City Finalists discussion thread

It says in the finalists that they will also play the winner of best school. How do we know who that is? Will the winning team be told so that they can go along too and celebrate?

The message from the organisers this year was not good.

Other than a technical glitch at the launch, Hamilton has run great so far. Jake has done a great job.

Bechdel Test in 48Hours

The bechdel test would have been extremely hard for us to pass this year as had 11 male students which made up the team. We had 2 females who signed up, but dropped out about a week before the event. Also none of our characters talked to each other, so would have failed in that way too.

Same weekend every year?

Unfortunately the time to actually have this approve and organized for our school is running out. It seems less and less likely we will be competing this year.

Clunkiest compulsory line ever?

For a moment I considered a school ball (prom) but then realised it was a setting not a prop.

Hamilton Audience Awards 2014

in reply to Captain Woodrow .F Call:

just having a bit of a dig. I think the reviews are actually a really important part of the competition, especially for those who don't get through to the city finals. Some constructive criticism can help out for next year.
