An age bonus will be added to the voluntary routine only. For each age group, 0.1 added for each year over the start age of the group. (i.e. a 55 year will get a 0.5 bonus). If two age groups are merged the higher age range will get 0.3 plus the age bonus.

The Committee would also like to run a Synchro Competition on the same day to make it an all-day event for the region. The synchro competition will be based on the same format as the Dragons TC use for their competitions;
All groups, dependant on numbers, competitors can be mixed age, sex and ability, set routine twice. Grades: no tariff given in any grade. Grades may be placed together depending on numbers.
Both The Veterans and Synchro Competitions can only run if there is enough demand from the clubs in the region. So please could you e-mail your provisional numbers for each competition to [antibot mailto=” [email protected]”] by the 28th June 2012 so that the venue can be booked accordingly.
On the AGM front, nomination forms for the new committee will be e-mailed out to all Clubs in the region no later than 10th August 2012.
