ACHF is asking for baskets to be donated for this year’s event. We will do the same this year and sell tickets for each basket. We ask that if you can bring one, if you could write up a brief description of the items in basket (if needed) and whom the basket came from (team or individual that did the basket). You do not have to do the description or whom it came from, but everyone always wants to know who make the basket.

We will also be doing the 50/50 drawings again this year.

We are not set up to take credit cards as payment at the Championships and want to remind everyone that cash and checks are excepted.

T- shirt sales will be available for purchase with a new 2016 design.

Programs will be available for purchase.

We want to remind everyone that you cannot bring outside food and drink into the Spartanburg Auditorium. The Auditorium staff will be watching all entrance doors, including the back door behind stage.

There is no cover charge to gain entrance to the Championships.

The plywood floor will be used once again for this years event. In case of slick spots, bring duct tape for the ball of the shoe (right behind the front tap) to help with that.

2016 New Categories and Rules

Two new categories, Traditional Line Formations & Progressive Acapella, were voted on and passed to be added. They are now ready to be competed in regional competitions starting in May 2016.

This year in October at Spartanburg SC, 2016, the two New categories will be offered to any team that wants to compete in them, without having to qualify for this year only. In 2017, teams will have to qualify them the same as every other category. However this year the Traditional Line Formations & Progressive Acapella will not be considered for the overall award in the respective categories.

This year in October 2016, we will divide the categories up into Four Main Categories as follow:

Traditional: Smooth, Southern Appalachian, Country Hoedown, Kentucky Running Set, Kentucky Running Set Precision, 4 Couple Precision, 6 or 8 Couple Precision

Open Traditional: 4 or More Couple Open Hoedown, 4 or More Couple Open Precision, Traditional Line, Traditional Line Formations

Contemporary: Line, Line Formations, Exhibition, Small Team Exhibition

Open Contemporary: Props Exhibition, Show, Acapella Team, Stomp, Progressive Acapella

Each of these categories are considered separate from the other and you can win a Overall title in one of four of the categories. We still will give an Overall in Each Category and an Overall for each Main Category.

The Rules and score sheets are posted and you can see what is judged in each of them.

If you have any questions about the new categories or break down and separation of the Main Categories, contact Henry Jones.

Below are the updated rules for ACHF, and the new category scoresheets.
