    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    I'm not reciting my views for you again, they are clearly made out within this thread. The fact that others apart from Wayne, myself and you have read and posted here suggests that others agree with me. One thing though - I don't think anyone has ever said the results were bad. Your comment...

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    I think you've hit the nail on the head. The Wrexham Brass issue is important (at least to some) but it the way it's been dealt with that is worrying and should concern all "proper" bandsmen and women. Secrecy from the committee, nothing from CBB and it seems as if nothing has been put in...

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    I spoke to a mate of mine who plays with another band in South Wales. Apparently CBB taking rehearsals for the winning band before the contest was common knowledge. I just don't know who to believe any more.......

    One question I have, though. With Wrexham Brass not being allowed to compete, will they automatically receive maximum points and so get relegated, or will their points be "saved" and they be allowed to compete in the first section in 2013?

    You are right, that would be the right thing to do. Unfortunately I think it goes deeper than this one incident and there may be other motives for some of the WRC that dates back over a decade. A case of getting even rather than justice. That's only my opinion though. Has this letter been...

    He really is a disgrace, in my opinion. I couldn't believe to hear you'd gone, Wayne! Good luck, wherever you go.

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    Have you actually read any of my posts? I'm talking about problems that strike at the heart of brass banding in the UK. There won't be much of a banding movement out of the top 20 or so bands in the UK if it carries on and the "organisers" continue as they have done here. This is not a one off...

    Well, you should care.

    It's Boxing DAy now. Can we have an update from Wrexham Brass? I would also ask The "committee", but they simply don't think they have to tell anyone anything.

    I think so too, although it was initially with tongue in cheek! it would put "them" in a very reasonable light and help save a good band. Given the past with "them" I wouldn't hold your breath, though!!!

    Any odds on Mr Morris, oops, sorry, no, the "Welsh Regional Committee" doing the right thing and allowing Wrexham to compete, perhaps without WR?

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    Apparently not, at least not when I saw a senior member of the band at work the other day. I don't think anyone here would defend the banding authorities and Mr Morris over their communication skills.

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    At last! I've been saying this for months on here! Banding is facing a crisis in the UK. Awful decisions, some of the older brigade desperately clinging on to power and actively putting off the younger blood that's needed to drive banding onwards towards the 20th century (yes - I mean the...

    STOP IT! Both of you! Rustonw, please carry on with your posts on this topic. Hobgoblin, please stop just trying to wind people up! You should be embarrassed with your own behaviour on here!

    Sorry I have to disagree. The emails, et al, appear to be quite pertinent background to the issues at hand.

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    How is it going off topic? This thread is still mainly concerned with the events at the Welsh Area in March surrounding C B Buckley, Wayne Rushton and (allegedly) members of Wrexham Brass. I don't see that this is off the topic of the Welsh Area 2011?

    Paddy's Welsh Area - 2011

    But this is where all the relevant posts giving context to it is. Perhaps if people stopped posing posts asking for the thread to be closed it would be much shorter a thread?! One thing that strikes me as I type - why do some people want it closed? Are there some who want it closed because of a...

    Spot on, and thank you for keeping this thread open. This is an important subject to the whole future of banding. Issues here need to be discussed and people need to be aware of what is happening.
