Re: Is anyone using a phone app to organize band events?

We use Team Snap to keep track of gigs, competitions, special practices, etc. The phone app works fine, as does the web browser version.

Re: BMW Gold for Windows 10 / 64 bit

I just upgraded six weeks ago, works fine.

Once your order is processed, the software and instructions are now a online download, so no need to wait for a box and disk to arrive in the post.

Re: Hornpipe/Jig or Jig/Hornpipe?

FWIW, just had a note from the organizer of the Modesto Games.

This (H/J in Grade 3) was actually a mistake, they are going to offer both Grade 3 Hornpipe and Jig as separate events.

Re: BMW Gold format measure questions

Try playing around with the "space" command (without quotes), repeat as necessary, both before and after the long note. Adjust as necessary.

For example:

space space C_2 space space space
