Blenheim Nationals 2018
The band attended their first nationals since Invercargill 2014 under the strong and apt leadership of Shane Foster as MD, and Chris Foster as Drum Major. The band competed across multiple events, with the first being a quartet which finished 4th equal, a result they were happy with after winning in Otago and a podium placing at Canterbury. The bands best placings were 2nd in the hymn, and 2nd in the marching, finishing 7th overall in the B grade. In the marching, the band managed to place 2nd in the B Grade, a very good result that we were proud of. Overall, the band finished 7th in the B Grade, which after 4 years out of National Competition, is a good grounds to build on.
