Sunday 25th February
The band enjoyed taking part in the 3rd section of the NEMBBA Contest at South Normanton. Not getting the result we had hoped for has not dampened the bands enthusiasm and hopefully all will go well for us on Saturday in Huddersfield at the Area Contest. In his summing up, the adjudicator Mr Dave Lea gave some very constructive remarks and said how in his opinion the 3rd and 4th section test pieces were very good choices and not as easy to play as bands thought as there are many pitfalls in both pieces. It was nice to see one of our ex MD’s Jonathan Beatty in the audience giving his support and then enjoying a lengthy catch up chat with him.
Tuesday sees the commencement of more hard work in the bandroom.
