Beginning with the Atlantic Division contest in Cherry Hill, NJ, the Mid-Atlantic District will be using a new system for admission to the auditorium and stage. Admission to all events will be by WRIST BAND only. A wrist band must be displayed at the ballroom door and before entrance to the stage for competitors. The wrist bands will be provided along with the printed tickets. Printed tickets will be used only to identify seat location.
The wrist bands are being employed to simplify and speed up the process of getting into the ballroom and eliminate the need for competitors to have to remember to carry a ticket in their costume/stage-wear. No more trying to remember where you put your ticket, digging through pockets, rummaging through a purse, or running back to your room . . . just raise your hand as you pass the Host Chapter usher at the ballroom door or the door to the warm-up room.
When you put the wrist band on make sure it is snug enough so it wont fall off. The wrist bands are non-removable colored paper (Tyvek) bands and are intended to be worn the entire weekend. The bands are water-proof, will last the entire weekend, and can only be removed by cutting them. If for some reason a wrist band tears or breaks you can return the broken pieces for a replacement. You must return the original wristband to receive a replacement.
