I've written about the Minnesota Brass before, both on here and on Facebook, and how much I enjoyed that Winter and Spring of 2013 with them, even though I had to quit during the season. They are looking for players this summer; I want to help them out, in some way. You might be able … Continue reading Minnesota Brass: Horn Line Spots Available!
