Bredon Hill Cup
Well Done Everyone!
The judges have now completed the difficult task of selecting the finalists from the host of on line entries. The list of finalists is below. There were so many great entries, we feel really sorry that we couldn't include everyone in the finals. There were some great entries that we just couldn't squeeze in. If you entered and you aren't in the finals, your entry is just as valuable. Look out for your certificate of merit and your competition momento, coming soon.
Unfortunately this year we couldn't replicate the atmosphere of previous years with all of the competitors squeezed in together, lots of crush, partition walls between competitions being knocked over and events spilling onto each other's areas. But after the fantastic response to our on-line heats, we still want the finalists to be able to perform their entries in person. To do this, we are organising in-person finals with a Covid Secure format that allows all the finalists to take part in person in front of the judges, in a safe and legal way. These will take place, subject to the lockdown being over, at Broom in Warwickshire on the afternoon of Saturday, 5th December. Detailed arrangements are being made with the finalists by e-mail.
The finals will help us decide who wins each of the competitions for their age group - Best Moves, Traditional Patterns, Creative Patterns and Synchronised Patterns. And the results from those, together with the results from the heats, will determine our seven trophies:
The Bredon Hill Cup, for the individual competitor with the most points
Pee Wee Champion
The Grasshoppers' Trophy, for the art with the most points from our five arts
The Ray Howe Trophy, for outstanding performance
We can see already that all are going to be very close competitions, especially the Bredon Hill Cup and the Grasshoppers' Trophy. As usual, it looks like it won't be possible to tell who has won until the very last minute.
Here are the finalists.
