    Here's the place for all the funny Whit Friday anecdotes...

    looking forward to hearing some of these...

    Did any other bands have a Euphonium player who brought FOUR carrier bags of Becks and THREE 3-litre bottles of cider (which was promptly stolen by some guest players while he went to the loo)?

    Did any other bands have some enthusiastic minors who stuck a teaspoon in the lock of the on-board toilet (incidentally, keeping the drunk Euphoniumist and our MD in there for one whole hour on the return journey?)

    Please regale us all with your anecdotes...

    Playing at a contest, Broadoak I think, and the gazebo giving in, soaking our bumper up just as the cornet duet is about to start...and him not reacting at all, while the rest of us corpsed it!! lol! Very very very funny.

    Our 2nd euph player passing the top of the steps to the coach toilet just as the driver had to do a swerve as a car cut across him - causing said 2nd euph to fall down toilet stairs like the proverbial sack of spuds.

    Much sympathy in the form of gales of laughter from the entire coach was given.

    Fair play to him though, he kept hold of his can!

    Also the dancing girls who kept appearing from a garage just after the start at Dobcross, giving many a trom or bass player on the front left corner of various bands a right eyeful!

    My favourite though,whoever played the arrangement of "500 Miles" by the Proclaimers on the street - they gave it their all with much gusto (especially the singing drummers!) and there were smiles all round the streets. Brilliant!
