Special Sub-Topic: UK Winterguard
|What is the minimum to maximum number of people allowed in a winterguard that wants to compete?|
6 min- 30 max. This is a rule although it may be waived by the DCUK referee.
|Each arena MUST have a professional sounds system that can play both cassette tapes and Compact Discs.|
True. They must also have adequate speakers, and have to be tested before the performance.
|What is the maximum amount of time on the floor alloted for both the cadet and junior classes?|
7 minutes. Both classes have no minimum amount of time.
|Is this a real rule?: All rifles must be simulated.|
Yes. Yes it is actually a real rule, and the same rule applies to sabers and they must also be rendered safe.
|How many points are taken off if the national colours are dropped in a performance?|
1. The national colours must be treated with dignity and respect at all times, and may not be used for display purposes.
|If you drop a piece of equipment you may not pick it up but must pretend to have the equipment or face a point penalty.|
false. That is so not true. If you drop your flag/rifle/saber you may retrieve it without receiving a penalty.
|Are pyrotechnics allowed in a performance?|
No. Pyrotechnics, animals, pressured canisters, smoke or dry ice machines, and electrical or battery operated equipment are not allowed in a performance.
|The minimum size of a ______ is 8" x 12".|
flag. The material must be at least that size with a pole length of at least two feet.
|If a guard has problems with their cassette tape or CD in their performance they are given a chance to do what?|
Withdraw and compete later.. It is included in the rules so as to give all of the guards a fair chance. If the tape or CD does not work in practice however it is up to the guard to have working music by their performance time.
|Guard members are directed not to aproach the spectator seats during a performance because it is rude to the spectators and to the performing guard.|
True. Makes sense doesn't it? The spectators are there to watch the guards not the guard members that are in the spectator seating. Hope you enjoyed my quiz!
