Thank You

Thank you to all the competing bands and soloists, the judges, the supervisors and other helpers, and all our sponsors and supporters who made the contest such a success!  It was fantastic to host eight bands in our new ASB Theatre Marlborough, and 72 solo and party events.

We hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did. You will see tabs for band and solo/party events results across the top of the page. Well done to all contestants and congratulations to all place winners!

Those bands that didn't collect their music, judges comments and certificates will have them posted out this week.

With 200+ people in town, we were impressed that we only had one piece of lost property handed in - if you are missing a pale grey size L sweatshirt, please contact us.

Many thanks to all for your participation, integrity and honest competition - we look forward to seeing you all again in Westport next July for the 2017 NMWCBBA Contest.

Kind regards
Brian and Bronwyn
