  • Judge A – Good general show, interesting use of colour combination, impressive finale.
  • Judge B – Good height, good colour and pattern. A bit slow at a third into performance. Very good finale.
  • Judge C – Some lack of symmetry in terms of height and star duration. Some effects RHS didn’t appear LHS – Deliberate? Gaps in early stages. Closing very busy, very Chinese. Entertaining.
  • Judge D – Very colourful consistent display. Lots going on in the sky. Lots of wow factor. Popular with the crowds.
  • Judge E – Captivating. Really held my attention for the duration of the performance.

        TEAM SCORE   46.67
  • Judge A – Slow start, very repetitive sequences, improved as display continued.
  • Judge B – Only two maroons at start, none at finish. Some symmetry adrift. Good finale. Some pauses.
  • Judge C – Better symmetry in many instances but moments lacking. This achieved using faster functioning Romans firing higher – this was a good move! Some more varied material but then sequences dragged on – false stops? Good colours. Hectic ending but exciting. No end maroons unless they were lost in the mix.
  • Judge D – Disappointed. Not much of a wow factor. Colour poor.
  • Judge E – High impact, powerful and impressive ending. Very colourful performance.
  • Judge F – A fantastic ending. Good use of sound effects.

  • Judge A – Gappy start but gradually picking up momentum. Good finish.
  • Judge B – Good design. Good colour and height. Good flow; hardly any pauses. Excellent finale.
  • Judge C – Some better colour combinations and colour generally. Interesting pale yellow and pale green strobe. Better start and immediate pace. Combined use of shells with Romans masked any shortcomings in symmetry – consequently symmetry much better. Good ending – maroons? Obviously Chinese, sadly, but a better show.
  • Judge D – Bit slow in places. Lots of bangs, good colours. Good wow factor. Popular with the crowds.
  • Judge E – Creative, plenty of variety and colour. Really enjoyed it. The end was particularly impressive.
  • Judge F – A good performance from start to finish. Lots of big shells used.

  • Judge A – Good start, slight loss of momentum. Good use of colour generally but building to good finish.
  • Judge B – Good design colour and height. No pauses. No maroons seen to finish.
  • Judge C – Technical issues with fusing, L-R misfires on alternate sequences. Failing these, symmetry would have been very good. Some innovative material- red strobe tails. Some good colours. Well-paced from start.
  • Judge D – Constant display. Lots of colour and activity in the sky. Brilliant display and popular with the crowd.
  • Judge E – Amazing display – great effects and really vivid colour. Held my attention.
  • Judge F – Slow start but soon became a very creative and powerful display. Great ending with lots of activity in the sky.

  • Judge A – Splendid start, good colour combinations. Slight dropping of performance but picked up to a sound finish.
  • Judge B – Good design and colour (blue!). Very good finale. Lots of noise!
