Last Year SABA supported the Great Cycle Challenge which helped raise funds for child cancer research, this was a fantastic opportunity to raise money for a charity directly affecting South Australian band members and way which bandies can share other interests. A quick glance at facebook will reveal more photos and pre/post rehearsal meals and drinks than actual rehearsals! Marion City Band has a dedicated netball team called the CORNETballs (pictured) that compete every Sunday (lets hope they dont get into the grand final becuase its on the same weekend as the states). Fundraising events are a good way of bringing playing and non-playing band members together, movie nights, sporting events, City to Bay Fun Run, Bay to Birdwood, Cheesefest, vintage celebrations in the Barossa, family holidays just to name a few of the soial events that we see bandies enjoying every week.
If your band enjoys more than concerts and competitions let us know, post to the SABA facebook page, submit an article to [email protected] We would love to hear what SA band members are up to.
