    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)

    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!! Postie I would like to reserve a lift please

    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

    Whitwell haven't been to this contest for a few years. Can anyone remind me:
    1. Do the sections follow each other?
    2. When are the results announced?
    3. Has(Have) the name(s) of the adjudicator(s) been announced yet?
    Thanks in advance.

    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.
