Important rule about earning stamps for beginner dancers:
As of January 1, 2011, the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance instituted a rule regarding stamps earned by Beginner dancers. Stamps will only be awarded if a Beginner dancer places 1st, 2nd or 3rd in at least one of the following Highland dances: Fling, Sword, Seann Triubhas, Strathespey & Reel, Half Tulloch (or Half Hullachan), Special or Trophy Fling. This means if the only dance a Beginner places in are the Lilt and/or Flora, they will not earn a stamp for that competition. This rule only affects dancers in the BEGINNER category. Novice dancers will continue to earn stamps if they win a 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize in any dance.
