Subject: What makes you choose to attend a feis?

So I'm curious about what makes you attend a feis? All but one of my daughters is done dancing and we choose which feis to attend by proximity mostly since we don't do a lot any more, but that's just me. Back in the "busy" years (trying to get out of Prize winner/Prelim) we picked by which judges would be there (not that it mattered) and the feis history. (Daughter did well there before. nice venue, etc.)
Do people pick based on the "extras" like treble reel comps or Prelim set comps?
If it's an outdoor feis, do you avoid it if you are out of grades (we didn't)?
I'm curious as to what people look for now as I'm not in the thick of things anymore.
Thanks for the input!

[> Subject: We're usually up for any good feis within a 3-hour drive. In pre-covid days we'd started skipping the outdoor ones as they were often either too rainy, too muddy or too hot. But now, after missing out on so many during the pandemic, we're pretty much up for anything,

[> Subject: When she was younger, DD loved to feis anywhere and everywhere, did all the specials, etc. I think it was more of it was a fun way to spend the day at the feis with friends; now as an older WQ, she no longer does comps where all the judges are local. She is more selective because her reason to feis is to get a variety of comments and feedback from different perspectives

[> Subject: In addition to what others have said, i like double feis weekends backed up to a school holiday, I also consider the timing if we are free that weekend, I hate when 2 feiseanna are planned for the same day and they are both close to me. I want to go to both, but can’t!
