Open qualification is acquired through the Grand Shield, with the exception of our international competitors.

All invited bands are automatically registered, and private login details given to the band registration official.  Each player is then registered with the band they are to play for.  The system is hosted securely an privately on the internet. On the contest day, the registration desk verifies each player with your networked register.  Changes can be addressed up to and even on the day of the contest if necessary.
