Author: Everyone has to register correctly for it to work
Subject: I also like the idea of predetermined order however.... more inside.

Feis committees would love to predetermine orders. But... a few things....
1- judges and musicians ideally like to see dancers grouped together who do same dances (ex: all hornpipes together.)
2- in order to do that ahead of time, dancers have to be registered correctly. Quite often, when dancers or their parents register for feis, they indicate wrong dances. Hornpipe, treble jig etc... as well as wrong set or speed and/or sometimes no set dance at al is listed. They just figure they'll get them registered and will make corrections morning of feis.
3- so stage monitors have to correct the dances being performed first and then try to organize dancers based on thier dances and then try to separate kids from same schools.
4- when kids check in late, they count on feis volunteers not wanting to mess with order they FINALLY got kids and get to go at the end.
**Dancers are much sneakier than they let on sometimes and some teachers even encourage this!
Having volunteered at feis before, I have new appreciation for what can hold things up!
