Friendly edit.

The line up of classifications should be

Novice B
Novice A
Intermediate
Advanced
Scholastic
Open

Looks like you have Intermediate and Advanced switched.

Thanks for posting this. :lol:

Sorry, i only know what it is for upper divisions. But it always says the standard times on the sheet you get from Rowland (the one with penalties etc.). If you have an old one from past shows you can get your hands on, take a look.

Got this from the Penalty Sheet sent to us from Rowland for our show:

Show Length: Novice A & B 2 ½ min – Max 7 ½ min
Standard Equipment Performance Time: One member of Novice A & B must perform with standard equipment of a minimum of 1 ½ minutes

I teach at Tokay Hs of Lodi and we registered for Novice A.

We didn't even know there was different time limits for the lower groups, so we wrote a 4:10 show.

Our show is about 6 minutes, but we might cut it shorter... not sure yet only 2 more rehearsals until San Mateo.

Wow I didn't realize the new times weren't posted. Peaches did an excellent job informing us...you know, maybe look-up the score sheets online and see if that will answer any other questions you have.
