    Hi Folks

    Once more, the tMP Band has been invited to play in an evening concert at the Pontins Brass Band Championships. This year, the band will be playing ONLY on the Saturday evening, as many people have to leave on the Sunday before the evening performance.

    We are currently holding discussions regarding the theme of this years event and further details and an announcement will be made as soon as the details are finalised.

    Could I please ask you to keep this thread solely for posting your availability for the weekend.

    *** Please check your own band's engagement diary before posting! ***


    We will soon be opening a Question and Discussion Thread to discuss and announce further information.

    Please copy and paste your details below:

    I'm sure you'll all understand that we have to make plans based upon the number of players we have available on the day. For this reason, we would be grateful if would only sign here when you can be sure you are available to play. It is very difficult to find replacement members for those who drop out at the last minute, or simply fail to turn up.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank Frank Hodges and his organising team for their help and assistance in this matter.

    Thanking you all in anticipation of the above.

    ...there might be more interest if you stated the date of Pontins this year (I might be available but I'm not playing at the contest, and Pontin's own website won't talk to me :( ), and if the "Q's & A's" thread appeared ??

    Announcement:


    Hi folks,

    Many thanks to those who have signed up for the tMP Pontins band.

    Unfortunately, due to the small number of members who have so far committed, and the time left available, a performance at Pontins would simply not be feasible.

    After much discussion, the tMP team have made the decision to cancel our performance for this year.

    Several members of the team will be in attendance for the weekend, so we look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks.

    NOOOOOOooooooo!!

    What a shame! i must admit i love to play here, its one of the reasons i go to Pontins (apart from the dressing up , the drinking and muchos merry making of course!)
    As a poster said earlier on here, would it make a difference if this thread was in a more prominent place the front page for example? i know i have logged on here, started to read posts, and completelly forgot about signing up.
    hers a post i've jsut seen on the pontins thread
    could one of the mods not make it a little more high profile for the rest of the week?
    yours hopefully.
