BOSS SoCal - August 6th, 2016 - Competition Entry Fee


Product Description

August BOSS is the first Southern California BOSS of the 2016 Season! With IGC 2016 quickly approaching, the questions are out. Who are the Legends? Why have I heard so little about IGC 2016? And what’s with all the mystery? The first bits of the mystery will start to unravel at August BOSS. So come out to EmazingLights West Covina to hear more and compete for one of the last chances to earn a spot in Legends.

Last year, BOSS & IGC became a worldwide sensation with the largest amount of glovers from different states (and countries!) ever. It all culminated in a tournament where we had Legends from all over the country with the first ever 2-time IGC winner crowned at the year-end event. This year, we’ve expanded that even further but the biggest changes are still to come.

At the end of this year, gloving competitions will change forever. Start the journey here.

BOSS: Saturday, August 6th 2016 @ The EmazingLights West Covina Store

As the competitive scene has grown, so has the need for a bigger system. This year, we let the community dictate the flow of competitions as we watched, learned and built on what we have. We’re finally ready to start giving you sneak peeks of what we’ve been working on all year but the whole thing won’t be revealed until IGC 2016. In the meantime, get ready to enjoy the year of the community.

Competitive Gloving will change forever at the end of the year and those competing at IGC 2016 will be the first to experience it. Will you be there?

New Score Card

As of May 2014, the Scorecard for BOSS and IGC has been changed to accommodate the new standard of what makes a great gloving light show.

Updated scorecard coming soon!

There are three main categories Execution. Musicality, and Presentation.

 

  1. Execution is separated into tricks/transitions and lose points for poorly executed or repetitive ones.

  2. Musicality points are earned in three ways.

    1. Hitting the drop- 3 points – Glovers must adjust various aspects of their show when the song encounters a dramatic beat change (ex. From build up to drop)

    2. Story- 2 points- This is for showmanship. Glovers must begin and end their show as a show, not a cluster of moves.

    3. Flow – Glovers must do their best to appear as if their show is fluid and routine to the song

  3. Presentation points have three categories.

    1. Cleanliness- 5 Points- Measurement of how clean each glover was during their show

    2. Concept Variety- 5 Points- Measurement of glover’s versatility with different styles

    3. Use of space- 5 Points- Measurement of each glover’s use of their space and awareness of their audience.
