    That'll be a different Jonathan Pippen then

    If this thread is the Official tMP Welsh Regional 2008 thread, and Tredegar and Pontypool are in the 2008 Welsh Regionals, surely andywooler's post was on topic. Please note, I am not shouting, either.

With at least 45 minutes break within the first 9 hours (this may be broken up but not into any less than 15 minute blocks) and another 45 minute break befor eth 10th hour.
    The 11 hour rest may also be reduced to 10m if the driver is away from base.


    In other words its absolutely no problem. (Im pretty familiar with the taco rules).

    The rest sounds a bit like excuses. An extra page or 6 in the programme cant be a real reason for not considering this. Surely.

    A predraw (if needed) could be organised by letting the bands who are eligable for entry which draw they would be in. No actual confirmation of entry would be needed.

    Why not at least attempt some improvements.

    I was attempting to establish if JonP's desire to remove the closing date had anything to do with Pontypool not being present at the Welsh Regional Contest.
    Quite simple really.

    And it does not relate to what we are discussing.

    Until the comment above it absolutely did - you cannot link to a site in your tMp profile and then whinge that the information is wrong. It was a perfectly valid question to ask and a perfectly valid piece of simple research to do. The site has your name and phone number on the opening page for gods sake.

    So we've established you don't have a higher motive for wanting the closing date scrapped.
    And we've established you know a lot about regulations relating to bus drivers.
    If you have the time, why not get onto a regional committee and get the changes you want to see actioned?

    Is anyone actually interested in talking about the area contests?

    Clowns.

    It does seem to me though that when attempts are made at teh m,eetings to change anything than a resounding air of disinterest rukles. I now trhat suggestions have been made at teh welsh association relating to various topics, but change seems to be avoided at all costs. NOt in a obstructive way, but in a way that it would really be too much trouble. Its almost like a its not broke dont fox it attitude, but it is broke!!

    Only in some peoples opinion...


    Isn't there the possibility that scrapping the registration period, tho probably solving some issues, would create more than it solved?
    Not just quite emulating last years successes!

    Please don't drag the name of Tredegar Town Band into this, and for you all to know,Mr Pippen no longer plays or has anything to do with Tredegar Town Band !!

    Please see the up to date web site of Tredegar and you will see the current playing members of the band.
