To our feis registrants: We are aware of the new Massachusetts travel restrictions and continue to monitor the changing Covid climate. At this point as the NH guidelines remain unchanged, we are continuing to plan our Winter Feis. We understand there may be some registered families that are unable to abide by their state's travel restriction. If that is the case please email us at murrayirishcr@yahoo.com by Friday, November 27 to delete your registration and request a refund. As things evolve, we will continue to review our plans and stay in touch via this FB page. At this time we will not be accepting new dancer registrations.

Amazed at the resilience of these dancers. After some disappointing news last week- our DD is back at it- excited about new steps coming down the pike and smaller, achievable goals.

I was not surprised by, and supported the region's choice to cancel early- as the rest of them will likely follow, just later in the game- but I am surprised by how well the kids are managing this.

Children are amazing. We could learn something from them, I think.

Subject: Here's why I am frustrated with out Region (Inside)


Author:
DM
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 08:42:30 10/13/20 Tue

The lack of transparency from our Board is astounding. In what other sport or activity is the customer not centric to decisions and communication? If you have a dancer who is competitive, the average spend on tuition/class, private lessons, feis/travel, costume, shoes, etc is on average $5,000 - $10,000 per year. This a huge investment. I've often been told we can't "ruffle feathers." When you have a 5 person board seemingly making unilateral decisions that effect my child and my time/money, then I get frustrated and I shouldn't have to ruffle feathers to get answers.

Why aren't parents allowed to read Board meeting minutes? Why aren't parents allowed to attend zoom calls for an Open Session of a Board Meeting? Who was on the regional COVID Committee? Why couldn't an insurance policy be obtained? Who is the Doctor of Psychology they sought advice and what was communicated from that meeting? Without any information, I am left to make assumptions.

In the end, other Regions may or may not be able to hold an Oireachtas. But they are trying to make it work. Kudos to them. Our Board seemingly looked to find reasons to NOT hold the event, as opposed to asking how can we hold an event?

I have two other children in other sports/activities. The communication has been very transparent and their Boards have sought input and advice outside of their own team. Competitions look different but are happening (inside and outdoors). I feel badly for my dancer that she simply chose to fall in love with a sport whose operation is going the way of Blockbuster.

TCs are running a business. The Board is elected to represent the best interests of TCs and the ID community. This Board either: failed to communicate, failed to exhaust all options for this event or failed to serve the very group they were elected to represent. Maybe I'm wrong. But because everything is one big secret, I am going to guess I'm not.

Mid-America - still on, as far as I can tell.

Does anybody know anything further about whether Eastern Canada and Mid-America regions are really still going forward with their Oireachtasi in 2020?

I do not think it is lack of effort on the part of the organizers of NEO. The Hartford location is closed until the end of January. Massachusetts not an option and I believe they have looked in NH without success. I think all organizers want to have O, finding a suitable location is a challenge.

We thought someone may be interested in them. 59 issues total priced @ $7ea. Asking $60 (or offer) for all which includes shipping within the region. Email through link for more info and photos.

It’s is beyond shameful that Look by Danielle Guiden is not refunding dancer (parents) money for appointments that will not be used. I doubt the other very well known make-up artist with the same name would do the same AND she doesn’t require payment in advance. Saying you are out $$ for flights, hours worked to organization and so many other lame reasons is what’s wrong with people these days. These parents have spent so much more $$ than you, spent more time preparing than you and you will always be able to use your supplies or return possibly items purchased. This is what’s wrong with people these days!!!!! DO THE RIGHT THING AND BE THE CHANGE NOT THE PROBLEM

Does anyone knowwhen/if a decision will be made to cancel or postpone Worlds this year due to the virus? My daughter is worried that we may not be allowed back into the US if we go. Any thoughts? Is anyone else worried about this?

Subject: Did something happen during the OC 18+ comp at the New England Regional Feis yesterday? I see that it stated out with 19 competitors but 3 withdrew during the comp. Were there that many injuries? I assumed bad floors were to blame but I see only one other dancer withdrew in all the other comps combined.

Subject: Review of double fees weekend, for what it's worth. Clann Lir feis--extremely well organized. Results were super fast. Loved the medal round "medals" (black tape with a cute ribbon/sticker). Very useful (Reminds me of McInerney's shoe horn medals). MORE INSIDE

Loved that they had sashes for all placers. My DD is a "sometimes" OC placer, but rarely on podium so has very few sashes. Before this weekend, only Dunleavy Boyle did all-placement sashes. We love them. Would make us return to this feis again and again. The New England regional feis was back to sashes for only top three. And regular medals. In terms of the second feis, this venue is infinitely nicer than Saugus high school (Sorry Saugus!). We danced in Breton yesterday and Ballroom A today. Loved that Breton was set up in landscape mode and Ballroom A was "portrait mode," if you get my drift. Ballroom A was seriously a fire hazard. No-one could get in or out. WAY too crowded. We loved Clann Lir's feis. Would come back in a heart beat. If it remains a double feis weekend, we will do both. But two things might prevent us from doing that: first, the food in the venue was outrageously expensive. I mean outrageously. So, unless you want to get in a car and go downtown, it's going to cost A LOT. I know that the organizers have no say over that. No critique to them. Just a comment on whether we would do two nights there. Second, I love the idea of sharing judges between two feises. Makes sense. But, two of our three judges today were repeats from yesterday. When we have done double feis weekends in other regions they have always ensured that judges don't judge the same competitions. (We are in open). I know we were not promised this, but we were slightly disappointed.

I flew in for the double feis weekend. The feis has very friendly volunteers and is ran smoothly. Love the stages. One question I have is about costume rules. I thought they were the same in all regions. I saw a dancer that competed today in black but was wearing white poodle socks with her costume. My understanding was this disqualified you from your competition. I dont think its fair on other dancers that abide by the rules and then not have a dancer penalized when the break the rules. I know its dance and not everyone plays by the rules but when its an obvious one it should be taken into account.

Hello! Can anyone remind me what feisseanna are available in the greater Boston area (or, I guess, anywhere in MA or just over the border) in March and April? The only one listed on feisweb and on the NAFC site is the Newport one on March 1.
Thanks for any info!

The Open 18+ group is one of the largest open groups. Would the feis committees be open to splitting the comps to u20 and 20+. The u8, u9, u10 all have 1-3 dancers so really don't understand why the top 5 age groups get combined for 20 dancers.

Our school will be closing at the end of the year, but have not closed as of yet, they have referred us to other schools and some of the students have already switched. Will the ones that changed schools while there old school is still
Open will we have to go through the 6 month waiting period to compete?
