Guard I&E  UPDATED 2/21/17

Directors--

 
Since we are hosting the Guard I&E competition during championships inside the main Civic Center arena this year, the BOD made a few minor amendments to the original guidelines that were previously sent. Please make note of those changes and feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
 
The major differences are as follows:
(1) Schools/units are limited to 4 entries--regardless of type (solos, duets, etc). Ensembles are still limited to a four performer maximum.
 
(2) Because of time limitations, performances should not exceed one minute. Performers need to be able to "set up" in under a minute as well. We are looking to run at 2-3 minute intervals to fit in as many participants as possible.
 
(3) Should your unit/school wish to submit more than 4 entries, those that exceed the limit will be placed on a wait list (in order of receipt) and will be added if/when time allows. This will be delegated on a first come, first served basis. Those on the wait list who are not selected to compete will have their entry fees returned.
 
(4) The deadline has been extended to March 11th (postmarked or turned in to Stephanie or Cortney) --the Denham Springs show. All rules regarding fees/forms still stand.
 

The LMCGPC is pleased to announce that we will continue with the Guard Individual and Ensemble Competition this year. The more exciting news is that it will be held AT circuit championships! Our plan is to have soloists and ensembles perform during the breaks after their perspective class. For example: Cadet and Novice units would perform at their scheduled times. During the break between Novice and Regional A, we would have the Cadet / Novice soloists and small ensembles perform - in the same performance order as their units to allow for maximum prep time. 

If you have students interested, please read the information below and have them fill out the entry form. Again, the event is scheduled to take place at the Thibodaux Civic Center in conjunction with Circuit Championships on April 1st, 2017. Please email Stephanie Burroughs with any questions. Forms and fees should be sent to Cortney Lyon to the address stated on the form or hand delivered at any LMCGPC event before March 4.
