2018 Championships Program

This year there is no charge for the program and it is available electronically at 2018 ADLA Championship Program.   Keep it handy on your phone/device and be sure to visit our partner/sponsors sites while viewing the program.

Announcement Process Script and Information

Announcement Procedure – It is important you update your ensemble show and demographic information in advance of show day.  This will insure the correct information is announced.   Additionally, show information will be available to judges for their reference.
• 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 the 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 to be used.
• When the ensemble is ready, the director will notify/queue 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).
(Brief Pause / Audience Acknowledgment )
Performing their program (program title), The ADLA 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.
