• tMP Functionality - we're working on it.

    We are going to continue to configure the latest software over the next few weeks but we felt it was looking ok enough for us to be able to relaunch tMP as it stands now. There are a list of items I need to continue to work on and set up, but if you do have any ideas or suggestions as to what else we could do, please shout and let me know.

    The front page of tMP is now an inbuilt vBulletin CMS type of function which I have yet to configure in the way it will be finally, so my apologies if this changes. We are going to continue to work on this over time.

    The menu system currently only has two items... so if you're in the forum and you want to get back to the very front - click the little 'house' looking icon at the very top-left just above the yellow notice.

    Thanks to everyone for your understanding, and patience whilst we continue to recover. Shout in the 'How-to' section if there's anything you want to ask.

    Just read this on 4barsrest - http://www.4barsrest.com/news/detail.asp?id=20353#.VV8lElJHnCQ seems that Owen got the boot from Cory, can't quite believe it. I wonder where he'll go, my money is on Grimethorpe. But more importantly any gossip as to who Cory will appoint to replace him?

    Brass Band 28/28 competition

    Thread Starter: midwalesman

    Contesting. The Jekyll and Hyde of the music genre we love and hate. A schizophrenic character disorder that both provides a life blood but also a millstone around the neck of our hobby. Each year we peddle around the proverbial contest wheel wishing to get a little bit higher or faster and if...

    The wind band and fanfare band movements manage to compete without too many restrictions on instrumentation or numbers. You only have to look at any

    Anno Draconis,
    I am preaching to the choir. So is everyone else on this board. Only a small percentage on this board are not involved with banding.
