Author: the judges and the feis for being on time and running smoothly
Subject: Was there.The judges wanted to keep going. You are talking about a comp that was "after lunch" not "later in the day." It was the judge's decision, because they were ahead of schedule. If that is so desperately awful for you, then what happens to you if a comp runs two hours behind? Applaud both
In reply to: Two years in a row? Yes. Done. 's message, "They didn't run ahead of schedule - they moved up a comp that was later in the day which significantly altered the timing." on 07:26:50 08/14/17 Mon

Don't think it was personally directed at your or your dancer. For you to go off on "two years in a row" - well, then, it's on you. You should have anticipated a similar possibility occurring, again. Sorry, you didn't plan appropriately, that's is not the fault of the feis. They, and the judges, kept things moving right along.

There was nothing that stated they would hold comps, etc. either. There were no set times posted for any of the comps. If you used any stage calculator, they have disclaimers clearly stating that the estimated times are not to be used as a guaranteed, specific time.

Here are some helpful tips to you:

If a comp is scheduled as last on a stage, odds of it being moved to another stage is always there - and that, too, would run much earlier than expected.

If a comp is scheduled for after lunch, odds of it running earlier is there, just as it could have gone off much later.

You, as the adult, have to plan for any eventuality.

Do you plan for tie-ups on the highways? Car breaking down?
Do you plan for someone (God forbid) being injured and holding up a stage for an hour?
Do you plan for someone getting ill on the stage?
Do you plan for others not attending, so numbers in earlier comps change up?
Do you plan?

So, it ran ahead of schedule and the judges wanted to continue to the next comps to keep things moving. It happens. Just like a feis can run hours behind, too.

There are no set guarantees with any schedule.

To say you won't return because it ran ahead of what you expected, well, that is pretty petty. Would bet there are other issues and this is just an excuse.
