Subject: Really want to sign up for the Forbes Feis, but last year the champ stage was so bad they had to put an x on a section that was undanceable. Any word about whether this situation will be rectified? I can't remember if they build a stage on the floor or if it's just marley (hopefully) on what's already there.

Last year my daughter danced later in the day and the judges appeared to be bored, tired, whatever ... didn't seem to look up to watch the dancing and seemed to make up their minds before the dancing started. It was disappointing, so we're hoping for an earlier start this year!

[> Subject: The past two years when we've gone it was marley over the current floor. There are several "holes" in that floor where outlets, etc are. We aren't returning until we hear that they've fixed the issue by putting flooring under the marley and over the stage. It's a shame as it's a decent feis otherwise.

The feis committee has been in contact with the school department. We have be assured that there will be no imperfections in the floor. If any imperfections or cracks are found we will be prepared to build a stage over the exsiting flooring during setup.
Thank you. We look forward to seeing you at the Forbes Fall Feis!

So glad the issue has been resolved. I wish the Feis Committee would have advertised this fix when the feis opened. We picked an out of region feis over Forbes this year because the stage was so dangerous in prior years. Would have preferred to support a local feis, but didn't want to risk an injury so close to Oireachtas. Kudos to the Feis Committee for getting it addressed.

Looking for competition with dancers from own specific age group that close to Oireachtas. Current numbers seem like there would be enough to hold individual competitions (u17,u18,18+)just curious if there's any chance of comp being split this way? Looking at other feis options, all seem to have individual age groups. TIA
