I'm contemplating my first ever multiline ballet at BASKC. What are the min/max times for these kinds of things? I've already got a song in mind that I will likely have to edit a bit.

Thanks.

David is correct!
I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the rules. Available at: http://worldsportkite.com/irb
You will need to read at least the Rules and Judges books. When you get into precision, you will need the compulsories book.
Very important is to never fly over the outer boundaries(red lines). Doing so is good for a DQ.
There are a number of other things you should be well aware of.

David or John, could you move this thread to Competitions.

Good luck with the competition. I have not competed for a little while now but there are lots of ways to maximise your score. Learn the rules, play by the rules, tell the judges in advance about all the little subtle bits and difficult bits. But basically no matter how much of this you do and how many mind games you play it all boils down to practice.

Don't be tempted to busk. Know the music and the routine inside out. I always found in competition, that the more we practiced, the luckier we bacame ;)

Oh and don't forget to smile....
