Signup - DC18 - Dragon Classic '18 Premiere

sohs Jan '18  /  edited Feb '18
Hello and welcome to the 2018 Dragon Classic Premiere! This is the kick-off competition to the DC18 circuit, and will most likely be the most competitive Dragon Classic competition yet (depending on sign-ups). Having seen amazing growth in competition participation and drill design in general on this site, it would be fitting to add extra awards (not affecting placements) and possible rewards for outstanding shows. Therefore the signup will be slightly longer than normal in order to have time to get rewards on hand and ready at the Finals Awards Ceremony this time around. Anyway, enough chit-chat. I cannot wait to kick-off the DC18 circuit, and by competing, you will help make this circuit continue to grow and improve! Sign-up information is as follows:

*Don't want to compete? No problem! Submit your show as an OPEN CLASS group and I will still evaluate your show and give you feedback on your program submitted privately.

**Note: Not competing as an Open Class group does not mean you cannot request full feedback on your submitted show, I will always be open to giving full feedback to any shows submitted.


What I need from competitors:
- Your band/corps name.
- Your show title.
- Your competing class.
- A link to your show/program.
- Any questions you have for me that I will gladly answer!

i.e -
Stargazers Drum and Bugle Corps
"The Founding"
Class 3A (AAA will also be accepted)


Class System:
Class A: 0-40 Design Rating
Class AA: 40.1-55 Design Rating
Class AAA: 55.1-70 Design Rating
Class AAAA: 70.1+ Design Rating
Open Class: Any Design Rating (Non-Competing Class)

*Updated: 2/6/18

*Preliminary shows are due by: 2/17/18
*Preliminary awards are tentatively planned for: 2/18/18


Judging Rubric:

Visual Effect - 20

Best of luck to ALL competing groups!

Due to newly fore-seen conflicts, the preliminary deadline has now been EXTENDED to February 17th, 2018. (2/17/18), and the preliminary awards ceremony/finalist announcments will be on February 18th, 2018. (2/18/18). I apologize for making the anticipated awards ceremony an even longer wait than it originally was and for any inconveniences that might result from this extension.
