Smile Re-introduction

Greetings.
Although I have been a member on since 2008 - I have not really been on here much.

I was advised by another friendly user (thanks for the tip) that it would be good to re-introduce myself so people can have an opportunity to get to know me - .

Well I am Ski – rapidly reaching 50 years of age. Originally from South Wales, Ex-Royal Navy Submariner – I now teach electronic engineering to aerospace apprentices. I play the saxophone and now own 5 – Tenor, Alto and a few Sopranos. I am also a high level Archery Coach and the head coach at Accrington Archery Academy, based at Accrington Academy.

I have also recently joined the East Lancashire Concert Band based at the Civic Theatre in Oswaldtwistle.

I try to be open and honest as possible, but sometimes get things wrong. I believe that my purpose in life is to see others progress and to help people get there, hence the reason I teach and coach.

Feel free to say hello, keep dropping me messages, hints and tips.

Hi Ski, I've been a member of Accy web since 2004. I haven't posted very much but love reading what everyone else has to say. Lots of genuine, helpful members. Good luck with the concert band.

Re: Re-introduction

Hello Vecrra - thank you for the greeting - I was amazed on how friendly the band members were and how they do not mind what level you are at when joining - they were really encouraging. There was also a good range of ages from young to some quite senior members.

Stanislaw was a good Polish name there are many with Stanislawski as a surname.

Mine is Suchorzewski. - pretty cool for a welsh man -
