Subject: Another thing that boys go through is in small groups, at the oireachtas say, they announce to the whole room that you came in last. It takes a lot of confidence to stand on the podium in fifth of five and smile like it's an amazing result.

In my experience it IS a different sport. Boys competitions are smaller but boys who stay in ID tend to be very good. My son is a world qualifier and an open champ and we are never confident of a recall at the Oireachtas because the margin for error is so small. That is tough to face. I agree with the other posters. Those who make the snide comments make them either way. They complain that the competitions are small making it too easy to move up but then complain when the boys do compete with the girls in PC. Fortunately the boys and their families are so awesome it is worth a few snide comments for the wonderful friends and experiences he will have.

[> [> Thanks for your comments. We just got a snide comment this week about how my ds got 1st place. And it was from a "friend". So disheartening to be stabbed in the back by a friend. I won't be too happy if she or her kids say it so my ds hears! -- OP, 07:13:53 07/15/10 Thu [1]
