The Band were placed a disappointing 5th in the Association Contest at Spennymoor today. Although the Band played well, there were just too many minor mistakes in the performance.
On a brighter note, the Bands Principal Percussionist Alan Beaumont played with Gateshead Brass in the 1st Section and won Best Percussion Section. Gateshead Brass were placed 2nd.
