The Chapter is responsible for all aspects of this event including scheduling, obtaining facilities, financing, planning, marketing, band registration, recruitment of volunteers, establishment of format and rules, and hiring adjudicators. In consideration of these responsibilities, the Chapter reserves the right to make any and all decisions pertaining to the current operation and future direction of the contest.
