BOSS SoCal - May 16th, 2015 - Competition Entry Fee


Product Description

May BOSS is here already? Dang, that means Gloving season is already halfway done! Before we bring everyone back to SoCal for IGC (International Gloving Championship) in October, we’ve still got a bunch more spots to fill in our annual Legends Tournament bracket. Come out to EmazingLights West Covina on Saturday, May 16 to earn your place among the Legends!

  

Last February in West Covina was an absolute blast. [PM] Cypher and [PM] Rhapsode battled it out in an intense, brotherly championship match, with Rhapsode just barely edging out the win. You better believe Cypher will be back with a vengeance. We’re also following our sponsored glover [AAG] Vex, who came out to the west coast from from Florida and placed respectably in the Top 8. Learning a lot, he then took Miami’s March BOSS by storm and claimed a definitive victory over a very legit [T.V.] Infinite. 

  

The competitive gloving scene has shown an incredible evolution this year, we’re beyond excited to see how it all turns out - you’re not going to want to miss this!

We were blown away by the incredible amount of fire and innovation you guys brought to the competitive scene in 2014. We started the year off by crowning two of our usual suspects as BOSS champions for the second time in their careers: (Ayo?) Boo in February, and then [PM] Rhapsode in April. The following two BOSS competitions made way for some of the lesser-known names, [Team Vivid] Toms and [FIK] Abstrakt dominated the field in July and October respectively.

Finally, we brought it all together for the fourth annual International Gloving Championship (IGC), where an exclusive Tournament of Legends solidified [PM] Ice Kream Teddy as the reigning gloving champion. This IGC title rounds out his 4 previous BOSS titles, making him the most decorated competitive glover out there. But who will change it all in 2015?

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.

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.
