* A Standard Round includes a breakdown, waltz and tune of choice other than a breakdown or a waltz. There is no time limit.
** A Choice Round is a 1-tune round in which the audience, the judges, the fiddler, or JT will select a tune, a type of tune or regionality/style for the fiddlers to play. There is no time limit. Each contestant gets 1 pass. This means they can ask to play a different choice tune once. A second pass means a zero score for that round.
*** A Round Robin pits the best fiddlers of the day in a showdown not to be missed! Each fiddler gets a clean scorecard and tunes are selected as noted above, choice style. Judges will submit scores on a scale of 1-10 (10 being best) immediately upon hearing the tune and tabulated for each fiddler.
