Score Sheets: Score sheets will be available for pickup at the conclusion of prize giving. These are not kept after the event so please ensure you pick-up immediately after prize giving.


music

Auxiliary Input: Music must be played on a Auxiliary Input capable device. It is recommended that you bring TWO HIGH-QUALITY copies of your music to the event. We highly suggest that a coach plays the music for your team and not a participant. This person will be asked to hold onto their own music until the time of performance and to take music back following the performance.

Please do NOT bring CD's or USB's as we do not have a CD player.

Music Interruption: If the fault is due to event equipment or team's music failure - the coach will have to decide within 2 minutes if they would like to perform again. Judging will resume at the point where the music was interrupted. The team will be required to take the stage immediately for the 2nd performance.


coach & vip seating

There is coach seating available at the front of the judges riser. This seating is available for the coaches of the teams that are about to perform. However, if the seats are free you are welcome to sit there, we just ask that you leave the 4 middle seats free for any coaches of the teams that are coming up next.


coach hospitality area

There is coach hospitality area that coaches are welcome to use, it has snacks and refreshments as well as a catered lunch. You are welcome to join us at any time in this area for some time away from the business of competition.
