Subject: I'll only do comps with 2nd chance now. more inside
In reply to: Lets be real 's message, "I realize I may be beating a dead horse here but when is this region going to do something about the 2nd chance comps?" on 15:49:59 07/22/19 Mon

The hard reality is that judging is subjective and we avoid Feis that have certain judges. Except now with the guarantee of a different panel, we know that we will avoid certain judges at least at one of the comps. Look, it's too expensive to spend the entire day with a judge you know will tank your child. This way, we can still go to local feis. Another thing to consider is that older teens who may get stuck in prelim for years have goals and many want to reach open before they retire when they graduate and perhaps have one nationals experience. The 2nd chance gives more opportunity.

We are loving the 2nd chance. I hope it continues. I've rarely seen both comps won by the same child either. And my child was tanked and last at one chance then on the podium with the 2nd panel. It shows that it's about the judging not the dancing in most cases!
