July 09 Update

So we're halfway through our competitive season so far, 2 months on from the last update, its time for another...

Competitive Season
The season started with the Northern Preview, after much panicking the week before, people not knowing music etc, we finally managed to pull it together on the night. Several people commented on our show and a member of another corps thought we had received new brass instruments already as we sounded that good!
Moving on a few weeks later we had the Northern Star Youth Band Championships, we drew first on and again were panicking as we had only done 2 full run-throughs of the show. The results were announced and it was a great result we had won!
Our winning streak then carried on after we had travelled to Upton on Severn and then Barnsley.

More outings....
As most people know, as well as doing competitions, Revolution also participate in other engagements such as Galas and garden parties, we enjoyed performing in Keighley Gala, The Shant, and Clayton Church garden party. As well as enjoying ourselves, the Corps also earning money towards paying for the new instruments.

New instruments for brass section
The brass section are waiting on delivery of their new Jupiter Quantum marching instruments, these are expected to arrive within the next few weeks. Preparations are currently being made to make sure these instruments are looked after well and kept in the best possible condition. Pictures of unpackaging will be updated when they arrive.

Belgium
This year, Revolution and several members of other bands/corps will be touring Belgium, playing in theme parks and under Menin Gate. Nearly 40 members of the Corps will travel in late August and we feel that this maybe a perfect opportunity to showcase our new instruments.

Guess Who's Back!
The second half of the season this year will commence with a camp at Batley, here 2 members will join the corps, Liam, a young lad will join the drumline and Josiah will re-join the brassline on baritone. We think with the addition of these two members and the new brass instruments, our scores will continue to rise up and up (with hard work)

Keep checking out www.byba.org.uk for latest scores in the season and keep checking back at this website for the next news from the Revolution Show Corps season.
