The Meet & Greet is the first public event of AUSTRALIAN LEATHERMAN. It takes place on Friday evening, February 24, 2017. Contestants will be given specific assembly time and location at the Friday orientation.
The purpose of this event is to introduce the judges and the contestants to the public.
For the first introduction, you will be lined up in alphabetical order by State. You will be lined up according to height, shortest to tallest, with the shortest contestant carrying your country or state flag. As all Contestants from a state are announced in alphabetical order, you will take the stage and remain until the announcement for the next group begins.
For your second introduction, you will be lined up by the number you drew on Friday at orientation. Staff will direct you on how to take the stage during and your placement after your personal introduction. The group will remain on stage after all Contestants have been introduced.
Following this, you will have leave the stage and have an opportunity to mingle with the patrons at the event and introduce yourself and engage in conversation. The judges will be ‘observing’ how you interact with people and get a feel for your comfort level. The Emcee will indicate when you should consider leaving as the interviews will begin at 12:30pm the following morning..
These general guidelines may change, but are presented here to give you an idea of the simple staging. Specific staging instructions will be given at the rehearsal.
Contestants are guided by staff to the event, prepared by staff prior to walking on stage, and met by staff upon exiting the stage.
Your choice of attire is optional. No change of attire is required.
Your Den Daddy will advise you where and when to report for your interview before you are dismissed from this event.
