I should think I will be popping along for a listen. I agree with Brian as well especially since NNEMBA is a month before the area....a good chance to run the piece out!

There's an entertainment contest a week sunday at Newbiggen in Northumberland. Its an all day drink from 11. Ever Ready won last year so I heard in the bar and they supposed to have played well. I might even listen this year!! :lol:

There is also our local Durham League contest on the first sunday in February at Spennymoor. 4th Section is Eric balls Divertimento :(
 
Also around the same time as Preston is GB Youth Championships if that sort of thing floats your boat. It's at Salford UNi but manchester is amazing to out in.

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!

Thank you my good friend sparkling quavers - I think you should change your avatar and post a picture of yourself without a glass of whatever you were drinking.....

Ok Rutty..what section are you in?
Actually, I'll be lucky if I'm still in the Band!!! Missed the last 2 rehearsals due to firstly my own mistake and then feeling extremely ill!
Better make sure I'm there on Sunday.

Third. We keep coming second at NEMMBA, so we're hoping to improve this year! I look just like my avatar, except I'm not really as fat as that ;o)

Or a ninja

Ok, we're in 1st section.
Not sure how the contest is run as not been before but if we're there when you play I'll come and have a listen (and clap and cheer of course!!).
I'm sure I'll recognise you as the only bandmember wearing a balaclava and looking like a stick man!! Not sure what you've got in your hand though. Looks a bit dangerous to me!
Anyway, good luck at the contest.

Hello Rutty

I know what you look like even without the balaclava on!

Hope you've been practising hard for the NNEMBA contest!

You could always show up in Little Rock, Arkansas, USA for NABBA on April 11 & 12. If you come from Britain (and you're not with Grimethorpe, sorry I do have a budget) look me up and I'll buy you a beer.
