The Lenihan teachers would like to thank our wonderful adjudicators and musicians for a fabulous day on Sunday! We also would like to send a huge thank you to all of our parents and dancers who volunteered their time throughout the day and on Saturday at feis set-up. We couldn't run a successful feis without you! Many thanks to all who attended the feis, we hope you enjoyed the day and we look forward to welcoming you back in the fall!

Truly appreciate the emphasis during awards that Patty places on the love of dance and applauding all dancers. No matter their placement that day, all the dancers are working hard and that acknowledgement is nice (and too rare).

Also liked the fact that some stages were switched around so the later competitions could get started sooner and it wasn't a terribly late day.

It's a hike for us, but we always do our best to make it to this feis. Thank you!

[> Subject: The yelling of "NO tap-tapping" every few minutes in the Auxiliary Gym was a bit excessive. I was in that gym for hours. No dancers were "tap tapping" in their heavy shoes. Dancers walked cross the floor to check in for comps in their heavies. That's it. If the acoustics in that gym are so terrible for the judges and musicians it should not be used. The nonstop scolding of dancers and parents was off putting

[> [> Subject: Respectfully disagree - dancers often warm up in hard shoes and unfortunately do so often within earshot of a stage in competition - sometimes also right beside musician. Has to be aggravating to a musician trying to listen to, or follow a metronome. It would be easier for a musician to hold back each time and wait for dancers on the floor to have the silence and attention they deserve, but in that case the feis would still be running right now. Either way, nobody would be happy.

[> Subject: Can we also just say that the feis calculators do actually work? Auditorium ran as people calculated(even a litltle later) with last company starting after 4:30. Feis committee stated on here all would be done by 4:30 and that the feis calculators add too much time

Arrived a lot earlier than needed bc of that.

[> [> [> Subject: Well no, the calculator had the last comp ENDING at 6:36, not beginning. Auditorium finished at about 6:15, so not far off (although calculator didn't include lunch which I'm assuming they did take a break for at some point)

but still closer than the 4:20 estimate

[> [> [> Subject: I did use the calculator and had my DD comp ending at 6:36. Then the Feis Committee posted that they expected the stage to end at 4:30 and indicated they would move comps and that the calculator puts a lot of pad in. The comps ran according to the calculator and were not moved and the stage ultimately ended within 15 minutes of what we had calculated and 2 hours after the end time they posted.

[> Subject: This has been a very good Feis - one that we have made a point of attending for many years. The only thing found lacking was the music in Auditorium. Many Sets were not played at correct speed.

Oh well.
