Removal of a Judge's Scores
A two-thirds (2/3) majority of the Club Representatives present in the Tally Room must agree before a Judge's score can be removed. The Overseer Judge must be present for all votes in the Tally Room. The Referee Judge's scores are subjected to the same scrutiny as the other Judges' scores once they are introduced in the Tally Room for either replacing an Overall Performance Judge's scores or breaking a tie in the final results.
Representation of Judges Facing Disqualification
If requested by the Club Representatives, a judge may be permitted in the Tally Room to answer questions involving his/her individual scores.
Judges in the Tally Room
At the request of the Club Representatives, a judge may be permitted in the Tally Room to answer questions of a technical nature that do not relate to the quality of his/her scores. For example, the judge may be able to answer questions on the Scoring System, Tally Room Procedures, Robert's Rules of Order, or on the equipment used in the Tally Room.
The rules and procedures outlined here are based on the governing articles of the Texas State Dance Association, the Oklahoma State Swing Dance Association, the Southwest Regional Dance Association, and other organizations that use the relative placement system.
They may be modified as required to adapt them to the conventions and preferences of the organization wishing to use them. Care should be taken, however, not to inadvertently alter the basic functionality of the system.
