I was waiting a little to see if their were any other ideas.
I've got 2 ideas for Ball based contests. I would like them
both to be War Points. The first is the now mostly traditional
attendance WP. I would like it to be during the last dance of
the first set. Something easy and fun - Trenchmore maybe.
The second is a bit more competition-like and here I was inspired
some by what was done a gulf wars last year. A head to head
competition of dance performances, one done by each side.
Each side gets to choose its best entry however they want, any
time prior to the ball. During the first break each side will
perform their dance. Results judeged almost immediately.
Non-selected entries could be perfoemed during later breaks.
Level 2 (8 each)
Music (bonus points for live music!)
Style (participants having fun1!)
Authenticity (period reconstruction or very period-like original)
Level 3 (4 each)
Documentation (3x5 index card)
Garb (similar, appropriate to time and place)
