1st Anniversary of web site

Today (May 25, 2011) marks the 1st Anniversary of the commissioning of this web site dedicated to the City of Burnie Brass Band. Thanks must go to those who have contributed information over the last year to make this happen. May the web site continue to thrive and evolve over time.

The Band's section of the 2011 Burnie Eisteddfod has just been held. Congratulations must go to the Wynyard Municipal Concert Band for taking out the event with 88 points just ahead of the CBBB in second place with 86 points.

Margaret Scolyer, (wife of the late Frank Scolyer) is currently recovering in Hospital from a major operation. A number of people recently attended her 80th Birthday celebration held in the band rooms and we all send our best wishes to her to make a full recovery.

Les Neish is an apparent Tuba player and musician of great note who has a popular presence on YouTube. This presence on YouTube has lead to him being noticed by one of our band members who has had regular E-mail discussions with him. As a result of these discussions, there is a possibility of the Burnie Council contributing money to have Les visit Burnie for work shops with the CBBB and other musical groups around Burnie. Other possibilities include Les acting as an Adjudicator at the October State Band Championships. More information about this as it comes to hand.


04/08/2011 - Margaret Scolyer recovered and out of hospital for a number of weeks now.
                    - The Annual General Meeting shall be held tonight in the Band room at 9:00PM
