Subject: Board Shut Down

Date Posted: 10:38:30 08/29/14 Fri

Hello Pageant Fans,

It is with mixed emotions that I'm informing you that I will be shutting down this board.

When I created this board it was after a week or so absence from the old NY board, and since no one stepped up, I figured I would. Here we are 8 months later with THREE NY boards, and as mentioned months ago, if I didn't feel my board was needed, I would shut it down. So here I am.

I LOVE the pictures and information and support this board offers, which is why I've kept it around so long, but it is tiring. Trying to make everyone happy is a full time job with no end in sight, that's for sure. I wanted people's honest opinions to be heard, but with dignity for those mentioned, and apparently you can't have both.

I know I have turned posters away because I called them out for being hypocrites, and I'm not sorry for it, but I am sorry if feelings were hurt. I don't know if they are responsible for the newest board, but whoever is moderating I wish them the best of luck, and lots of patience and maturity. Seeing the IP addresses of posters is a lot of power, and with it comes the responsibility to do what's right. I'm not claiming that I have always done the right thing, but as I close down this board which has become a huge hobby of mine, I feel it necessary to try to help those continuing their board endeavors.

It's lame to admit, but it's tough to let go, as this board was the first after the old board shut down, but it's petty and stupid to continue this board for that reason alone. I have plenty of things to focus on in my life, and honestly the drama behind these boards can't be one of them any more.

I wish both boards, and all moderators the best of luck with their boards. Thanks to all for the positivity, pictures, and support. I hope you find a nice new home with one of the other NY boards!

Much love,
Your Moderator

Subject: Competing in Other Pageant Systems

Date Posted: 10:06:52 07/08/14 Tue

First, I am from another state and wish to remain anonymous at this time...so this is not directed at anyone involved withNew York MAO. I just want an answer to a question, and want to remain discrete within my state.

According to the MAOT Contract, used at both the local and state level, and the MAOT Manual, once a girl has won a title at any level in her state, she is not allowed to compete in any similar pageant system at any level. The contract also provides specifics as to what "similar" means.

A girl in our state recently placed very high in the state MAOT competition, meaning that she has scholarship money, and other benefits. Turns out that after she won her preliminary, but prior to the state competition, she competed (and again placed highly but did not win) in a similar pageant system outside MAOT. It also appears that she did not report this to her State Director.

Should this be reported to the State or National MAOT Organization? It seems that she broke the rules, and then did not fess up. She placed higher than girls who followed the rules. In my opinion, she should be disqualified and be force to return anything she got at the state level at least, and possibly at the local level.

Is there an official position on this in New York, to anyone's knowledge? In other words, what are the potential (and likely ramification? If there are no ramifications, then the rule should not exist, and all MAOT contestants should be free to compete in any other pagents, even if they are titleholders within MAOT organization.

And, if this girl were our state's rep at the national level, would she be disqualified were this information to become public knowledge?

Again, I am inquiring from a different state. so please don't flame me about this. I just want an honest answer.

Thanks.

My daughter has been involved with Miss America in our home state for several years. She attends school in NY and is considering competing for a 2015 local in NY. This message board seems supportive so I was hoping I could ask a few questions.
Is there a new state board in place? Yes or no, is the board good to work with?
Is the state winner required to give up work and school for her year?
Where is the state pageant held?
NY is a big state, where are the majority of Miss State appearances?

Hello anonymous pageant people - this is Linda Dracker-Hochenberger, executive director of the Miss Syracse Organization.

I am, quite simply, fed up with the nonsense being posted about my organization on these boards. Everyone claims to not read the boards but we all do. I am told everything and know everything that is said. I don't own a board. I barely even comment on Facebook because of my painful and limited vision. This is the first time I am posting today and it's because I am finally annoyed enough to do so.

I believe I speak for all directors when I say this is a rewarding yet frustrating job. And to have it complicated by nonessential people hiding behind fake names and initials is ridiculous.

I resent having words be put into my mouth and opinions being attributed to me by people who aren't even brave enough to post their real names. I am a very approachable, honest, and dedicated individual. If you feel you need to say something to me then by all means, please call me at 315-457-7181. If you don't have the nerve to say it to my face or even from a computer screen with your actual name, then do us all a favor and be quiet.

All the girls deserve respect and awe for getting up in front of people and performing. All directors deserve respect for spending hours at this volunteer position. So either get on stage, start a local, or be quiet.

I had the opportunity tonight to see both Mis Staten Island and Miss New York at a charity Talent Show on Staten Island. It's easy to see what they came out on top. They were both charming, gracious, funny and genuine....and of course, ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! They posed for pictures, chatted with everyone, especially the kids and seemed to be very friendly with each other. So nice to see!

Nina's yellow gown has already become sort of iconic. She carried over Gaspar Cruz's design to Atlantic City & it was a smash triumph. This year....

Kira's gown is receiving lots of talk on Pageant Guru. Seems as though her mother made it. The consensus is that folks like the instincts behind the design yet would like to see a more upscale replica for top marks. Bearing this in mind, my question is two-part: A) Will Kira wear a similar design in Atlantic City & B) If not, what sort of design would you suggest for her competition evening gown at Miss America?

Kira competed for the Miss New York City/Cosmopolitan pageant. I got that. Her local sash stated: Miss New York City. This I understand. What I don't get is why she was referred to at the pageant and referred to now, in a former sense, as Miss City of New York. Did I miss something?

So, we all see it happen. The judges are announced, the prelim winners get their awards, and your top 10/top 5 prediction list is officially decimated. The Road to Miss America Board and posts surrounding it got me thinking about the changes that occur between pre-prelim and post prelim lists. So here is my pseudo RTMA challenge for you:

Post (with a handle, please!) your top 10 for Miss NY, denoting your top 5 in order from 4RU to MNY. You will have until 12:00 am Thursday evening/Friday morning to post your lists to be "considered". Please label your post starting with- Pre-Prelim Miss NY Challenge Thread

After prelims (but obviously before the pageant finals), you may elect to post your NEW top 10 and top 5, with the same handle, titled- Post-Prelim Miss NY Challenge Thread

I think this might be a fun way to see how prelims and knowledge of judges affects our thinking the day of the pageant. Predict away, avid Miss NY fans!

As predicted, Miss NY is anyone's game this year. There were a lot of truly special moments from the contestants, but there isn't an across-the-board standout. It makes for an exciting competition. Here are my thoughts/predictions after last night.

Jillian: Talent win was well-deserved, and she was in my top 5 for EG and SS. Her OSQ wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either. I think she's got the scores for a top 5 finish.

Julia Rae: Great OSQ and EG, her SS and talent were fine and good enough to get her the scores for a top 5 placement. My wish for her is that she take the "pageant" out of her talent piece. It's a little old-fashioned in it's presentation, but good enough to win.

Desiree: Consistently strong across the board, so another top 5 placement is likely. I can't put my finger on why I'm just a little lukewarm with her. She just didn't have that "A-HA!" moment for me where she connected/resonated with me. This could hurt her in the top 5 ballot, but if she finds that special moment tonight, she could take the crown.

Stephanie: This is the girl that had a few "A-HA!" moments last night. Her OSQ was, for me, the best of the bunch - funny, sincere and articulate. Her talent presentation was simply beautiful (the best dancer for me). She just seemed so emotionally connected to everything she was doing on stage. Her SS and EG were top 10 worthy, made better by execution and presentation. Solid top 10 for me and could squeak into the 5 with a repeat performance tonight.

Cat: Talent win was also well-deserved and OSQ was pretty good. SS and EG might keep her from the Top 5, but she is very likable on stage, so she too could squeak in there.

Kira: SS win was a no-brainer for me. OSQ was among the best. Her talent and EG, however, are love or hate it propositions. I think she'll get the benefit of the doubt in both and land in the Top 5, but I'm just not convinced that she'll get the nod in final ballot - but her winning wouldn't surprise me.

Christina: SS was great and everything else was really solid. She's a lock for the top 10 and maybe the Top 5. My biggest concern with her is that everything she does on stage seems so calculated and "performed". It's charming at first, but as time goes on, I find myself disconnected and just not quite buying it. If she can find a way to give the judges open access to who she is, she could emerge victorious...but it's going to be hard to get there in such a short period of time.

Jamie M. She's never looked better in EG and SS (easy top 10 in both). Her OSQ was top 10 of the night, but not terribly memorable. Her talent for me was good, but I've seen better from her. It lacked the emotional connection she usually has and I just felt she was going through the paces. She does have a likability factor and I see her making the Top 10, but she doesn't scream Miss New York to me based on what I saw last night.

Claudette: She shines on stage and will probably get into the Top 10, but I think talent, while not objectionable, will give the judges pause and may keep her from going any further.

The tenth spot is up for grabs between Katelynn, Olivia, Sarah and possibly Nina or Courtney.

Tonight's going to be really interesting - good luck to all those competing. Even though I have distinct opinions and personal favorites, I wouldn't be surprised by anything tonight.

I was just looking at all the contestant's Miss NY pictures. I have to say...what is happening with some of those outfits...and the shoes? There is clearly a distinction between the girls as to who is ready for the job of Miss NY. Oh my to some of them.

Who do you think will take SS, EW, and TALENT? Usually they announce the top two.

I'm sorry....I have a slight issue when contestants running for the title Miss NY hash tag other states home. If that's the case, run in that state.

Date Posted: 11:12:39 05/17/14 Sat

Here's what I'm feeling along with rationale, going in order off of the top of the board's collage:

Courtney- She probably has a solid interview, and is very present in on stage competition. She also has previous state pageant experience.
Christina- Sometimes she can be hit or miss for me, depending on her stage presence. I feel like she is a definite T 10 this year, and could go further.
Sarah- Despite her long journey to get a local title, I see something special in this girl. If her on stage questions are any indication of her interview, she will be a forced to be reckoned with in that phase, and we all know that's really where it's won. Pulling for at least a T10 for Sarah.
Desiree- She will probably be a lock for T5 again. Beautiful girl, consistent placement in competitive years, and a solid scorer. Something missing in her on stage personality, which is why I don't think it's her year to take it all, but anything could happen.
Claudette- Her collegiate credentials are very impressive. I can see her doing well in interview, which could propel her into a T10 spot.
Jamie- I don't know much about her, but I do know she has competed and made top 10 in Virginia, which (at least in the past) is a competitive pageant state. With that experience, I'm sure she could make T10 easily.
Julia- Also one I don't know much about, but if her MAOT experience and placement is any indication, she should do well.
Kira- IMO, she is just too pretty not to make it. She has infectious stage presence and glows. Jury is still out for me on T5 for her, pending talent, but I think T10 is a no brainer.
Jillian- Probably the talent winner for this year's pageant. She has lots of experience in another competitive state (FL) and I think T5 is a very plausible guess for her. Could take it all, if her interview is strong enough.
Jamie- She seems to have on and off years too. I think this year is an on year. Something about her in photos just radiates a genuine person, and some of her appearance photos give me a Kaitlin Monte vibe. Pending circumstances, I could see her T10, T5, Non-finalist, or Miss NY. I'm hoping it's an on year for her, as I think she could do a lot with the title, if given the chance,

Bubblers:
Anneliese- She is so stunning and well put together. I think she might need more experience before she can be a serious contender, but I wouldn't be surprised at all to see her beautiful face in the T10.
Cat- She seems to have a complete package, but I'm not quite sure if it can be matched with some of the other girls competing. I could also see her in the 10 without being surprised.
Olivia- I like everything about this girl, but think she's too young and might need more experience. There are always Teresa Scanlins and Kirsten Haglunds in the world, though, maybe she's one of them? Wishing her all the best at her first state pageant.

What're your thoughts? Who's in your T10 and why? Let's keep it positive people…two weeks and counting!

I just want to put this out there: ladies, please don't think that you "have this in the bag". There are several of you who think that this crown is "your due". Be modest and let the chips fall where they may. You are all amazing young women and any one of you may become Miss NY. There's nothing uglier than someone expecting something they clearly need to earn. Crow doesn't taste pleasant. End rant.

Date Posted: 11:48:01 04/17/14 Thu

A few more questions, some hypothetical, some I genuinely don't know the answer to:

1) Will there be a top 10, or 11? If so, are they continuing people's choice?
2) Who do you think would win people's choice?
3) Anybody know who is emceeing?
4) Will Nina be in attendance? I believe Mallory was last year.
5) Will there be production numbers for all phases of competition? I thought I heard no production numbers were taught at workshop. It's totally plausible to teach them all during production week but I was just curious.

Thanks for any insight!

I've noticed within the past few days at least three situations where people who are publicly associated with MAO are participating in other pageant competition systems. I see in the contract that Miss titleholders are contracted to obtain from competing in other systems (ie, glitz, USA, International) but does this pertain to directors or Teen contestants?

i have no objection to girls competing in other systems after they age out. But doesn't it make sense that while you are representing the Miss America local organization, you are a spokesmodel for for this Organization and not using the MAO name to further yourself in other systems?

Just another topic for discussion (this is NOT PROVOKED. No current titkeholder has led me to bring this topic to the table, so please do not point fingers or tarnish crowns): being a titleholder is a great responsibility. You are contractually a rolemodel, a spokesmodel, an advocate, and an employee. You are representing an organization that is nearly 100 years old. Many jobs require drug testing on their employees. Same for sports, even if they are not performance enhancing.

Questions to think about:
-Should contestants or titleholders be tested for drug use? If so, when, and at what level of the competition?
-Does a local/state ED have the right to request/demand this as a requirement for employment?
-Would the three states with legal marijuana use be exempt from a nation wide Organization rule, or would they be required to stay away as well?
-Can a titleholder still be a good Queen in the public if she participates in recreational drug use in the privacy of her home?
-Could this lead to further rules on tobacco & alcohol?
