SO our 3rd was bemusing and makes you want to jack it all in, wow, thank-you. and there's me thinking that we played well after all the hard work we put in
maybe you should put yourself forward to adjudicate after all you seem to think you had a better handle on it than the adjudicators, I...
Think a quiet message to them at the time saying they were being monitored and that the tweets were offending and a warning them that further action would be taken if they continued would have sufficed
Wonder how much of this is also certain people/organisations trying to get publicity and...
Having read the tweets, i agree it got out of hand and would not defend them in anyway
However i hope this debate doesnt go into "Daily Mail" mode with people who never saw any of them professing how offended and disgusted they were without having first hand exposure to them
Cheating means breaking the rules
If the rules say you can borrow then you havent broken the rules hence you are not cheating
Its ok to criticise the rules but to say something that is legal is "cheating" is just wrong and maybe a case of 4barsrest falling into a habit of sensationalist journalism
Wakey Met band would be ideal for you. the train is regular from Leeds and wouldnt be too much of a pain travel wise and I know they are after cornet players
See their website http://www.wmbb.org/ for contact details
Wakefield Metropolitan require a Solo Cornet and Repiano for a Remembrance concert at Wakefield Cathedral on Friday the 12th of November
We would need you to be there at 630 for a 645 start.
Please PM me if you can help, reasonable expenses considered
If they scrapped the no borrow rule, we wouldn't have been able to go as we have 2 cornet vacancies and our Euph player is abroad working.
Love to see how many bands would have actually made Pontins if they hadn't borrowed players
Wonder if there would be a "we need to borrow players" thread...
Not saying you started it although i'd love to know how it did
However the responsible thing to do would maybe to a bit of checking up. A minute on the Marsden Website would answer your question about whether they needed deps or if they had people in those seats to start with
Or you could look at their website http://www.marsden-band.co.uk/ where after looking at the band line up you'll see that isn't the case
In fact if anything isn't this a bit libellous? Are people who are relating that rumour saying that in the interview with 4 barsrest Glyn Williams is...
Ive a friend who played Trombone as a child and wants to take it up again by having some private lessons
Does anyone know of a trombone tutor in either Wakefield or Huddersfield or that vicinity who would be able to give a few lessons during the week?
I forgot Ian doesn't do sarcasm, or proper reading of other posts too ;-)
Your right it was sarcasm
It would have been impossible for any band to play Les Preludes with seats empty. We played 3 on the front row for the areas but this piece meant you had to have 4 without some serious rewriting...
