My daughter lost her cross (silver, gold, and copper on a silver chain) at the Saugus feis. She arrived around 12:30 for a 2 pm Prize winner O15 and left around 3:45. Our things were by the gym, closest to Stage 5 and the vendors, across from the women's bathroom. She thinks it may have fallen out of her pocket near the bathroom. Please contact me if found. It was a gift from her grandmother.

Date Posted: 16:41:14 11/21/18 Wed

I'm excited to tell you that I just published "Sound the Warning." This is an historical fiction book about the Penal Laws during the 18th century in Ireland. The target audience is 8-14 year olds, but older kids like it too. I don't know about you, but in all my history courses here in the USA, I never even heard of the Penal Laws. It wasn't until my daughter became an Irish dancer that I learned about them. I thought that today's children need to hear about this historical period so I did something about it! My characters are USA twins(one of whom is an Irish dancer) who time travel to Ireland and have all sorts of adventures there, so it's a fun read for children. They come away from the book having learned a lot of Irish culture and history. If interested, the book just went live on Amazon.com. Here is the link:

https://www.amazon.com/Sound-Warning-Children-World-Book-ebook/dp/B07JPLQRS6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1542198224&sr=8-1&keywords=books+christie+sever

This is a qualifying event for the hard working dancers and they are not awarded the same opportunities as others trying to qualify. Advanced beginner, Novice and Prizewinner dancers that are not competing in a championship are permitted to dance on the main stage. This is clearly money grab for the organizers.

It's always such a packed feis but it still runs so smoothly. I love the centralized announcements in the gym and the amazing stage hands and other volunteers. Everyone was so kind despite it being a long day with so many people to deal with. Also like the rotating judges in the gym.

Schedule inside the first reply. A few notes- we have combined quite a few competitions. Any competitions with a "/" between them have been combined.
A few of the earlier championship competitions will dance soft shoe first. This is because several dancers in each of those competitions are dancing a figure first, so they will already be in soft shoe.
Competitions up to and including u14 in the Main Gym and Auxiliary Gym will dance 3 at a time.
Our schedule for the contemporary sets in the foyer is a little different this year. We will start that stage right at 8:30 and your set competition may come up before your preliminary competition.

Looking forward to a great day on Sunday!

I think Voy should change it’s name to the bash board... do you think the Odwyer school intentionally wanted this to happen?? It was their very First Feis and obviously have some things to work out.. it was nice to see a different style Feis rather than being crammed in a highschool Gymnasium with bumpy slippery floor taped right over the gym floor.. look at some of the positives and give them a chance to work on the negatives...
