    Been about a year since I was last here, but as I was wandering around the threads it struck me that it must be about 10 years since the site started. Many congratulations to John and the team -...

    I don't think it is out of laziness, or fear. Probably more that the type of people who have got the drive to do something are far too busy running and playing in their own bands to devote additional...

    Very true, think the adjudicators said much the same at last year's Yorkshire 4th Section Area where Dinnington (including a number of legitimately registered but none the less very experienced and...

    I don't think it is black and white on either issue. I think the best solution would be to trial Steven Mead's adjudication system, to try and adapt it/improve it to see how it can fit into the...

    Great to see some new faces this year, but also interesting to see the bands who are not on the list - Stannington in particular, but also Rockingham, Barnsley BS, Strata, Emley and Old Silkstone to...

    A noble idea, but I think it is a sad fact that for the majority of the trouble makers it is too late. They attend the event with the simple aim of drinking as much as possible and trying as hard as...

    I've finally managed to get on to 4br to actually read the offending article. My conclusion is that neither PA or CBB (what is the C for?) have been particularly proactive in their approach and both...

    Ok. We can have a "Contesting Brass Band England" to satisfy those in Scotland / Wales etc. and those in non-contesting bands. But my point, and also that of a number of others, that at the moment...

    Round and round we go again. Lots of opinions but not much sign of action - which raises two questions in my head:

    1. What is the organisational structure of the "Brass Banding Movement" in this...

    Wow. Wish I'd spotted this before. I've often thought it'd be a great idea and wished I had the talent to set something up. I will investigate further, and probably persuade the band to invest.

    Well, given the forum, the following I feel is quite impressive:

    Nov 6

    1814: Adolphe Sax
    1854: John P. Sousa
    1923: Don Lusher

    Maybe one day I can be listed alongside these three.
