Critique for WGI World Championship Groups Only

MEPA will utilize the critique sign-up option available in CompetitionSuite and will close on at 8:30am EST the day of the event. Groups who have signed up will be taken in performance order. Start times are approximate.

Location: Various Locker Rooms (Gather at back of the staging area backstage)
Start Time: Indicated on Logistical Schedule.

Given a single panel and number of performances, if a group does not sign up prior to the deadline in CompetitionSuite, they will NOT be able to walk-up or schedule when they arrive at the event.

Color Guard Music Upload

Directors may upload their performance music in a MP3 or WAV file via CompetitionSuite. Using this system is not required and groups can use their sound device if desired. Instructions on uploading music. CompetitionSuite uploads will shut down on at 11pm EST on the Thursday prior to the event.

Sound Checks

You will be assigned a designated sound check time based on the daily schedule. Given the enormous production of this event, similar to WGI World Championships, sound checks will not be performed in-between performances.
