EHDA could not run all our competitions so successfully without the help of many volunteers.
Everyone needs to take an active part; we cannot continue to leave this up to a few committed people!
Morning competition set up – post signage where necessary, set up chairs, tables, speakers and any other equipment as requested by the competition secretary in all areas used for the competition.
Registration/Admission – ensure competitors have their current ScotDance card and provide them their competitor number for the competition. Collect admission and/or program costs or any other charges or reimbursements necessary.
Lineup – the lineup volunteer will lineup dancers accordingly, lead dancers to the stage placing them appropriately if needed and inform the judge of the last set of dancers in the group.
Runner – collects the judge’s sheets, in a timely manner, after each class of dancers is complete and delivers them directly to the scrutineers.
Scrutineer – compiles the judge’s marks on specific scrutineering computer software. Scrutineers must be knowledgeable regarding highland marking rules in order be able to compile judges marks manually if necessary. Training on this role must be attained prior to signing up for it.
Announcer – in both the morning and afternoon, the announcer will welcome everyone, introduce the judges and pipers, call dancers to their appropriate platforms to dance, announce callbacks and results and broadcast any special announcements required.
Afternoon competition take down and clean up – remove posted signage, take down chairs, tables, speakers and any other equipment as requested by the competition secretary as well as general cleanup of garbage and items left behind in all areas used for the competition.
Update ScotDance application – this volunteer will set up the ScotDance mobile application with all applicable competition information prior to the competition and then post results after the competition.
Assistant to the Competition Secretary – this person assists the Competition Secretary wherever needed especially in helping ensure the judges and pipers are looked after in regards to beverages and lunch.
