The Gold Coast Marathon 2023

A big thank you to all volunteers who helped at the refreshment station and also those who ‘played’ a vital part in motivating the runners; The Band!

A very successful event thanks mainly to Michelle who was simply brilliant at organising us! We all had a great time!

Here are a few photos that were taken (some turned out a bit ‘cheesy’, sorry, but that’s just how the ‘muffins‘ crumble…)

The joint concert with Tweed Coast Band was a tremendous success!

The Tweed Coast Band kicked off the evening with some very enjoyable and well-known favourites, followed by Benowa Brass showing off their considerable progress.
The evening culminated with Surfers Paradise Brass playing a blend of exciting and foot-tapping music merged with some beautiful songs from the classics.

Last rehearsal before the Nationals (apart from the additional one on Easter Saturday in Newcastle).  I think we will peak perfectly!

Sectional rehearsals for the Nationals begin in earnest starting with the cornet section!

Our Annual Band AGM went smoothly as always and we had the pleasure of the company of The Honourable John-Paul Langbroek, Rob Molhoek MP and Councillor Brooke Patterson.

First rehearsal of the year went well.  I think the chops of those who are preparing to play solos in the Nationals fared very well, and a few other dedicated members also!
