    Several posts deleted because of someone announcing which pieces bands are playing for a closed adjudication contest . . . thanks to the user who self-reported this so that it could be taken care of quickly. Caution advised in the future!

    Historic Hymnals

    For many years, my father has collected old hymnals and song books, mostly dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Since his retirement, he's begun giving them to me. I decided that the best way to "display" them would be to scan them and post them on the Web. For anyone who is...

    No awards this year?

    Jan and I are the only two mods on at the moment, and we agree that there is no reason to stop someone from setting up their own award threads (Jan has even offered to help with the polls in his post above in this thread). I have a few caveats and suggestions: They won't be the "official tMP...
