I fail to understand why the judging categories were grouped to generate rankings for "set design", "team unity", and "overall impact", looking at the sheet my perception is that it only serves to obfuscate the final placings.

When judging, it's nice to see these stats and make deliberation points from the premise of "we as a panel thought this" and point to the numbers.
From a spectators view, I like seeing what teams scored better or worse in specific areas. It also gives us some light into what teams specific judges liked and didn't like.

Suggestion for this sheet: Instead of listing teams in alphabetical order, please sort everything by rank so your judges and we don't have to constantly look back and forth trying to figure that out.

Rubric: I don't like seeing execution elements lumped in with design elements. They're two separate things. "design" has everything to do with what the team/captains did for the weeks/months prior designing the set (choreo/formations/mix etc.) Execution/unity elements have everything to do with the performance on that day. I'd suggest moving choreo execution and formation execution into the unity section.

To clarify: There isn't anything wrong with the sections. It just will make things easier to move through as a judge. One can think about the design elements, then about the execution elements, then the overall impact. Instead of jumping back and forth.

Wanted to give you gals on DCBC a shoutout for a solid first time comp! I also spoke to one of the Detroit Folk Arts guys who made mention that they have seen an influx of girls coming to their academy after their parents saw that RDR was a thing. The impact seems to be spreading far past what you guys can probably see.

Much love and good luck next year!
