Palmerston North Sq Day Pipe Band Contest, 2010

As always, Palmy North put on a fine day of rain and gale force winds – perfect weather for bagpipes and drums!

The Auckland and District Pipe Band won the contest overall, with two competitive performances. The other Grade 1 bands also competed fiercely for the other three spots.  Canterbury Caledonian Pipe Band won the ensemble award and also took the drumming title.

In Grade 2, Manawatu No.2 got straight firsts from all  judges with Hamilton Caledonian Pipe Band finishing second.  This is set to be a great contest at the Nationals in Timaru, with the addition of a few other Grade 2 bands including Invercargill Pipe Band and St Andrews College Pipe Band.
