    Yes we were at the Elland Competion, Our Quartet came 3rd and I got the best bass prize.
    Not sure if there were any other basses there :?

    Hi Hilary

    Bit of a way off yet, but the Yorkshire Co-op Band solo and quartet contest will be taking place on the 6 July at Rastrick High School - much the same format as last year!

    Hopefully we will see you and the Oughtibridge contingent again this year?

    I hope we will be there but at the moment our quartet has no Euphonium player and the two horn players Mark and Michelle have both left Oughtibridge to go to higher section bands. We will try to reform after the areas

    Solo & Quartet

    Hi Hilary!

    What's the gossip, where have Mark & Michelle departed for?! Say hi to them if you see them, i'm going to Bromsgrove again this year and have some funny photos from last year!

    Hope things are going well at Oughtibridge, and if your entering i might well see you at the elland contest again

    Hi Helen
    Michelle has gone to Chapletown on 2nd horn. They are a 1st section band with a good chance of promotion to championship.
    Mark has gone to Carlton Main Frickley on 2nd horn.
    Oughtibridge is having trouble getting horns and front row cornets but I think we have got a team together for the areas so fingers crossed
    I understand you have moved to BT. Say hello to Aidan for me
    I will hope to see you at Elland but if not then see you at summer school.

    Yeah i'll pass on my regards to aidan! He's lost even more weight now and missed band practive last week (tut tut) but we'll forgive him cos he was doing 2 days cycling (ouch!).
    Things are going great at BT and i'm absolutely loving it!

    I'll keep an eye out for you, Mark & Michelle at the areas too (i'm playing in north-west but may well be watching/drinking at others, probably yorkshire!), i'm guessing Billy has something to do with Mark's move!

    Aidan (nadia) you'll have to change your name cos things get far too confusing! By the way your first one on my phone list now so when my mobile unlocks itself it'll ring u instead of aidan h, mwahaha!

    Well we have reformed our Quartet and Owen tells me that the Yorkshire Co-op Band solo and quartet contest which was to have been on 6th July has moved to sometime in September,
    So we are looking around for a Quartet/Duet/Solo Contest to enter,

    Does anyone know of any coming up?

    Don't you need to be really good to enter that Aidan
    Not sure if we're up to it

    Don't want to come last although I suppose somebody has to

    Anyway I think you all have to be from the same band for that and we're not any more.
    At the moment 2 from Chapeltown, 1 from Oughtibridge, and 1 from Carlton Main Frickley

    yup you have to be registered with the same band..
    its not all about being good.. its good just to play in a different kind of ensemble for a change, it helps you develop new (and not so new) skills as a player.
    so everyone enter
