Well done to all - brilliant result and just what we needed. Thanks to Suzanne, Phil and Jillian for helping us out and special congratulations to John, Mal Gill and Mal Usher for winning their individual awards...oh no, more engraving. (Wish there could've been Horn and Flugel prizes for Steve and Patrick who were both superb today, but there again, so were me and Andrea - hey ho)! Congratulations Graham, a nice belated birthday pressie for you - shame you had to dash off, it was your turn to fill the cup! See you all on Thursday for more Tristan Encounters.

Happy Birthday wishes for the month of February go to John Youll, who we hope to see back playing in the Horn Section VERY SOON and Patrick Garner, who's Flugel we hope to see in the bandroom very soon (see Bandroom News for the full story).

Hi band. Xmas period is now over and I'm just putting my feet up for a well deserved rest. Thanks again for the Christmas present. Its probably the best one I've ever had. I can't stop listening to "Aurora". Well done. Please, if this is the standard of your CDs then it doesn't have to be Christmas to send me one. Thanks again and all the best for 2004! Love SC

Just to echo everyone's sentiments regarding John get well mate. Note due to circumstances beyond my control (work) I have'nt had time to sort Dinner Dance photos out yet, but will endeavour over the next couple of days to try and forward some for John for the web site. One of these includes the fabulous Anthony and his disappearing Christmas Pud trick, (all will be revealed). Till then hope everyone has a happy and hopefully healthy New Year. P.S. to Andy Nic I tried your brake fluid trick on my slide and it worked, do I see a patent coming on here?
