Yeah, I think I can.   Let me know what the set list is.  I think I might know where all my sheet music is.

Hi Wayne:
The OMTAAMB concert at Pioneer Courthouse square is at 3pm on May 17 as well, so I won't be able to be in attendance.

Sorry,

Mike Street-Tuba

Wow. That is a huge schedule conflict that affects me as well. No trumpet/no tuba would make this parade difficult. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly.

Sorry that I'm just replying to this.  That day was questionable for me anyway, so I vote, "No" to marching on 5/17.

I'm not sure that even with all 8? Of us there we'd be much of a marching band. 
By the way I'm back to the sax. Eva and I joined the Vancouver community concert band. We're having a lot of fun!

WAYNO.
