--------New Year, More work
Well after a very difficult time we had last year all seemed to come good at the end with the band having a great time at The Welsh Indoor Championships. Maybe the result didnít go our way but we achieved the best result that our band could have asked for and thatís marching again!!!
It was great to see some new faces in the band and some old faces re-join. This enabled us to build a very strong band from front to back.
This time of year is very difficult for most people to get motivated, as we are not out on competition, it just seems as though its practice after practice. But this is probably the most important time of year as it prepares you for the season ahead.
I hope this season is going to be a successful one, just like the seasons Zodiacs have been used to in years gone by. We have got a really good set of individuals at Zodiacs now with a winning mentality.
Well hereís to a great season ahead & hopefully some success on the arena.
Well done Zodiacs at The Welsh National Indoor Championships.
All the hard work payed off. You were tremendous.
Now its time to get ya heads down for next season display (starting this Sunday!)
Can I just thank our friends at Sant Nirankari Satsang Bhawan for the use of their facilities for our practices. It is very much appreciated by every member of Zodiacs Marching Band.
World Championships 2005
The World Championships were held at King George V playing fields in Bloxwich this years where over 40 bands attended the 2 day event. The main winners of the day were Div 1 Alfreton Ambers, Div 2 Royal Premiers & Junior division Crook Town Grenadiers. Well done to all bands & everyone who won their individual sections.
Watch out next year WE'll BE BACK ;o)

I just want to say a big thank you to Donna, Tomeka & Tony for all their hard work & commitment to the band.

I also wanna say a huge thanks to Donna's Dad, Tony for all the help & support that he has given to the band & a massive thanks for driving our coach for all of those years.
