabbering is something you would rather block from your memory! :lol: :lol: :rolleyes:

    Those little note pads were great! Although most of mine is gone already. :-( One chap asked if we'd got a pen to rewrite a phone number he'd written on his hand, so Vic gave him a pen and I gave him a tMP sheet of paper to write on. He was with a few of his (and Vics) mates from NYBB, so I tore them all off a strip! (Yea, in both ways, gave em a sheet of paper and told em sign up or else!;) )

    Thank you Ben, much appreciated.

    Can I also send my thanks to all tMPer's who took time out to visit our Trade Stand yesterday. It was fantastic to meet you all and put faces to names. Hopefully we will be visiting other contests in various parts of the country (and Europe!) in the near future to promote the wonderful world of

    I would also like to reiterate John's thanks to Roger and Jon Handley of RJ Handley and Tor Designs for making it all possible.

    Thank you all for your continued support.
