I think some of the judges need to explain their marks.  It should be interesting.

I wonder if there should be open marking and that might make them think twice about what they are doing.

We usually are, it's just that we find out later into the conversation that we're looking at an asymmetrical object from two different angles and claiming that one is not seeing what the other is seeing.   Grin

[I find there are equally big disagreements when people look at a perfectly symmetrical object from the same angle Tongue Roll Eyes ]

...I still think that they should not work with any competitors at least three month prior to the comp.
...but that cuts into their income and could make them loose clients (who would go elsewhere) so I think its too severe

However, my comment on truer words was for you, QPO.  You mentioned absorbing the music and dancing to the music.  That's deep. 

The common trend is to add a layer of "count", a constantly moving target, to the music, which has a tendency to remove all musicality.  The interaction between the count and the body takes center stage, and the direct connection between the music and the body is severed.  People who don't count, on the other hand, and let the music do the counting for them, are able to connect directly to the music.  The body is in motion within the music, effectively making the music stationary.  No need to chase a stationary target.  That way, there's no such thing as music being "too fast" or "too slow".  Music just is.

The concept of counting, I think, does the most damage to limit any kind of connection with the music.  One doesn't count while singing, one doesn't count while listening to mentally keep up with the music and enjoy it.  So the concept of counting while dancing is mind boggling, unless of course, they want to give themselves a constantly moving target.  Listening to music, then counting to it, and then trying to dance to the count while listening to the music, "...is like trying to hit a bullet with a smaller bullet, whilst wearing a blindfold, riding a horse" – Montgomery Scott, 2258 (Star Trek).

We danced on the week-end and got third places all round. one couple who came from interstate always do quite well on the national scene  so they expected to place higher but they came last. a couple in our age category, that if we dance national never get out of the rounds into a semi and we make finals and they get second place here. I try not to let it worry me anymore,I just have to make the divide so big that it will make the judges look silly.  Roll Eyes

I would love to have it where they have to make known who they work with.  I still think that they should not work with any competitors at least three month prior to the comp.

Interesting enough while the WDSF lets judges judge where they wish and for whom the Canadian WDC group will not allow judges to judge for anyone else but them.  They will punish any judge who judges outside of the WDC.  The members were not given any choice or allowed to make decisions.  They are even trying to tell some comp organzers what they can do at their competitions.   This is what I was afraid of, going from the frying pan to the fire.  What happened to FREEDOM to dance and allowing people to chose where they wanted to go??  All the bitching and preaching and going on and now they turn around and do the same thing now that it is to their advantage?  Worse really since you are affecting people's making a living.  I am so discouraged that when it came down to it they are putting money over the dance.  I was told it was going to be different and a democratic system but this is not happening and they just got started.
