The New Zealand Pipe Band Championships were once again held in Nelson over the weekend, where bands from around the country (and Australia) came together for what was an incredible two days of competition.
Scots in Spirit would like to extend its congratulations to Canterbury Caledonian Society Pipe Band for winning their sixth consecutive Grade 1 title, as well as all other winning bands and prizewinners across all grades.
We would also like to acknowledge and congratulate all bands and their supporters for participating in the contest and their continued commitment to the pipe band movement in New Zealand. Getting to the standard to compete at a national contest in any grade is no small feat, and takes huge personal dedication from each band member in order to get there.
Well done to the contest organisers for putting together another great National Contest in Nelson.
