At the beginning of each round music is played. Who choose the songs?
The selection of the songs is a spontanous decision.

When the song is over the round starts.
Why is there a different starting time in the two halls?
Normally there is a ten minutes time shift between the two halls, because it's easier for the referees not to have the time termination phase in both halls at the same time. On Thursday the gym starts first from Friday to Monday the Public Hall will start first.

First stop the clock. Then look for somebody from the staff i.e. in the kitchen, the tournament office or the referee tables.

No. The highest authority is the tournament director, his decisions are definite. We fully trust in our referees and our director.
How can I get a receipt for my starting charge?
