10 Apr 1950 The scheduled 1949 Australian championships (the first held in Tasmania) were postponed until this date. Timeline of events: November 1948: Announced that the 1949 championship would be held in Tasmania, the first time held there. Originally scheduled: Venue - York Oval, Launceston commencing 14th November 1949. May 1949: Date changed to 24th-28th December 1949; 25 + bands anticipated to attend, 15 from interstate. 2nd November 1949: Championship abandoned due to poliomyelitis epidemic. 17th December 1949: Approval from Australian Band Council to hold the 1949 championships on the following Easter (8th-10th April 1950). It seems only 3 bands entered (all A Grade and from Victoria; Tasmania had no A Grade bands at the time). The contest opened on Sunday 9th with the quickstep march for A grade; 8 local lower grade bands attended for display only. Monday 10th at 2pm: "A" grade played their test and O/C selections. No lower grade contests were held.
14 Nov 1949 The scheduled 1949 Australian championships event at Launceston, Tasmania was postponed firstly from the week commencing 14th November 1949 to 24th-28th December 1949, then further from there due to an outbreak of poliomyelitis, eventually being held in the following year, over Easter, 10th April 1950. As a result two Australian championship events were held in 1950, one designated for 1949, in April 1950, and one designated for 1950, in October 1950.
