Hardraw Scar 2015

Stuart Warriner writes:

Dear Friends

It is time that you are no doubt all thinking of Hardraw Scar 2015!

We are all looking forward to a great contest once more and hope to welcome you back to compete again. This year we have changed the entry procedure slightly to a two stage affair where we will draw for places. We are delighted the contest is so popular but because of this the process of gaining a place was becoming very stressful for everyone with the final competing bands being determined by the efficiency of the local postie! It was great if you got your place but there were increasing numbers of unhappy people each year too. The attached details the process – basically get your entries to me by post or e-mail by the 16th of March and if there are too many entries for the spots then we will draw the entries out of a hat – a little less certain I realise, but fair for everyone – the precise workings of this and the entry form are detailed in the attached.

I hope the fact that you can do this initial stage by e-mail also helps keep everything nice and simple.

If you have any queries please just let me know. I can be pretty difficult to track down by phone but if you bob me an e-mail I will call /email you back as soon as I can.

Best regards


Colin Wormald  R.I.P.
The Yorkshire and Humberside Brass Band Association are sad to report the death of Colin Wormald on Wednesday, 11th March.
Colin will be well known to many bands as he organised the Hardraw Scar contest for many years, was Vice President of the Association and Secretary of Wetherby Silver Band. A good friend and supporter to all who knew him - he will be greatly missed.
All his friends and colleagues are invited to attend a Service of Celebration of Colin's Life at St. Mary's Church, High Street, Boston Spa on Monday, 23rd March at 3.00 pm
Rest in peace thou good and faithful servant to banding.
