This year, as with others, the Rules and Regulations Committee has been hard at work improving and refining the WBC competition. Each year information, feedback and data is collated from many different areas of the competitions. They receive submissions and complete surveys from Competitors, National Bodies, Trainers, Audience and our Judges. They compile and process masses of documentation and are able to make changes to the competition.
Their Brief is simple, “Deliver an understandable Rules and Regulations document that provides a platform on which Baristas can innovate and excel.” Making that come to life will always be a challenge, but one that everyone can embrace. This year there is a release of new Rules and Regulations document with lots of changes. Some are small, some much larger.
The new document will be out in the next few weeks, but the Committee wants to share one of the most exciting changes that we have made. This is the new Station Layout.
The rationale behind this includes:
The actual changes are: Table Dimensions:
The Committee is excited to see these changes happen and believe they provide some opportunities for Barista’s to interact better with their Judges and Audience to improve the delivery of their Competition Routine.
This is just one of the changes coming this year and the remaining changes come very soon!
The Rules and Regulations Committee always welcomes your ideas, questions and feedback. If you have anything you would like to communicate to the Rules and Regulations Committee please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the Netherlands the station lay out for the upcoming DBC is not changed.Terug
