Competitors' Orientation Meeting, Friday, June 20 at 1:30 pm. This meeting is required of all competitors and you must bring photocopies of proof of age to the meeting (if you did not provide electronic copies when registering). Procedures will be reviewed and afterwards, there will be a brief tour of the Preliminary Round venue.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Competitors who do not upload appropriate age verification with their registration are required to bring documentation to the competitor's orientation meeting. Competitors who do not present appropriate materials will be allowed to perform for evaluation by the jury, but will not be eligible for advancing to the finals of the competition.
If you encounter a travel delay, which prevents you from attending the meeting, you will need to provide proof upon arrival of earlier travel plans. Should you have another event in conflict with the competitors' orientation meeting, which is not a sponsored GFA event, the competitor will only be permitted to perform for evaluation and will be ineligible to compete for competition prizes.
Any changes to your submitted program may be made at this meeting, after which programs may not be altered.
