  • Judge A – Good use of height & angles. Nice slow-burn elements with added surprise of floating units. Finale good, some misfires perhaps?
  • Judge B – Somewhat hesitant start but tempo picked up well. Symmetry good and maintained well -plenty of colour but slight mishmash. A good overall display.
  • Judge C – Good colour & height. Couple of ‘pauses’ mid-show. Good start & finish.
  • Judge D – Need to improve flow & timing. Stuff down low lost as effect up high drew the eye.
  • Judge E – Slow start, a little disjointed.
  • Judge F – Good variety and wow factor. Lack of variety of colour in places.

  • Judge A – Really tight in synchro making big audio impact. Great use of rhythm. Basics done well with epic finale. Visual symmetry lost in places with some misfires.
  • Judge B – Unusual start, but rhythm and pattern picked up as display continued. Good use of symmetry but somewhat mixed in middle of display. A good rounded finish.
  • Judge C – No maroons at start. Very low and quickly obscured by smoke. A bit ‘light’ in the middle. Good colour & symmetry. Good ending.
  • Judge D – Especially liked the start & count-down before finale.
  • Judge E – Generally good display, some poor continuity in places.
  • Judge F – Excellent variety really showcased a huge range of effects. Wow factor stunned the crowd towards the end.

  • Judge A – Really colourful display. Nice use of height including smoke-management. Lovely slow-burn effects with a very different finale. Did lose symmetry and felt quite thin in places.
  • Judge B – A well-rounded show. Good colour with nice variety. Well executed.
  • Judge C – Good start. Good height & symmetry. No pauses. Very good colour. Good ending.
  • Judge D – Some of low fireworks lost as higher up ones caught the eye and overpowered them.
  • Judge E – Good display.
  • Judge F – Good rhythm. Moved well between sections of the display. Strong finish with good wow factor.

  • Judge A – Bold use of colour. Good variation of height and scale. More variety of rhythm would have got a bigger score.
  • Judge B – A good dramatic start with sound symmetry and excellent patterns. Excellent impetus right through to a rousing finale.
  • Judge C – Good opening, no pauses. Good height & colour. Symmetry good. Very good finale. (Shame the wind didn’t disperse the smoke!).
  • Judge D – Visual balance good. Sometimes too much going on so eyes drawn away from one element before it had finished.
  • Judge E – Very impressive.
  • Judge F – Fantastic variety & wow factor.
