0----------350pts---------------550pts------------------750pts------------------950pts--------------1,000pts
          (Average)            (Above Average)            (Excellent)            (Phenomenal)           (Badass!!!)

50pts CROWD PARTICIPATION. Use the crowd in your show. Don't pretend that they are not there. Are you communicating with them? Making eye contact? Are they impressed with what you are doing? The crowd's response(s) during your routine will be factored into this category as well as their immediate response at the end of your performance. It will not be a “loudest crowd applause� judging where the Emcee will ask the crowd for their approval, it will be the crowd's true response at the end of the round.

Out of town competitors will fly into the Columbus International Airport (CMH)

Area Hotels:
University Plaza Hotel (614) 267-7461, Holiday Inn on the Lane (614) 294-4848, Fairfield Inn & Suites (614) 267-1111, Hampton Inn (614) 559-2000 and the Varsity Inn (614) 291-2983

Transportation:
I would highly suggest getting a rental car. Cabs are available but are not as available as some major cities. Only one Hotel is within walking distance if you can get it depending on availability.
