    Brighouse March Contest 2011

    Thurlstone is an Unregistered Band which last competed in the Areas in 1982. As there is no section for Unregistered Bands at this particular competition, the organisers placed us in the 4th section. Bearing in mind we came last in the March their judgement would appear to have been correct. We...

    Results Nationals 2010

    ....... and I can assure you all that Jonny is as annoyed about this as anyone - indeed he reported these posts to the mods himself. Fair play - a few years ago he used to post some real s**t on this site and I was the first to chastise him for it. Now he has better things to do with his...

    French Open Results 2010

    I don’t think our counting was up to much in the theatre (ask Nigel) but at least Dave could smile whilst still playing! ... and contrary to popular belief I only had a couple of drinks before we did the entertainment (OK - they were “formidables” but you never said how large the drinks could...
