At Championships Finals there will be 3 Classes:
Open Class, A Class and Junior Class
Details of how the split for Open and A Class will be determined will be announced prior to the first contest of the season once we have a clearer idea on how many Corps are registered for 2011 however it is envisaged that the top 8 Corps will compete in the Open Class Championships with the remaining Corps competing in the A Class Championships.

Order of Performance
The order of performance at 2011 contests will be determined by the order in which registrations are received and also by the scores obtained during the season.
For example:
Open & Junior Class -
At the first contest - the last Corps to perform will be the first Corps to register whilst the first Corps to perform will be the Corps that registered last.
Open & Junior Class - At the 2nd and subsequent contests (inc Championships prelims for Open Class and Championships Finals for Junior Class) Corps which have already competed at a previous contest will perform last in the order of their previous highest score with the final Corps to perform being the Corps with the highest score from all previous contests. Prior to this the remaining Corps will perform in the order in which they registered.
Open Class Only - At Championships Finals the Open Class Corps will be split into two classes (Open Class & A Class) and the order in each class will be determined by the scores obtained during the Prelims event earlier in the day.  Details of how the split will be determined will be announced prior to the first contest of the season.

Withdrawal from Contests.
Corps have until the 31st May 2011 to advise which DCUK Contests they wish to attend. Prior to this date Corps can withdraw from competing at a particular contest with no penalty.

From 1st June 2011 the penalty for withdrawing from a DCUK Contest will be a “fine” of double the entry charge for that contest and must be paid before the Corps can compete again in 2011. 50% of this fine will be held by DCUK and 50% will transferred to the Contest Organisor.

Any registrations after this date will be placed on a waiting list in case of other Corps withdrawing.  Registrations welcome for season shows, excluding Championships, at any time and every attempt will be made to fit Corps in.
