2014 DCA Winter Meeting Report
The 2014 DCA Winter Meeting is complete! Many positive things were accomplished and will change the face and scope of DCA as we move into the future. Much of the meeting revolved around the Rules Congress and changes were adopted for the 2015 season.
The benefits of the proposed 6 judge panel versus the current 7 judge panel was debated. The voting members unanimously agreed to keep the 7 judge panel. Several other rule changes were adopted including but not limited to:
• The Percussion Judge will now be in the box and off the field.
• Guard members can now enter the field to set up at the same time as the pit without the clock starting.
• DCA will now allow keyboard synthesizers, amplification of voice, pre-recorded speech, and sampled sound effects.
