Just for the record...The North American Championships are this coming weekend, in Little Rock Arkansas.

Championship section test piece is Peter Graham's Montage. Only 5 bands competing in Championship this year (guess we have a lock on a better finish than last year's 6th place :wink: ) Grimethorpe is (are?) the Gala Concert entertainment and the Stavanger Band are coming from Norway to compete in Championship section, then a whirl-wind tour (including an Iowa concert sponsored by your's truly's band.)

Good luck to any fellow Nabba-ites who might be lurking about.

That's the news from across the pond for this week.

Well, the EIBB didn't fair so well in competition. We finished 5th (in a field of 5 in Championship division.

As expected Stavnager, under David King's direction, won Championship divison. Brass Band of Central Florida took second.

I'll post a complete set of results soon.

THE MOUTHPIECE IS FIRST WITH NORTH AMERICAN RESULTS!!
