Author: same with other feiseanna, lately
Subject: However, to be very frank, people don't understand that feiseanna have to cover a lot of costs upfront; that comes from entries.What's more, is that more and more people hold off entering until a feis has to cut late fees, etc. for whatever reason.This feis always closed out by the start of the year
In reply to: need more money to cover costs. 's message, "The feis didn’t do this to be nice. They wrote a message that specifically said they are offering this because they" on 20:15:18 01/26/19 Sat

They added other things, too, hoping for entries, before putting out a second chance. Including it was, "nice" to do, even if there was a monetary reason behind it, in order to meet their expenses.

Post on the other region board had comments that many feiseanna saw a decline in entries last year of 10 - 20%. One poster challenged it, and the reply showed that it was the case.

Will agree that if this trend continues in this region, we will lose some very good competitive events. That will be a shame.
