Ton Awards 2012

The band held their annual awards night on 27 April which celebrated a great 12 months for the band.

Winning the Scottish Open in November last year, taking place 2nd in the Welsh Open and 2nd in the Welsh Regionals has given the band plenty to be positive about.

A strong year for nominations we’re pleased to announce the winners:

Player of the Year – Martyn Patterson
Players’ Player of the Year – Vicki Kennedy
Performance of the Year – Martyn Patterson for the Scottish Open
Bandsperson of the Year – Jason Bevan
Most Improved Player of the Year – Vicki Kennedy

The strong contesting results has given the band their best ever ranking position with 4barsrest.com moving the band to 14th in the world – this truly is testament to the hard work and dedication of all our players. The band would like to once again extend their thanks to Philip Harper, Josh Ruck and Martyn Patterson for their hard work and commitment over the last few months in-front of the band.

The awards night ended like any good contest with a banding show-down; “cornets & percussion” versus “the rest of the band” in a skittles challenge that went down to the final peg! The “rest of the band” were victorious thanks to Euphonium player Huw who held his nerve, snatching the win by 1 skittle!
