    I think if a competition involves the designers to adhere to the same set
    of parameters then blind should be mandatory. I have attended 3 events, two
    were Iron Driver and one DIY/NY with several categories. In the case of Iron Driver
    I felt the blind aspect definetly leveled the playing field to just the sound and really
    added to the intrique of which one was playing. Also no one was able to identify
    thier own design. At the other event where there were different catgories it did not
    seem to matter being able to see them, people judged on SQ as the priority.
    We did that as you say last year, but it doesn't always have to be that way. SQ is always
    the priority, but looks do matter in the end.

    InDIYana 2008 had a 'show of hands' vote, just as last year went, and was a head-to-head challenge setup.
    Last year was a Blind competition with stated parameters and limits, and I think it was well received. Fallout seemed to be minimal really without much post-buzz after the fact.

    So- I just don't feel the stress of the setup is worthwhile for this year, and I'm going to take it a bit easier. Am I not allowed to make the event less stressful to run? This is something that the attendees may not grasp entirely if/until they host one for themselves, but these are indeed a LOT of work and time to make successful. It was a lot more work for the blind setup last year, and I just don't think I want to do that again this year.

    Later,

    I would much rather go into May vs March personally.

    Okay, In May we have 16/17th available and 23/24th available. I don't want to do the 23/24, as the 24th is my wedding anniversary.

    So- we have:
    18/19th in April (Easter weekend)
    16/17th in May

    Does anyone prefer March? I'd like to not go that early as that leaves less time for preparations.
    It looks like the 16/17th in May will likely have to do.
    Any objections?

    Did I say they were clones? Did I say you had to comply? You can bring a project that does not fit in the theme criteria, and still get your speaker demoed, but it just won't be in the challenge sector. Even I make designs with LR4 acoustic slopes. I just would like entrants for the themes to do something different than their normal routine. This makes it a bit more fun.

    I mean- it's my event planning, so I guess I get to make the theme entail what I would like to try, right?
    Just explore your imagination a bit. I did not say you were limited to the short list I gave. There are more options.

    So- You are welcome to not try new things,

    Okay, In April, the 18/19 are available. I believe that is Easter weekend.

    8-13 is Vera Bradley.


    So- I wonder what is open in May....
    I'll be in touch,

    I'm just trying to get people to experiment outside of the perpetual LR4 machine. And yes- I know- "SXO's are for masochists." is still written in my notebook from your seminar. ;)

    I like to get people to try new things....
