Formation of Association

As a consequence of this, the New Zealand Marching Association was formed in 1944 and uniform rules, covering the conduct of competitions, were adopted. New Zealand was divided into 20 “centres”, each of which controls competitions in its respective district and is represented upon the executive in Wellington. The New Zealand Marching Association now has 4,300 members. One team, Blair Atholl, of Dunedin, has visited the United Kingdom, and several teams have visited Australia and Fiji. The sport has now spread to Australia and a number of teams have been formed in the several States.

The New Zealand Marching Association publishes a Marching Handbook, an annual March Plan booklet, and a monthly magazine, Quick March.
