This past Nov, I was adjucated for ACTF lighting design for one of our universities' productions. This was the first time for us to ever be adjucated for the technical parts of a show. Not only is any website documentation vague, the chair of our region Design & Technology didn't offer much help either. In the end I was selected to go to our egional competition next week. Now this is our first time taking anything technical to ACTF. There was a little more information available for the display part of the compeition but not much about the oral part, and again answers were vague. I'm sorry that I can't help you with th SM stuff, but I just thought I would tell you that you are not alone in the lack of information available.
