Subject: HALLoween Feis, Chicago, IL 2011

The Mullane Healy Godley Academy of Irish Dance will be hosting the annual Halloween Feis, 2011 on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at the McCook Athletic and Exposition Center, located in McCook, IL.

We have addressed the concerns and issues had with our June Feis, and we have done the following: reconfigured stage and floor plan allowing for more space between stages; ordering better audio equipment; placing the musicians at the top of the stage, stage left in order to judges and dancers to hear the music better; allowed for more time for each grade to relieve congestion and to deal with unexpected delays, hired extra musicians and adjudicators to keep the day going.

The feis is now open for entries, and entries will be accepted through October 20, 2011 via http://www.efeis.com. There is no entry cap on First Feis or Beginner 1 dancers, there is a cap of 800 entries for all Beginner 2 through Open Prizewinner dancers.

The feis will commence at 8am with the Halloween Parade; 815am All Preliminary Competitions, First Feis and Beginner 1; 8.45am Beginner 2; 11am Novice; 1200pm All Open Championship competitions. 1.30pm All Open Prizewinner Competitions. The Treble Reel Competition will be held at 1130am. Be ready to compete 30 minutes prior to scheduled start time.

For Preliminary and Open Championship competitions there is a cap of 300 dancers. In preparation of the Oireachtas 2011 all Preliminary and Open Championship dancers will dance all three rounds and be adjudicated by a total of nine adjudicators. Our adjudicators for the event are:
Lorraine Farrell, Galway, Ireland
Bernadette Fegan, Wicklow, Ireland
Laura Masters, California, USA
Violet Moore, Vancouver, CA
Rose Kelly-Virgo, Illinois, USA
Kathleen O’Keefe, New York, USA
Marie Moore, New Jersey, USA
Vinny O’Connor, California, USA
Rose Fearon, Toronto, CA
Kate O’Connor, California, USA
Kristin Butke, Tennessee, USA
Kerry Ann Broderick, New York, USA
Maureen Doyle, Illinois, USA
Caitlin Alllen, New York, USA
Julie Showalter, Illinois, USA

In memory of the late Ann Richens, who will sadly be missed by so many in our region, we will be hosting a new annual competition at the Halloween Feis – The Ann Richen’s Memorial Treble Reel Cup. The competition will combine all feis treble reel competitions into ONE, which will be held during the lunch break, and adjudicated by a ‘guest’ adjudicator. All dancers must wear a Halloween costume in order to partake, and the first place winner will be awarded a $1,000 US Savings Bond. Please note all treble reel proceeds will be donated in Ann Richen’s name to the American Cancer Society.

The host hotel is the Holiday Inn, Countryside. For the feis rate of $119.00 please call 708-354-4200 and quote Irish Dance.
