Gup Competition Bidding Underway

The 2015 National Festival is being hosted by Region 1 in Danvers, MA July 30 to August 1, 2015 and one question remains on the table about the 2015 agenda, “Will Gup competition be included in the 2015 National Festival agenda?”  Members have been further empowered by the Board and TAC to decide that matter as discussed by the Board and TAC Chairman below.

A Message From The Board and TAC Chairmen

Even though the minimum bidding threshold has been met for Region 1 to host the Dan only 2015 National Festival, the criteria for adding Gup competition to the agenda remains unmet. The overall quality of Gup competition (divisions, age groups, etc.) some variable costs and member service matters are still important considerations when an insufficient quantity of Gups show up.

In support of studio owners vocalizing support for Gup competition to be included in the 2015 National Festival agenda, the bidding and pledging process is extended to April 10th, 2015 and the TAC Chairman has agreed to host another National Studio Owner teleconference on March 11, 2015 at 9:30 PM EST.

These actions are being taken to support this secondary bidding cycle that focuses soley on quantifying the amount of actual Gup member interest that exists for Gups competing in the National Festival because Gup members can already attend all seminars and other activities at the 2015 National Festival.

The extended bidding process will provide additional time for interested members to recruit additional Gup attendees to bid or pledge and after April 10th we can reevaluate if a sufficient quantity of Gup participants have identified themselves by bidding or pledging in order to justify the effort that needs to be expended by the TAC to facilitate Gup competition in the National Festival agenda.
