15 Freeway Closures

Significant Traffic and Closures are expected on the 15 Freeway between the 215 and 10 Freeways in Fontana, Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario.

Please plan accordingly and allow for extra travel time.   It is best to have an alternate route to the show site to avoid the closures.  However,  these alternate routes and detours will be VERY congested and lengthy.

The show will proceed as scheduled and unfortunately alternate performance times will not be permitted due to the size and number of ensembles scheduled to perform.

2017 Announcement Process/Script

Announcement Procedure
• Prior to the ensemble entering the floor to setup, the Timing and Penalty judge will announce the start of the interval time to you. During this time, music will be played through the PA system.
• As your ensemble is setting up, the Timing and Penalty judge will periodically announce the setup time to the director. The Timing and Penalty judge will also monitor the judges to be sure they are ready for the start of the performance. During this time, music will be played through the PA system.
• If at any time the judges are not ready, the interval time will be suspended and the ensemble will be notified of the suspension of the interval time by the Timing and Penalty judge.
• If the ensemble has any pre-show music, the house music will be faded out at the start of the pre-show music.  Please inform the T&P judge if pre-show music is used.
• When the ensemble is ready, the director will notify the Timing and Penalty judge and he/she will cue the announcer. The music will be faded out and the announcer will say:
Please welcome from (city and state/country), (name of ensemble).
Performing their program (program title), The American Drum Line Association is proud to present (name of ensemble).”
• At the conclusion of the performance, the announcer will say:
“(Name of ensemble) from (city and state/country), under the direction of (director’s name).”
Music will fade in as the ensemble leaves the floor.  Announcer will make no other announcements related to the ensemble.
• Ensembles must plan on this announcement as part of their interval time.

Season Passes and e-Adjudicate

You may also add Season Passes at the time of your ensemble registration until January 1.   Season passes provide for entry to all events and are good idea for those parents and drivers that will be going to every show with you.  Remember, you receive 6 (Six) Staff wristbands at each show and only performers can use performer wristbands.  Season Passes will also be available outside of ensemble registration until January 1 should you like to purchase them after you register your ensemble.   Pre-sale Season Passes will be available for purchase via TicketLeap.  After January 1, Season Passes will only be available for purchase at the show sites.

e-Adjudicate sessions will again be available at the time of registration this year.   This is a great way to get early feedback and reads before going to the Evaluation Clinic or your first show.

Semis and Championships Qualifications

To qualify for Semis/Champs you must attend One (1) regular season show.  The deadline for Semis Registration is March 10.  Jr, Novice and B will compete on Saturday – Concert, A, Open and World on Sunday.  The number of ensembles advancing to Championships from each division will depend on the number of ensembles in each division – more information will be available in March.

Percussion Championships will take place on a single day for all divisions on either the 29th or the 30th of April.   The final date will be announced as soon as a site is confirmed.
