Without this set of people we would not have achieved the Best Costume and Best Hair and Make-up awards.<br><B>Thanks to the Drama Dept</B> for lending us costumes from their Shakespeare Festival, <B>to the Art Dept</B> for providing some fabric <B>and to the Site Management Team</B> for helping with some of the props and putting up with stuff being left lying around in odd places while it dried.<br><B>I hope I haven't left anyone out - so many people have been involved.</B><br>Spending a day in the marquee was an interesting experience. Had a bit of a panic when we were told that 4 schools were going to be in it and that there was no electricity, water, tables or chairs! But ... a quick shuffle and we were soon down to 2 schools, and tables, chairs and electricity were eventually provided. <B>One of our pupils (Yaz) did a sterling job</B> going to and fro getting water for the facepainting and emptying the dirty buckets. Thank goodness it was a sunny day and the kids could get outside!<br><B>Well done to everyone who performed on the day - hope those first-timers enjoyed their day and that they will be back next year.<br>Congratulations to Stainburn and good luck to you and to St Benedicts and Whitehaven when you perform at your finals in Grimsby (but can anyone tell me why the Northern Finals are held in Grimsby and not somewhere more central?)</B><br>Sorry to have gone on for so long!<br><B>BRING ON ROCK CHALLENGE 2007!!</B><br>Janet Wilde (<B><I>aka Wilde Designs</I></B>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> Hey!!!<br>Just a message to say how GREAT John and Wendy are!

MAY ASHFIELD BE THE FIRST TO CONGRATULATE YOU, JOHN, OUR BRILLIANT WEBSITE EDITOR,ON BEING THE FIRST PERSON TO BE NAMED (... wait for it ...) "GOOD CITIZEN 2006" (or - dare I say - Good Senior Citizen 2006!!:)<br>WELL DONE IN GETTING THIS SPECIAL CITIZENSHIP AWARD AND YOUR NAME WILL BE ADDED ON THE "ROLL OF HONOUR" Sooo....

CITIZENS OF ASHFIELD would like to HELP YOU, HELP SOMEONE ELSE.</B> If you have anyone that you would like to nominate for a GOOD CITIZENS AWARD (G.C.A), come back online and let us know who they are and why they deserve the award and ASHFIELD will SHINE THEIR LIGHT on the GOOD CITIZENS OF ROCK CHALLENGE and give them the recognition they deserve. So when it comes to GRIMSBY their names will be on the "ROLL OF HONOUR" for all to see.<br>So for CITIZENSHIP 2006, ASHFIELD might shine a light on you or they might "SHINE A LIGHT ON ME"!!

Dave here, the Rock Challenge Stage Manager.</B><br>I've been keeping up with the sets discussion with great interest and thought it was about time I put my 2 pence worth in!<br><br>I think it's great that this is such a positive discussion and agree with most points wholeheartedly. <B>I would add this:- the set design and staging holds as many points in the judging as any other area of the criteria and therefore should be given the same amount of attention as any other area of a Rock Challenge entry. We cannot be too far away from having to stage the finals at some seriously big venues.</B><br><br>One point I would make is something I and the rest of the stage crew are coming across more and more regularly. <B>With a big set MUST come a big stage crew.</B> You are allowed up to 20 students and 4 non-students in a stage crew so <B>please - if you are planning on having a large set in 2006 or beyond please bring a stage crew who can handle it.<br><br>(Personally I love a big effective set and would encourage all the schools to go as big as they like. I especially like seeing <a href="olly.htm">Olly</a> sweat as huge set after huge set is emptied into a venue!)</B><br><br>That's about all from me for now but I'll just give 2 more quick points:-<ul><li><B>Big sets don't always equal big points</B> ... a smaller, cleverer more original set will score big points too.<li><B>The Rock Challenge stage crew do not make a decision about where your 4 minutes will start from until the event day</B> and this decision will depend on where we have to store sets once they have arrived.</ul>Take Care, have a good Easter (and keep up the great work, John :)<br>Dave<br><br>++++++++++++<br> <B>Great to see the <a href="2006belf.htm">pics from Belfast</a> - they all look fab! It was definitely worth all the blood, sweat and tears! :)<br>I can't wait to see all the actual pics from the photographer now and I'm sure all the kids will be excited too. Just have to wait until after the Easter hols tho!</B><br>Julie Officer<br><br>++++++++++++<br> <B><a href="horns203.jpg">Talking about big sets, guys, how can anyone forget Hornsea ?</a></B> They seemed to build a new stage on top of the venue stage last year - now that IS big!!<br><B>We thought our sets were big until we went to Australia.</B> We had our "<B><I>Fire of London</I></B>" set which didn't fit on the Brid stage at all, really, and only just fit on at Grimsby, but in Australia it was about <I>half</I> the size of their sets! The category that we were with do have an awful lot more to spend on sets than we do, but still the size of the sets was amazing! We don't use stages in the UK big enough to fit them on!!<br>Compared to other years, our set this year is relatively small, although we do have about 3 stage crew inside it so it's not THAT small !! :))<br>Love - Roxy from <B><I>Driff</I></B><br><br>++++++++++++<br> <B>Concerned Citizens of Staging!!!!!</B><br>I am glad about this talk of HEIGHT RESTRICTIONS and it just goes to show you how deceptive sets can be. <B><I>It was mentioned that ASHFIELD'S set was BIG last year and I'm sorry to tell everyone that IT'S EVEN BIGGER THIS YEAR but here's the thing - its still WELL BELOW the allowed height.</I></B> It must be the <B><I>EXCELLENT TEAM OF ARTISTS</I></B> we have for the set that gives the illusion of it being bigger than it really is.<br>LET'S GO, ASHFIELD... LET'S GO....<br>Love you all - CITIZEN SPARKLE (<B><I>Stagecrew</I></B>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> <I>The Fab Tim at the FAB UK Rocka HQ now tells me that John Smeaton have pulled out of Bradford 1 :(<br>John (Editor)</I><br><br>++++++++++++<br> <I>The Fab Mitch at the FAB UK Rocka HQ tells me that Chipping Norton School have pulled out of Portsmouth 2 :(<br>John (Editor)</I><br><br>++++++++++++<br> <B>Steven (Peterhead) -</B> you say that your set at its tallest reached 15ft but you say you've seen "much bigger". Well, if you have then they were breaking the rules, as a set can only be 5 metres tall or about 16ft !<br>Jonny (<B><I>Buttershaw / Rocka Volunteer</I></B>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> <B>Counting the days down till grimsby northern final!! Not long now ... just under 2 months!!! It might SEEM long but it's not !</B><br>Looks like it's back to staying at school til 8 o'clock getting scenery sorted!! What a drag!!!!!!!!<br><B>Good luck to all schools - hope you enjoy the day as much we do!!!!!!!!!!<br><I>The Archie Crew</I></B><br><br>++++++++++++<br> <p><font color="BLUE"><b>Apr 12th 2006</b></font> (9 messages)</p> <p>Hi folks!<br><B>Set Discussers - as much as sets get bigger and bigger as years pass (and worried looks from Rocka crew increase along with them :P ) the satisfaction of seeing set standing on stage and part of the final performance makes the effort all the more worthwhile.</B> I believe our main set tops a height of around 15ft, but I have seen much bigger sets! (Cue <B><I>Ashfield's</I></B> set last year and also <B><I>Torry's</I></B> big flat of yesteryear's rocka)<br>As always, they <B><I>may</I></B> be a logistical nightmare, yet we <B>always</B> enjoy seeing the lorry either fully loaded with the set or when it's emptied out for a day of Rocka :)<br>It always amazes me the ideas that come from schools for set and the end result. Set does improve every year and every idea is always new and innovative. I will be looking forward to seeing the sets (and also the performances!) in the opens at Grimsby :)<br><B>Best of luck to all the finalists, and also to all those who are yet to compete in their local heat.</B><br>John - four heats so far! (<I>Ed: I know - not many, is it</I> :(<br>I hope you can grace us with your presence in Grimsby... hope for the best :D (<I>Ed again - see you there</I> :)<br>Steven (<B><I>Peterhead Lighting Manager</I></B>)<br><br>++++++++++++<br> Hey hey everybody!!
