In reply to: Different with PW to PC, correct? 's message, "Isn't the PC-OC-PC rule that once you compete in OC, you have to stay there for 2 years before you can return to PC if you don't place?" on 09:15:45 06/04/18 Mon

--14. Entrants in any Championship event may not enter in any other (Grade) events, but may enter in Figure Dances. Entrants in Championships should specify, on the entry form, their choice of set dance. Entrants cannot change competition or category on the day of the competition.
a) Dancers must qualify for open championship via the method now in place for preliminary championship, i.e. two 1st place wins.
b) Dancers must compete in the preliminary championship competition in order to qualify for open championship
c) The regional syllabus where the Feis is being held may have different qualifications for entry.
--15. Combining male and female dancers in any age category is left to the discretion of each region of the IDTANA.
--16. Preliminary Championships are open to those who, at any NAFC recognized Feis:
a) Have won 1st place in both an open/prizewinner light and heavy shoe competition, and
b) Have never won 1st, 2nd or 3rd in Open Championship. A dancer who wins two first place awards will move on to Open Championship at the next Feis they enter, or as soon as the second win is achieved, in any age category, in the following years. Only in the case of back-to-back Feiseanna (successive days), in which case the first win in the first Feis will not change the dancer’s status for the second Feis. A dancer is required to perform a light shoe dance (reel or slip jig for ladies and reel only for men), and a hard shoe dance. A Feis can opt to offer either a) a set dance or b) a jig/hornpipe.
c) The regional syllabus where the Feis is being held may have different qualifications for entry.
--17. Championships and Preliminary Championships require at least three adjudicators.
--18. First place winners in the Open Championship category cannot return to a Preliminary or Open (Prizewinner) competition. Placing in a Regional or National Oireachtas does not change the status of a competitor. A dancer who moves into open championship must stay a minimum of 2 years. If after 2 years they have not placed they are allowed to return to preliminary. An open championship dancer who places is not allowed to return to preliminary until 2 years after their last placement. The regional syllabus where the Feis is being held may have different qualifications for entry.
--19. The status of the dancer does not change unless there are five or more dancers in a competition.
The result of deliberately lying or "falsifying" information is pretty severe:
--3. A competitor may be disqualified for any of the following reasons:
a) Conduct unbecoming a lady or gentleman.
b) Failure to report on time to compete. (Penalty: disqualification from said event)
c) Falsification of age or other important facts – i.e., teaching, award winning, competing under another competitor’s name or number, etc.

Penalty for a) or c): Competitor will be disqualified from the Feis at which the occurrence happened and from all NAFC – registered Feiseanna for a period of one year beginning at the date of the occurrence.

If the dancer is not banned for a year, then something else may have occurred.

Have seen some feiseanna that will let a dancer "dance for comments" along with another level or age, but the dancer would not/should not have received any award.

Unless you know for certain and have documented evidence, then the best recourse is to really MYOB, you can only make yourself look bad by pointing fingers in error. There is so much micro-managing of everyone else in ID for some reason. And there is so much gossip and hearsay. If this is something that bothers you, go to your TC and report it; lodge a complaint at a feis; lodge a complaint with the region. And you better have all your information straight. Or, simply MYOB.
