Pipe Band Nationals Success
The Pipe Band placed second nationally in their 4A grade, behind the ILT City of Invercargill pipe band, at this weekend’s National Pipe Band Championships in Rotorua.
This was after getting very solid second places in both the set and medley sections. The bass and tenor section came top of the grade. The band also came second in the street march, led by Lee Nicholl – an impressive 13-year old visiting Drum Major from Northern Ireland – second equal in dress and third in the juvenile section. These are fantastic results against some very strong opposition, so congratulations and very well done to the competition band boys and supporting team of musical director Mrs Horsburgh, Mr Jackson and Mr Giffen.
The band is currently recruiting. If you’re interested in joining a winning musical team, talk to Mr Leslie or Mrs Horsburgh.
