    Oberoesterreich consider Euro future

    Has anybody else read the article on 4barsrest? http://www.4barsrest.com/news/detail.asp?id=7869 I was surprised at the tone (which seemed a little presumptuous) but the rationale behind it also raises some interesting issues. I'm not saying they are necessarily wrong but it is quite bold...

    Build a new life in the Country - Channel 5

    Just watching the cricket highlights on 5 and there was a trailer for the above programme. It sounded like a band playing the music. Can any band claim fame to this? Igg

    Masters Golf 2007

    I love this tournament. It reminds me that Spring is here and Summer aint far away. I'm quite hopeful of a European victory this year. The likes of Paul Casey, Luke Donald, David Howell, Justin Rose, Padraig Harrington and Ian Poulter seem better placed this year than any. However, this is...

    Invitation contests, entitlement to enter and rankings

    I thought that this may have had an airing here before now. I was surprised to read the submission to the letters section of 4br from Mr Shenton on behalf of the Rothwell Band and even more surprised at their reply to Trevor Caffull's (in my opinion, very well worded) comments. It has aired...

    Raise money for charity each time you search the net

    http://www.everyclick.com/uk/ I had this emailed to me at work today. Everyclick is a search engine whereby you choose a charity to benefit from your use of the Net. I have tried it and its not bad. Not sure it is anywhere near as good a search engine as, say, Google but I like the idea...

    Bands on TV - again?

    This has probably been done before - if so, sorry. I saw some of the Eisteddfod on S4C and thought with the advent of Digital and so many TV channels, it should be conceivable/ possible to get ITV 27 or some other equally high ranking channel to televise e.g. highlights of the Nationals/...

    Bands on ITV Westcountry on 27 April 2006 @ 7:30pm

    Apparently the West of England Bandsmen's Festival will feature on "Bendall's Westcountry" on 27 April 2006 on ITV1 for Westcountry viewers. Not sure whether you can access this through digital and/or Sky if you live outside the region. Recorded from June 2005. See the link below for more...

    National Finals test piece rumours

    Let the speculation commence now that the Areas have been and gone for another year. I have heard various rustlings but this year my best leads indicate that we may see the Championship section return to the classical repertoire. Anybody else heard any morsels? Don't we have the...

    True Christmas Spirit

    A Christmas tale to warm your hearts... There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day just before Christmas, a letter landed on his desk, simply addressed in shaky handwriting to "God". With no other clue on...

    Brass in Concert 2005

    This year of course at the Sage Centre, Gateshead. Just had notification of the full draw. Some big name bands here - one of which has drawn no.1! Better not put it up just yet or might steal someone else's thunder. It is open adjudication after all so no risk in revealing the draw...

    Dirty White van messages

    I was travelling to work this morning, following the dreaded white van driver. As they usually are, his rig was filthy. Someone had written in the mess "I wish my missus was this dirty!". I thought it was blinkin' funny but it made me wonder if anybody out there has read any other funny...

    Grand Shield/ Senior Cup/ Senior Trophy

    Pontins is almost here and I'm sure that in the past the test pieces for the above have been announced by now. Anyone heard any rumours, (or know for that matter)? Igg

    Euro 2004 Panini Sticker Album

    I have gone back to my childhood days and am collecting these again this year. Such fun! :D Anyway, I have loads of swapsies. Anybody else collecting and want to trade? It would help if you put up on screen the numbers of which ones you have to trade. My list is at home and I'll...

    Any psychopaths out there?

    This may have been done before. If so, sorry but I thought it was quite funny. Read this question, come up with an answer and then scroll down to the bottom for the result. This is not a trick question. It is as it reads. Situation A woman, while at the funeral of her own mother, met...

    Adjudication at the All England Masters

    I'm surprised that 4barsrest or somebody here on tMP hasn't raised this issue yet. There is always a lot of comment about the system of adjudication at the Masters. This year, all competing bands were invited to vote whether they wanted to retain the current system of 3 adjudicators in...

    Great British Driving Test programme

    Did anybody else watch this last night? Did you take part? I failed miserably managing only 25 out of 35. Mind you some of them were really hard. I never knew you could cross a solid white line in the middle of the carriageway if it is to overtake a bike or horse going less than 10 mph...

    Sold/Expired Sovereign Tenor Horn required

    Not for me personally I might add! Band requires one 2nd/ 3rd hand and will pay reasonable price for it. Would need to be in good condition. Small dents and minor problems would be okay. If you have such a thing waiting to go to a new loving home or know somebody who does, please PM me...

    Sold/Expired Denis Wick 4B cornet mouthpiece required

    When I bought my own (first ever) cornet I bought a sovereign and gave away my 4B mouthpiece to a beginner in my band. I wish I hadn't done it now but, if like I did at the time, you have just bought a sovereign and have the 4B that comes free with it and want to sell it on then please either...
