... *twitch*... thank you for that note of relief, but... well... next time show videos of cute kittens. Nobody should have a problem with thatUhh, yeah, that would be my warped sense of humor and a desparate need to kill time as one last event was scored and entered. That video has NOTHING to do with the real Sounds of Music.
I'd second that. In fact, even for wind players, the rules seem to favor brass players--the range is very low for a flute, and reed instruments are relatively hard to make, but the range is similar to the bottom part of a trumpet's or the upper part of a trombone's.It would be disadvantageous to people just coming into the event next year in comparison to the veterans if you DON'T adjust the ranges or perhaps the categories or some other instrument requirement. I vote replacing wind with strings, and perhaps making percussion treble, and then strings bass. My reasoning is that some people also have a natural disadvantage if they can't already play a wind instrument, so they wouldn't have the breath support. As for the flipping of ranges, it makes it fair for percussion, too.We have a general policy of trying to make at least one significant change to each returning event. What specific changes would you make to the rules?
