yea Youth Brass 2000 are going.....defending our title as French Open Youth Champions.....its a good weekend, as I'm sure many YB & ex-YB players will tell you! Although we won't be there for the band greating session - by the looks of things we'll arrive at about 7am sat morning - and be up for the march by 11!
Great news that your lot are coming to France. We had a great time last time we went...have a look at out trombone players website www.philipharrison.co.uk there are a few piccies of the Amboise on there (mostly obscured by drunk people tho!)
We are leaving at 10pm on Thursday after practice, can't wait!!!
sorry i take that back, Johnny Webster is adjudicating!
Has anyone else found out what time they are competing? We just found out we are supposed to be in the contest hall for 8.30am!!!! How ridiculous is that! We don't even leave the Midlands til 4-5pm on Friday afternoon, meaning we will arrive at about 5-6am french time Sat Morning! and as I'm sure Lynchie can tell you not many of us arrive in Amboise sober! :? might have to be a sober 12 hour coach journey!!!
