Does anyone know if the Forbes Feis (end of October) typically follows a similar schedule from year to year, or whether it varies based on entries? Specifically I am curious when the oldest prelim group usually dances. I saw on Feisweb results that they danced in the mid-afternoon in 2015, but couldn't seem to find the results from earlier years. May be in the Boston area that weekend and want to see if I can squeeze in a feis! Thanks in advance!

Thank you for all those who attended the East Durham Feis. There were a few glitches but, with volunteers from several schools, we made it thru. Some of you may know, but because of a scheduling error on my part, the Feis was scheduled the same day as our daughter's wedding. Are we crazy? Maybe 😊... The champ results are in the first reply

Subject: Another Oireachtas Question/Observation


Author:
Amom
[ Edit | View ]

Date Posted: 07:52:22 08/24/16 Wed

I had a question, and not sure if someone who is on the committee will read this and be able to provide an answer. This is NOT a criticism because I think the committee runs a wonderful event. I am just curious.
In previous years, traditional set recalls seemed to be posted as they were tabulated throughout the day. Sometimes they were posted as early as after lunch. Over the past two years, I have noticed that the postings seem to happen much later in the day. I think last year the Friday postings went up just before 4pm, and that included the groups that danced first thing in the morning. I am not complaining because my kids enjoy the atmosphere and spending time with their friends. I suppose if you are there for the whole weekend it doesn't make a big difference. But many trad set families just come for the day, and it seems to be a long wait for the kids to find out they didn't place. Some of the kids were just so exhausted by this point that the disappointment of not recalling was even more intense. I know this is all part of competition and they need to learn to roll with it, but I am just wondering what changed in tabulation. Maybe I am wrong, but I am certain in our first couple of years the recall postings were earlier.
