    Hi Folks,

    The tMP team have again decided to field a band at the forthcoming Whit Friday March Contest on 16th MAY, 2008.

    As usual we would ask members to volunteer their services in the normal way, but to secure your ‘seat’ on the coach we will urgently require your payment of £15.
    (See Payment details below)

    Before you post your details could you please check to see that you are actually free to take part!

    Please copy and paste the following information.

    Could you please keep this thread solely for 'registration' purposes only.

    We will again be using the Swallow Bower Hotel for our rehearsal and at present the hotel has rooms available, if you wish to stop over. In order to book your accommodation follow link below:

    If you have any questions regarding this event please post in the Questions/Discussion thread here: Questions/Discussion


    Payment Details: Please take time to read the following conditions and note that Payments will be accepted as from today.

    To Take Part:

    • Only registered members of theMouthPiece.com can play in the tMP.com Band.

    • Although the main ingredient of this event is to have fun and enjoy, we will however be looking to improve on our previous results, so the contest performance will be taken very seriously.

    • Under 18’s attending without their parents must send written permission signed by their parents or guardians to me, at the address below by May 5th. (The MouthPiece.com cannot be held responsible for the safety of minors)

    • We request that all Players and Guests contribute £15 per person towards the cost of hiring the coach to transport the band for the duration of the evening. This needs to be paid ASAP and in any case before April 30th. Methods of payment are detailed below.

    • There are a maximum of 48 coach seats available which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis (within the constraints of a balanced band). Non-players and supporters are more than welcome to attend but seat allocation on the coach will, in the first instance, go to playing members.

    Online payment:
    https://www.paypal.com/

    Send online payment via Paypal to: 'rogerthorne@thornesmusic.freeserve.co.uk' (without quotes)

    Payment by Cheque:
    Please make cheques payable to 'Roger Thorne' and send to:

    theMouthPiece.com, c/o Roger Thorne, 18 Sundorne Crescent, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY1 4JE.

    Anymore for anymore!!!

    Time is running out folks, so if you are interested in playing with tMP Band please post your name in this thread and also send your payment to me.

    We've had to cancel engagements before due to the apparent lack of interest, only to find the interest was abundant once the plug had been pulled.

    Due to the logistics involved in oganising this event we will have to make a decision either way by this Friday (12th).

    Many thanks,

    ;)
