Thank you barri-clari for organising event, it was a super day and a good meal to finish.
Everyone was brilliant, thanks to all, it is so nice to be able to put faces to at least a few of the forum members.
And I agree with barri-clari, Halka's daughter was great moving to 1st Clarinet.

All in all a fantastic day.

Regards, Peter.

Sbhoa and I are safely back to mine. We too thoroughly enjoyed the day (although I still think clarinets are far too complicated).

It was lovely to meet new people, and to see old friends. Thanks to Barry for all his hard work in setting it up and running it.

I'm sure I was the first home - but I've only just logged on.

I'd like to add my thanks to Barry for organising a fun, no pressure, day's playing.

We're only just waking up here in the west.....

My daughter enjoyed her day. Ever the primadonna (!) she was glad of the opportunity to play 1st clarinet, so thank you all for making it possible. I was glad to sit at the back and do my theory workbook without feeling I really should be getting on with the ironing!!

Thanks Barry for organising it all.

Glad you all enjoyed it - makes setting the playdays up all worthwhile. I enjoyed directing you all. smile.gif

There will be more playdays of varying descriptions next year, not just in Greenwich, but in various locations in the UK. Keep an eye on the 2009 calendar, and don't forget there's still one more playday this year, in Eccles, Greater Manchester on Saturday November 15th, for all orchestral instruments. smile.gif

Thanks Barri-Clari for organising the event, it was a really good day and you obviously put a lot of effort into organising it which made it a fantastic day.

Well done to everyone who went along, I really liked some of the pieces we played and thought they sounded very good for a sight-reading day. I think the digibells was my favorite.

Hope to see you all again soon.

Apologies for not staying fo rthe meal & chat but I can't eat wheat so pizza is a bit tricky!

Thanks again.

No, I'm not the last home, but I arrived home to find that the Internet was down and not expected to be fixed until Tuesday. Luckily they found that it was at their end, not ours, and it returned this morning. smile.gif

Anyway, thanks to Barry for organising a great day, even though he broke his promise big time about no bottom Ds. I'm now musing whether to do any more sax playing, or indeed, exams. Possibly Grade 2 some time - I don't have one of those in anything else. wink.gif

Just in case anyone who heard my tale of woe on Saturday is even vaguely interested, I now have a new washing machine installed, delivered and working!
