calling contest

Postby duckslayer31 » Sun Nov 10, 2013 10:15 pm

K so I am new to this forum and I have a couple questions for anyone willing to lend a hand and give me some direction.
I am thinking of participating in a goose calling contest in the spring and I'm wondering what the judges are looking for i.e. volume,range,pitch. Things of that nature, I'm 31 and I've never competed in anything like this before so any info would be helpful. Thanks

Youtube...lots of routines just posted from the worlds this past weekend. Get a copy of the Stage Grammar dvd as well. Then find somebody in your area that is a contest caller and see if they can work with you on putting it all together.

When I am judging I look for a few different things. I first thing I notice is pop and volume. Then I am looking for flow of the routine, and finally how technical the routine is. All judges like different things in a routine, I personally like to see good control from top to bottom, and real strong low end. IMO everyone at the contest level especially at the top can do speed stuff, not everyone has good low end.

I'm the opposite of Shaun. I look for technicality first, then flow, then power. Low end is a must though

I thought it went pretty much as expected. The top 3 could have been in any order and it would have all come down to personal preference as all 3 did what they do very well
