A friend, who does not have a DCP account, has a good idea for finals. I told him I would share it with the group.
At finals only, add a minute between corps to give the finalists a little extra time in front of the crowd. Call it a curtain call. Allow the audience a little more to time to thank the finalists corps for a season well done.
This adds 12 minutes to the show, so not a big deal. We both felt last night that show end applause was cut off too quickly because the corps has to start the switch within a few seconds of show end.
