It's contest day! Looking forward to playing Pageantry in the Championship section at Gala Theatre this afternoon.

Yesterday we learned the sad news that our friend and former 1st trombone player, Crawford Hall, had passed away. Crawford will not just be remembered for his fantastic musicianship, but also his wonderful personality and sense of humour that always lit up the bandroom.

The band's thoughts and best wishes are with Crawford's family at this incredibly sad time.

Rest in peace, Crawford.

The results are in and we finished 10th. Thanks to the whole band and John for so much hard work. Roll on next year.

We've been drawn number 8. Not long until we're on stage now.
