Author: number of competitors is the first thing
Subject: Time was you arrived at the feis to find out the order of the day. Then some using boards released a schedule the night before. People worked with sports, family events, and more back then, too, when expenses were ever tighter. Nothing special about today's times. A schedule is based on many things
In reply to: If feis organizers were to post a proposed schedule for their feis when syllabus is released... 's message, "Feis schedules" on 14:12:12 10/01/18 Mon

Can't fully do a schedule unless that is known.

Then, available stages and rooms at a venue.

A feis is not the money maker that most make them out to be. Most feiseanna barely clear costs of running. That's why there are no refunds for no-shows - most would go completely into the red if that occurred - and then they would no longer be run.

What about rescheduling your other events or ask them to move those to another date? Or provide a detailed time schedule for a game or event? That's what you are asking the feiseanna to do, isn't it?

Feis dates are pretty much cast in stone from year to year, just like the O's and the NANS. Feis dates are posted through NAFC months and months in advance. It's easy to plan around going to the best ones and then if dates work, try some new ones.

We could follow UK/Ireland feis format (for most over there) - where they do day of entries - no schedules posted or available ahead of time unless it's a two-day one, and then they'll put grades on one day and champs on another - that's it. Some feiseanna will start oldest to youngest, some youngest to oldest, no standard and nothing more -

You go, pay up front that day and then set about until your dancer's comp and that could be 10 pm or even later. They only give trophies to top three or five and a ribbon-less medal to other placers in champs. Grades may get a medal or if lucky, a trophy for a special. Few have sashes or rounds awards.

  • Yes, we'd be more likely to sign up if we knew ahead of time even whether her group was morning or afternoon. I can't risk having conflicts where we lose money on one thing or another. I don't expect feis committees to tell in advance, but it is definitely something that stops us. (NT) -- dm, 15:00:17 10/01/18 Mon
