In reply to: dd 's message, "Well run ... would be nice if you placed a few more in Prizewinner.. group or 20 with 1,2,3 in each maybe place 1,2,2,3 ,3,3 and a few 4.th like most Feis do.. people travel a distance to go and enjoy it but with just 3 placements I think was a major let down for a lot of dancers .... I would pass on this next year not worth the $$$" on 07:50:30 07/24/17 Mon

1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th.... like they do in Prelim and Open, the medals would have to be given that way. They couldn't give a 2nd place medal to a dancer who scored say 79 in the reel, then also to another dancer who scored 76 in the reel (if that was the next hightest score)- it wouldn't be fair to the dancer who score the 79. The only way that would work was if both dancers scored a 79- then both would get a 2nd place medal. It would be up the feis organizers whether they wanted to extend medals to placements other than top 3. Placements in the grades are different than placements in Champs. I totally understand that it is a bummer to leave without a placement. Maybe encouraging organizers to extend placements to 5th or 6th place might be a good idea. Just remember that once your dancer gets into the Champ level, that it is an all or nothing scenario.

[> [> Subject: Really? Dd prefers the feises that give the fewest placements. Used to love a particular feis in CT that once gave 1 first, 1 second and 2 thirds to her group of 35. Placements meant more to her when they weren't automatically handed out to 50%.

to each her own

[> [> [> Subject: Agree. Honestly at this point my prizewinner dancer only cares about first place. She's happy to see how close she comes to that covered first when she gets her marks, but she's not really as excited about a 3rd place as she was when she was in AB, especially if they place 50%

Eyes on the prize
