2019 TECA CONTEST RECAPS

1/19 Palmview Colorguard Recaps

September 7, 2018

Registration for 2019 is officially closed!

A huge thank you to all of our members! We're busy organizing everyone's registration data and finalizing the schedules for the upcoming season. The tentative schedule and contest packet for Palmview HS this Saturday are already available. We'll make an announcement if there are any last minute changes.

Directors, while we've removed the ability to add new units or change your contest selections, you are still free to log in and edit your spiel sheets and other basic information. Make sure to give that a quick look before your first contest so we know how we should announce you. If you do need to make any schedule adjustments or other attendance-related changes, please reach out to our webmaster and we'll see what we can do.

We can't wait to see you on the floor!

FAQ

Q. Where can I find the contest information packet, schedule, or critique schedules?

Check out the Schedule for contest packets and attendance. Critique schedules and last minute adjustments will be posted to the homepage.

Q. Where can I update my Spiel Sheet?

Visit the Registration page and edit your unit. We pull spiel sheet data on the morning of each contest, so any changes you make will be announced at your next performance. (Pronunciation guides for tough names are awesome! Also we may edit the content for clarity and length, at the announcer's discretion.)

Q. Where can I view the circuit by-laws, contest rules, and timing requirements for my classification?

These and more can all be found at the Forms page.

Q. Where can I find judges recap sheets, panels, or the full WGI rulebook for each classification?

Head to the Judges area. You'll need to log in first.

Q. Can I advertise my services, or sell gently used items?

Advertisements may be placed on the Classifieds page. To place an ad, please contact TECA Webmaster Nathan Flynt.
