Why don't the hosts of feiseanna in New England raise the age of the oldest open groups. Tired of having to compete in 16+ or 17+ groups with large numbers when they allow less than 5 dancers in the younger groups without combining. Will be travelling to MAR to attend feiseanna who give the older dancers the respect they deserve.

And since she is still growing, can I remove them and attach them to the next one? We have six or so now just sitting around and she finally wants me to put them on a jacket. I have no idea how.
