Topic: Website shutdown!
I will be sad to see this web site close down -- it was a great resource for us (Zumbrota Community Band) for participants for our summer band festival. We never got our band listed on this page (tried several times), but we used the site often. Won't somebody keep it going????

I enjoyed browsing through your site - I haven't visited for several years. The "Amazing" Worthington City Band is winding up their season in July. We trace our origins back to 1893. What a great tradition of community bands we have in Minnesota. It's a great way to give back to the community, and to say thanks for all the music programs in the schools.

My name is Gerry Cowie and I play euphonium in the Saskatoon Brass Band in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I'm writing to ask for your help in completing a survey for a tourism sales and marketing class. In a nutshell, the survey seeks to determine the level of interest in a vacation put together specifically with Brass or Brass Band players, Brass Band enthusiasts, or anybody who loves brass music in mind. This survey is unique and may be of real interest to any Brass player. I explain it in greater detail on my web page at http://www.brassbandvacations.com/ I encourage you to take a look.
I'm asking for your help in completing the survey to give me some indication of the potential market for a tour of this nature. I would also be most grateful if you would consider forwarding this to anyone you think might be interested in this concept. This will expand the sample size for the survey and the reliability of the results.
Thanks very much for your help. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at this e mail address: gerry@brassbandvacations.com

Dave, did you get the Sousa Band schedule that I posted on the community band website last week? I see the blurb asking for a bassoon player, but I don't yet see you concerts. I want to be sure that I submitted the information correctly and that you got it.

Pleas let me know. Thanks.

There is no "membership" required. We will list any known community band in Minnesota on the web pages. If you are a member of a band that is not listed, just complete the form on the web site and I will add your organization to the list.

We need bands!! If anyone is interested, please e-mail me ASAP. It's hard to find bands during the summer. It's extremely fun & there is a street dance afterward! Thank you so much. Jennifer

To: Elliott Royce
I'd be glad to include you in the listing on the web site and to include your announcements on the bulletin board. There are forms on the web site for submitting material for the web site.
   See : http://www.visi.com/~diazwalby/submitevent.shtml
The only list of Band that we have is the listing on the web page.
   Resource Page : http://www.visi.com/~diazwalby/resource.shtml
You can print a copy of the list directly from the web page.
You also can copy and paste all of the information to a word processor or text editor and, with a little formatting adjustment, you have your own list.
If you need a special format for the list, let me know and I'll see if I can supply it to you.
(Note: I sent you an email but the email address you used failed for me.)
