    Well I have heard that Chivilrey is now the Abergavenny National Anthem (lol). How many times have you played the piece in the last 2 years?
  8. lol in the last 2 years we have performed it 2 many times i think at least 4. Im a huge fan of the piece, just need a few weeks of prepearation and im sure we will repeat our performance for Weston Super Mare 2005 (Which was a win!!)

    looking forward to treorchy this year I love playing at the P&D it will be a close one for the section crown this year i think there is only a 2 point diff between us and markham.

    also looking forward to the customary pie and chips prior to stage.

    Don't forget Pontardulias and RAF St Athan in the First Section!! Sure there's a few more in the Second Section but my memory fails me at the moment...will have a think!!

    Unfortunately for the first time in about 14 years I won't be at Treorchy....I will be skulking in Devon playing a concert for my new band in Budleigh Salterton, a world away fom Treorchy!! Anyway all the best to my old band Rogerstone and also to Newbridge.....make sure you leave the Welsh First Section in fine style by coming 2nd to Rogy!!!;);):rolleyes::rolleyes::biggrin:

    Good luck to all competing bands too, I am sure it will be a freezing day and don't forget to count the Chrismas lights on your way back down the valley!!

    Good luck to all bands competing in Treorchy this year. I have played there many times as some may know.

    Good luck especially to Mike Davies and all the players at Newport Band.
