COVID Protocols

We want all our members to be safe during their time in Rapid City and throughout the in-person competition. These are our basic COVID protocols. We will be providing more information on testing procedures and other COVID-related considerations as the contest draws nearer. And, as we've learned during this time - things could change. Thank you in advance for adhering to these precautions!

  1. All members will be required to provide a negative test within 72 hours of arriving in Rapid City.
  2. All members will be required to wear a mask in the auditorium except when on stage, when they can remove their masks. Upon finishing on stage, members must put their masks back on. By the way - you has a group or individuals may wear a mask on stage, it's your choice.
  3. All attendees must wear masks and practice social distancing within the lower bowl of the auditorium. Every other row in the lower bowl will be blocked off.
  4. Guests will be allowed in the venue, but must show proof of vaccination, must be masked at all times, and will be seated in the balcony. Only members will be in the lower bowl.
  5. We will allow plenty of separation between the judges and the audience. In addition, we will work with the Panel Chair to help the judges feel as safe as possible.
  6. All participants will sign the SAI waiver of liability on your competing members forms.
