[> [> Subject: They haven't pulled the plug on it but I can't imagine it taking place. Also I read somewhere that if even one O can't take place, the ones that do take place can't be qualifiers because some regions would be unfairly denied their chance. So if it's not a qualifier because the South and the West have chosen not to control their covid outbreaks, then it just becomes a big feis. Not sure if that's true or not.

I doubt they have made a definitive decision about a November event in August. If schools are allowed to open and remain open, numbers remain low, masks and social distancing continue to be utilized in the NE to good effect- why wouldn't they hold a modified Oireachtas with proper planning and adhering to standardized guidelines?

[> [> [> Subject: You are aware, I assume, that U10s around the world have been notified if they have been deemed WQs for 2021 based on 2019 results. According to what I have read, if any one region in the world is unable to hold their Oireachtas, none of the others will be considered qualifiers. The chances of every region in the world being able to hold their Oireachtas this year are about zero.

I doubt the accuracy of that statement unless you have read something directly from CLRG.

It is 2020, though- I suppose nothing should surprise us. I choose to have hope but certainly, planning for the worst case scenario is another valid way of coping with a very difficult situation.

I hope for all of us a safe Oireachtas in November. Whether or not it happens, it's a good goal to work towards for our children - even as we prep them that there is a possibility it may not happen. Because...Covid-19...they all know this. We all know this.

I accept that you may not think this way, but it's ok for those of us that choose to be hopeful to continue to try to think through all of this, particularly since we've heard nothing concrete from the governing body that says otherwise.

[> [> [> [> [> Subject: I've read info from two different sources stating that if any one region is unable to hold their Oireachtas this year, all of the other Oireachtasi automatically become non-qualifiers. This makes sense as it would be unfair for some regions to have the chance to qualify while others do not. You've read way more into my post than was written and are attributing opinions to me that I did not express. Not sure why. I simply explained why I do not believe there will be Oireachtasi.

[> [> [> [> [> [> Subject: I find this fairness argument curious. Why is everyone all up in arms about how unfair it would be for some regions to qualify but not others, but somehow allowing kids who danced in a non-qualifying year to qualify is not unfair to this year's U10s? Why is one fairness issue prioritized one another?

It would be unfortunate for us, but knowing the hard work that goes in, would not want others to miss out. Also, wouldn’t want to have Oireachtas happen and not be a qualifier. Imagine those kids who land in qualifying positions but don’t get to qualify. That would be crushing.

Knowing that an O is Not a qualifier shifts a lot of things for a lot of families. If a child has outgrown a dress during the pandemic- would you buy a new one knowing that the O is just a big feis and that, by extrapolation, AI would just be a big feis too, if it was run? I think a lot of parents would be inclined to borrow a dress or have their kid dance in blacks if it is just a big feis. Practice time allocation would shift a lot as well. We also need time to prep our dancers for this - it would be a huge blow to have the O happen and have it not be a qualifier for those that just missed the mark in 2019. If this is the decision, fine... - but give us some lead time to manage the effects of this, along with all of the other pandemic disappointments.

I know they can't completely predict if the O will run (due to the pandemic) but surely they should let parents know as soon as a decision has been made as to the qualifying status of this event.

syllabus was recently posted after Mid America realized the location was not cancelling the venue, so they were contractually obligated to hold the event. we may not have an O due to Covid-19 restrictions,but surely if we do, it will be a qualifier.
