Changing Times ...

WDSF AdjudicatorsThe proverbial "tempora mutantur" (times are changing) held true when it comes to what happend over the past weekend in Cambrils, ESP. The premiere of the Judging System 2.0 did certainly not go unnoticed. Thousands of spectators at the venue and a television audience in the millions had front row seats to the first outing of a novel concept in the adjudicating of DanceSport. A new judging system had been in use since 2009, but when 'new' suddenly became '2.0', the future seemed to have arrived at last.

From the very first round, and still using the comparison-based marking, the WDSF Adjudicators for the 2013 GrandSlam Cambrils produced live results that anyone was able to look at from anywhere, immediately after the Chairman declared them official. From computers or smartphones, starting lists for the subsequent round as well as the standing of those couples not continuing in the competition became available through the result section of the WDSF website.

This is what WDSF Communications wrote in 2010 - in that year's report to the General Assembly.

Results could be published instantly, through affordable technology, provided they are all kept in determined formats. Something that is clearly not yet the case, with the standardisation of scrutineering software being a far removed concept. As long as couples have to gather around a hard copy printout – taped to a wall at the venue – in order to check whether they made the second round, a fair amount of work remains to be done.

They should ultimately be able to consult their smartphones to find out, and to get their marks instantly if they did not advance ...


The latter was possible after the redance in Cambrils! And then the panel of 12 Adjudicators sat down for even more innovative work to be done.
