There are a lot of changes. Here are some highlights:
SQC and IQC rules merged into one book (50 pages!).
Classes at the top of the class structure has changed. Note that the new Pro 2 does NOT mean 2 seat as it has in prior years. It is just the 2nd level of Pro. Old Pro/AM = Pro 1, old Pro = Pro 2, New = Pro 3 (includes single and two seat SQ), old Expert 1 + Expert 2 = new Expert.
Pro 3 and Expert require IQC and SPL (old school!). This is replacing Triple Crown.
Better download all the music before being judged, because it's going to be scored.
Sound Linearity has changed to just Loud Spectral Balance.
Ergonomics criteria and points have changed.
Scoring in IQC presentation has changed to max 5 points for each line item.
Photo log book has changed to install visibility.
