    The 'Official' tMP North of England Regional Thread

    Think there was only 5 lines of remarks for us. Again the same sort of thing "Well handled", "good shapes" ect. However our remarks ended at Letter O. I guess Geoffrey must of fallen asleep after then!

    Can I ask what people thought of Fishburn's performance in the champ section yesterday? I know its not the done thing to comment on your own bands performance and I don't want this to sound like sour grapes, but I thought we played really well and did enough to qualify. Fair play to CLS and...

    Flugel Mouthpieces ... or is it me?

    Have you thought about using a 4BFL Dennis wick? I'm not a great fan of Wick B cup mouthpieces but it should help with the range and give a brighter sound, which will help in the trumpet type stuff. Also it has the same rim diameter as your 4FL so it will be easy to swap back. :)

    North East Areas 2005 moved to 26th-27th February

    The advantage with the sage would be that we could have all the sections on one day as there are a number of concert halls. It would also raise the profile of our area as a whole, holding the regional contest in such a venue. Not to mention going out in Newcastle afterwards for a few drinks...
