    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.

    That's Euphonium, from the Greek Eu meaning pleasant and phonos meaning sound - no matter what noise I happen to be making at the time
