Heat Challenges Band at Credit Union Pageant

It was always going to be a test for the band and all the participants of the 2009 Credit Union Pageant in Adelaide’s city streets, with forecasters tipping 43 degrees C for the Saturday 14th November 2009 event. .......and 43 degrees it was!

The band were thankful to Josiah and Jonathan Clayton from the Hahndorf Youth Band, for travelling along side the band during the fell length of the parade with mobile ice trolleys and water bottles! Their efforts saved the day!
