New Zealand Police cop National Championship
Dunedin, New Zealand – March 10, 2007 – The New Zealand Police Pipe Band won the New Zealand Pipe Band Championship under sunny skies against a field of four other Grade 1 bands. Still reeling from the sudden death of the band’s bass drummer, Jock MacKenzie, Manawatu Scottish decided not to take part in the contest.
New Zealand Police won the March, Strathspey & Reel event and finished second in the Medley competition, while Dalewool Aukland & District won the Medley and was second in the MSR. The New Zealand system uses total points tallied from judges’ marks, and New Zealand Police took straight firsts in piping.
1st New Zealand Police
2nd Dalewool Auckland & Districts
3rd Canterbury Caledonian Society
4th Hamilton Caledonian Society
5th City of Wellington
