    Thread Starter: Bbmad

    Has anyone here as a player or MD ever moved up the sections, from say 4th to 1st or even Champ Section with the same band? If so: How long did it take? How many original players from the 4th section made it? How was it financed/was it sustainable? Was the sense of achievement greater than...

    Maybe I am a dinosaur but I really miss the green Carol book. I'm sure that has been a topic of conversation here before. Hard to identify new numbers

    Women have breasts, men have willys, we are built differently.

    women and men do, generally , think differently. Men are more logical
