World Tin Bath Championships - 27/06/09

Saturday afternoon saw the band once more in action at the annual Tin Bath Championships held in Castletown inner harbour, when we played to the gathering crowds for the hour or so prior to the start of the racing. Under the baton of Rodney we blasted through a similar programme to that which we played for Laa Columb Killey the previous Thursday but also containing some different items, such as the trombone trio "I Will Follow Him", Major Thirtle's arrangement of "The Parade of the Tin Soldiers" and "The Abba Collection". Thanks to Jill Collings and Charlotte Bell from Rushen Silver Band for once again coming along to assist.

After the Tin Baths some of the players descended on Simon's house to enjoy another of Simon's popular barbecues. This gave us a chance to not only sample Simon's delicious food, but to amble round his beautiful garden which really is Castletown's best kept secret! He also now has laid a lovely new patio. A very enjoyable afternoon and evening was had by all, and the thanks of everyone who attended must go to Simon and Helen.
