Someone said this in another thread I read today. Many other countries have their adjudication verbally instead of on paper. I have taken part in Hungerford entertainment contest several times and they also do this. The band is recorded as they play and the adjudicator speaks in a soft voice over the top. I've found this a brilliant way of adjudicating there is very little lee-way for disputing the adjudicator's comments, when he says it is out of tune you can hear it, wrong notes can be clearly heard etc. etc.! You get much more of a view of how the adjudicator has heard things rather than the distorted hearing you can get from up on stage. Why are we behind other countries and not using the technology currently available? Has anyone else had adjudication like this and what do you think?
