... to all the members of Dungarvan Band for allowing me to sit in on 3rd cornet at the weekend. I had a smashing time and hope to see you all again sometime soon!

Well done to the band for coming third at Clonakilty (hope I spelled that correctly) and a HUGE well done to Kepps for winning a prize for "Best Brass Player" (see picture below). He played like a star.

Does that mean his playing sparkled or that he could only be seen after dark :?: :wink: :lol:
