I like the format! Competition was on time and finals were completely different from perlims. More to come later, im so tired right now.

So, I am wondering how this went... did people like the format? Did it make things run on time or (gasp) early?

Competitions have tried other restrictions in the past, limits on number of performers, "no dance" zones, etc.

Any ideas on a final schedule for this one?

This gives examples, but doesn't mandate that it has to be the opener, ballad, and closer. So if there are costuming issues or whatever, I imagine a group could select their opener, second song, and perhaps ballad. I don't know, just wanted to clear that up.



And the website says that the prelim schedule is in 20 minute blocks.

Well, to be clear, the actual language from McKendree's website is:



QUOTE

You will perform only 3 pieces, such as opener, ballad, and closer.

I personally think it should just be "Pick three numbers to do from your show."

lol, we open in Long Dresses and close in a Tap Costume... I would Die laughing at my girls attempting to do this format. Bless their hearts, we'd be a disaster. Can you just Do like Opener, Ballad, 3rd Number? And Save your closer for later if costume restrictions wont allow such a style?


For most Midwest groups, the ballad is the third number.

So not to be another smart a** but technically shouldn't this be labeled as a "regional" competition?




QUOTE (Patrickmon @ Mar 05 2015, 08:54 PM) *


Ehh. I know Grand River has always called their competition national as well.


I could be wrong, Patrick, but I don't think Joe was referring to the depth of the competition which is similar (to a lesser extent) to Grand River, but rather pointing out the oxymoron of "Midwest" and "Nationals" in the same sentence. Obviously Midwest refers to a specific region while Nationals encompasses all of the regions of the U.S. Thus, you can't really be both at the same time. Although while geographically correct, I imagine the McKendree "Midwest Regional" doesn't have quite the *umph* to it.

It's similar to when someone referred to Elkhorn South's competition as "Nebraska Show Choir Nationals". Um, no. What they were trying to say is it was a collection of Nebraska's finest show choirs, but that would inherently be a STATE contest not national. Ultimately, folks don't use "Nationals" correctly.

Since there is 30 minutes between each choir, why not do the whole show?

LOL, i'm loving these comments. All I can say is, my group will be competing at this competition, and (knock on wood) I HOPE we won't have any issues with our show. I mean, that's how we learned our show this year, opener, ballad, closer and then later on added the second and fourth number.

i'm also looking forward to seeing how other groups will adjust to fit this unique perlims.
