As time moves on and our players get older, their lives change as they move to university or jobs, and their time comes to leave our band. Although we love to welcome them back to help us out whenever they can, there is a very strict upper age limit on all the contests we participate in, which precludes them from taking part in contests once they reach the age limit. This year we have several "year end" players who will be leaving us. We thank them for their dedication, talent, and enthusiasm, and wish them all the best for whatever they choose to do in the future.
Also, Charlotte P (horn).
