That we pay for a competition and it’s the only competition that does not receive the same awards as everyone else? Please remember there are dancers who rarely place in prelim and also dancers that due to family scheduling or financial reasons cannot attend a lot of feisanna . If they place in second chance prelim they should be receiving the same awards that anyone would receive that day. Although it’s nice that O’Rourke read this post and listened, they didn’t listen clearly enough...they are still giving something that will disappear (gift card and candy), not something that the dancer will hang on her wall and place on her bureau. Again, some dancers rarely place after prize winner and if they do place then it is a big moment for them. When I saw O’Rourke post that they would give gift certificates I thought it was because there wasn’t time to order sashes or trophies. But then this morning they posted that entries were closed and they would now work on schedule and ordering trophies. Really??? So there’s still time to order enough for second chance? Don’t waste your money on gift cards and candy, order them at least a small trophy! Or a sash! Or print out a certificate...that’s not expensive! They don’t need a lot but they need something to treasure!
