8. Chairman's Report 2003: Denis Johnstone stated that he felt it had been a particularly difficult last year for the band, accompanied by the break up of the Grade 3A section.Unlike previous Chairs he was not able to report progress in the band.The past year had been one of stagnation, but there were growing signs of a more positive future.Nonetheless, the band had fulfilled all its engagements, and had performed particularly well on Games Day despite the downpour!From a personal point of view it had been too long a summer.Despite the prospect of having to board a coach at 6.00am to travel to competitions, he nonetheless missed the camaraderie of travelling together and competing.He sincerely hoped that this situation would be corrected in the coming year.He continued by saying that the band was effectively in a period of transition.
