27th July. It's held in the market square at Easingwold, North Yorkshire. I can't remember the exact time it starts but it's basically an evening march contest.

It's a great evening out but unfortunately I can't go this year as I'm at work

Does anyone see a pattern in dodgy PA system and disappointing results, or is it simply that playing a bass makes you see conspiracies everywhere ? :biggrin:

The joys of marching in Police uniform on your day off. Verbal abuse (ladies) and objects thrown at my players as we marched past the line of pubs.
We enjoyed the contest but it was spoilt by the activities of very small minority.

I guess no one else suffered the same response, perhaps it was the choice of music, or more likely the uniform ;-)

There's just no need for it is there??:(:(

Why do people have to spoil events like this :confused::confused::confused:

Don't know about the objects being thrown, I gather that was round the corner from where we were standing from what I heard...but I hope the verbal abuse comment wasn't aimed at me!
As your band got off the bus (all in uniform and blatantly obvious who you were) and started to unload the instruments, we were standing outside the George Hotel and I just called across the road (for a bit of a giggle) "What band are you lot then?" to a WPC that was standing at the rear of the bus. The look she gave me could have sunk ships! I think someone said later that they recognised her on the march past as your flugel player? If she took offence at my little joke or misheard me then she has my apologies, it was only meant as a bit of fun and no offence was intended.
As you marched past we all stood clapping and showing our support, but as you passed there were three policemen giving a ticket to a bloke in a car across the road, so I called to the one that seemed to be doing the least of the three of them that they'd be ruining your bands chance of the deportment prize if they didn't keep up. He (gladly) saw the funny side of that. :biggrin:

Throwing stuff at people is unforgivable. Those idiots want locking up.

:clap: I agree the idiots do need locking up, but your always going to have the few who will spoil it for someone.

I know I've mentioned this before, but the majority of the band are not police officers and the only association we have is playing for the band which we proudly do supporting various charities throughout the year and representing the force at many public events.

Sorry if this sounds a bit narky, but the incident this weekend has annoyed me in the fact that if we'd been in stage uniform it probably would of been a different story.lol.
