WCH informs – accompanying program “Master class of demanding elements with baton”

WCH informs – accompanying program “Master class of demanding elements with baton”

The majorette days include an accompanying program that focuses on elements of a high degree of baton work. The lecturer is Jonatan Orlov, a student at the University of Winnipeg, Winnipeg, Canada. Jonatan holds many wand awards, working with coaches from Europe, Japan and Canada.

Mrs. Olga Orlová, the mother of Jonathan, accidentally said that Jonathan will be in Europe, specifically in Prague, at the time of the WCH. Such a coincidence is worth taking advantage of, the baton leads primarily in the occupancy of individual disciplines and age categories.

The lesson will be held on Thursday, August 22, 2019, in the sports hall Královka. It is free of charge for WCH participants; The program is limited in time, the start is set after the end of the competition day at approximately 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm so that the participants can get to the accommodation in time, because the following Friday is the 4th WCH competition day.

The purpose is to develop the ability of majorettes to work with the baton and to enrich the majorette sport with other elements. It will be great if it succeeds at least in part. WCH is the best opportunity.

WCH informs – Final form of starting lists

WCH informs – Final form of starting lists

This year has become almost a puzzle for starting lists. The new application for processing results allows clubs to no longer need to fill in entries, but advancing from competitions where QScore has been applied are automatically added to the start list. Some clubs may have overlooked the fact that the formations are no longer entering and only have to check the completeness of the formations (already entered) and correct the names lists (cases where the deployment of substitutes or reduction in the number of members in the formation). Such clubs re-commissioned the formation, duplicity and confusion in the continually monitored numbers for contest preparation. Not only duplication, but fixes that were reported after the application was closed (deadline 31.07.) Overwhelmed the administrators.

Clubs from abroad do not have a more modern way of signing in through the application, most applications sent not only in the “old” way, but also late. Lack of access to the application can then make no changes or corrections.

The ranking WMC Cup competition as the “forerunner” of the actual championship brought a problem to the start lists; some formations, which were meant to start at WMC, mistakenly enrolled in the WCH start list, and the remediation was progressive.

On Tuesday, the program had to be adapted for the upcoming live event to be of interest to television viewers while observing the rules. In addition, this year’s live broadcast installations cannot be performed before the competition day due to time constraints, which required a four-hour pause in the program.

Combination of disciplines or age categories in cases of low number of entered formations was minimal, changing to another day was only in the baton flag group, but the competitors were very helpful.

The administration of entries must be complimented by the solved puzzle of this year’s starting lists.

Royal blue decorated with medals VII. WCH

Royal blue decorated with medals VII. WCH

Medal for VII. World Majorette Sport World Championships await the winner. On the front page (avers) the graphic designer placed the Prague logo, the competition logo and important data such as full title, year and date. The medals are dominated by bows – a ribbon tied into a decorative loop and a real ribbon with a motif of decoration from the edge of the medal, highlighted in the same way as the WCH royal blue logo.

The royal blue represents above all the clarity of the perception of the inner and outer, the understanding and acceptance of the psychic connection that leads to the above-earth empire (sometimes also called the realm of angels). Furthermore, courage and determination to pass through this gate and live one’s own conviction, trust and knowledge. If one accepts this process, neutrality and objectivity becomes a matter of course, because one can see every matter from all sides. Royal Blue also harmonizes our personal motivations, perceptions and expectations, as well as our tendency to hesitate. In times when we need to deal with difficult and persistent matters, it is good to meditate with royal blue.

The back is dominated by the IFMS logo, in a clean space around, the bow replaced the dominant bow tie, a social supplement four centuries old.
