    Good luck mate, hope it goes well. Don't forget you blow in the narrow end of the cornet!! Also always watch the conductor as he know's what he's doing, or at least that's what you told me!

    I hate area contests. I know that it's necessary but there's something a bit strange about playing in a cavernous room where half the audience listen to the same piece 10 times and the other half are bandsmen wishing bad luck & mistakes on you.

    Too many negative vibes for my taste, give me a park job or decent concert any day.

    Only my 2nd Post...so Please be gentle with me...
    Well, here we are again coming up to the Northern Area Regional Contest, I know I was never much good at Geography but the Northern Area seems to stretch from our friends up in Northumberland to way down to our friends in Lincolnshire..!!!..is there no area contest nearer for such bands....like may I respectfully suggest ...perhaps the Yorkshire Area... (ps...not for our friends up North)...?
