Southland is well represented at the National Brass Band Champs in Hamilton.
The Ascot Park Hotel band is competing in the A Grade section of the contest.
The event had something of a set back today as rain forced the cancellation of the street march section, always a highlight in these contests.
However event organizer’s quickly came up with a plan B and got several bands to show off their marching skills at then vast Claudelands Arena.
The championships continue tomorrow.
