    Spring Festival 2013

    We did play with a number of deps, due to several players being unavailable for the contest with exams etc. Luckily our friends at Kirkintilloch Kelvin Brass stepped up and helped out.

    Fife Brass Band Festival 2011

    Not sure. Usually the lower sections get a bigger entry though I think. There was only one band competing in the Champ a couple of years ago and they didn't open it up even then.

    How About Pre-drawn Regionals?

    I think a predraw was discussed for the Scottish Championships this year but didn't go ahead, I'm not sure why though. I guess some bands must have objected to it. Seems sensible enough to me! Not so much of a problem here though as the sections are not massive.

    Best/worst Band trip?

    Best trip (and it will take some beating) has to be the the NYBBS Japan tour which we returned home from a week ago. It was incredible! I think that an important factor in whether or not the tour is sucessful is the morale in the band. In the NYBBS we all get on with each other well and its a...
