Carlton Brass will be making a hash of Images in the Second Section.

Should be interesting to see how each band copes with it. I think Blidworth are also going.

what is the exact date of this? is it half term? well the sunday before- here's hoping. I wanted to come for a listen but the drive back north afterwards sort of puts me off! now if it was half term I could stay at my mum's and get a lift from the bestwood lot and soak up the atmostphere (booze) :tup

What is the NEMBBA contest please?

It's the North East Midlands Brass Band Association pre-area contest where we all get the area piece out for an early run-out. We've found it very useful to play here as it gives us an idea where we're going wrong with it.

It's at the Rolls Royce Social club on Feb 19th :)

*edit* oh and we usually get a few visitors from other associations too. Silk Brass have been before and it's nice to see that Wakefield Met are coming down this time too :)

wahooooooooooo half term starts monday 20th feb!! :cool: Postie I would like to reserve a lift please :tongue:

It is a shame really that the numbers have been down really on this contest really- it's not really a poor contest. I can't remember the acoustics being awful (but haven't played there for a number of years) and the bar is cheap and cheap food as well. Anyone wanting to give the area piece a run out should think about attending :tup

I can answer two of your questions:

1. Yes the sections do follow each other.
2. At the end of the contest I.E. after the completion of the 1st section.
3. Havent heard yet.

Stannington were considering it, but have decided not to go and to concentrate on getting it right for Bradford. I'd heard that Chapeltown, Barnsley Building Society and Riddings might be going, but I'm not sure on either front.

Ah, NEMBBA many happy memories. One year after a particularly early draw I was first into the bar and last out.... I think that was the same year that Sparkly believed when, desperate for the loo, she kept asking how much further and we kept saying "5 minutes", for about 40 miles! And she never once questioned us!

The 2nd section field looks very interesting. On current form the 3 midlands bands are very evenly matched at the top of the midlands area and the 2 Yorkshire bands look equally strong - one just coming down from the 1st section and one near the top of their region.
Throw in the fiendishly difficult Images of the Millenium and its going to be one hell of a scrap.

Should be very good experience for the areas.

We thought about entering the 1st section, but we've got too many people away on holiday this week with it being schools 1/2 term.

I remember playing at NEMBBA with Nottingham City Transport - I think it was in Dronfield Leisure Centre - when we were the only band in the top section.

I can add to this although our band will not be there i will be going myself to support the contest and do a bit of my own placings
So if you are going come over and see me will have Warwickshire County Cricket Club Blue Fleece Top on and either Gresley Black Polo Shirt or LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB tshirt on.
I promise i will not sit on the front row;)
So come over and introduce yourself, and say hello and see if what in think of your performance, so seee you all there folks.
Just ask Postie, Di, Vickitorious who i am.
I'm sure they will point you in the direction:tup :clap:

Yes I will certainly help in pointing to where he is sitting. Not shy in putting down what he thinks, is Ian. You are certainly going to get a very good unbiased view.

The Wakefield Metropolitan band have had to drop out of the contest due to unforeseen circumstances. One of our percussionists is unable to make Sundays contest. However a few members of the band will be coming along to support Crofton Silver Band in the 4th section. We will also watch the bands in the 2nd section if still standing!

COME ON THE CROFTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
