    Transfer fees

    PS I am delighted to see that my Active Member is credited below my avatar. But sorry to see that Anno Draconis is classified as a "well known member". This is harsh in my opinion, as I have always been a big fan of his insightful contributions on here.

    Transfer fees

    I am not a qualified lawyer. But how many players in a band have a contract that would stop them leaving, and then joining another band ? It would worry me if BBE were giving time to the consideration of something so patently ridiculous. What have the BBE ever done for us ? Perhaps it would...

    Question for the Salvation Army members

    So if I am playing a hymn at band practise, can God tell if I am worshipping him or (for example) wondering whether I have left the gas on ? Regards Bob (not a qualified theologist)

    In or Out?

    Well. As a white, occasional Sun reader, from the East End who is old enough to have done National Service (if it wasn't for these flat feet), you can imagine where my vote is going. But after some consideration I have based my decision on these things:- Thing 1. It seems that the young ones...

    Examples of a good large-bore French horn?

    NW Areas Result - What happened? #Regs2016

    Really ? Prosecuted ? Are you sure ? I do remember the previous owner of this site accusing me of being someone else in his postings and mounting a campaign to get me sacked from my part-time work as a lavatory attendant. But he never did like me very much for some reason.

    I am a ...........?

    Blimey Mark you sound awesome. I once won a bottle of liquor on the Tombola at a fete (50p a go) after the Pearly B Band had murdered a few Edrich Siebert classics, that led to me vomiting the whole of the next day. How about that ? Love Bob PS. I don't want a fight as I am 79 (I think)

    shank that is smaller than small?

    An easy mistake to make Mr O'Lard. I bought this violin off the internet and I'm having a devil of a job getting it under my chin.

    2016 Area Test Piece Rumours

    Not sure if I should share this here, but I have been asked by the publisher to get a final version of Songs from Uranus by Bob Sherunkle to them by the end of the month, and to ensure there are some top Zs in the euph part and a gong cadenza.
