Does anyone know of any up-coming contests around feb-april except the areas? We were thinking of a little social weekend :roll:
Hi sparkly...

... well there's one in Coleford at the beginning of February I think. It's an open entertainment contest i.e. just 1 section with prizes for the highest placed 'n' section bands.

I take it that Brass at the Guild is the Preston contest on Sun Feb 9th?
Preston is cheap - I spent a few years there during my student days!

There is normally only about 3-4 bands in each section at NNEMBA now! :?
But why are Bands so indifferent to their own Association contest ? It should be their first choice after the Area contest, which you have to attend if you want to retain your Section..I can't, and never could understand when I was involved with NEMBBA why so many member bands didn't attend..What do they want from their Assoc ? Why don't they send delegates to meetings, and discuss what it is they want, or is it just TOTAL APATHY..Brian

I wholeheartedly agree with Brian, we all should support our local association contests. Long Eaton always go now!, even when 15 of the band had flu!! we didnt play our best though. Last year we came second best result we had for a long time. My brother carl even got euphonium player of the day!! the rest of the band got a bad headache :)
PS the contest is held at Rolls Royce sports centre moor lane Derby
