  • Too much risk with randomized number cards. The flames and circles were not enough. The clown ranked his dancers with a new symbol on display. Even distributed patches to his cronies. A white-circled globe topped with a crown. Couldn't be more obvious -- No name (More Cheating AGAIN), 10:47:09 04/10/24 Wed [5]

  • VIVA LAS VEGAS -- Vagabond, 07:56:23 04/07/24 Sun [6]
    GA Girls traveling for upcoming feiseanna and haven't been in many years; Non-gamblers/non-smokers iso clean fun; staying at Park MGM and excited for All Shook Up Tribute on our final night (we Southerners love us some Elvis)! Planning to enjoy resort pools and visit Fremont Street on our one full day there before feis.

    Found some info on reddit/trip advisor, but would love Locals' input on the following, please and thank y'all:

    1. Unsafe areas to avoid in general

    2. Any places you take out-of-town guests as a "Must See"

    3. Where you go for a moderately-priced but tasty meal

    4. Any scams/crime tactics you've heard about on local news/social media (there always seem to be new ones popping up...)

    5. Any tips/tricks/hacks you'd like to share

    Unfortunately, we aren't there long enough to venture out of the city for mountain hiking or Hoover Dam tour...

    We appreciate and value our WR Irish Dance friends' input.

  • Please. Please. Please. 🙏 🙏 🙏 | please A Call for Change: An Open Letter to CLRG on Behalf of Our Young Dancers -- Please, 16:54:29 03/24/24 Sun [2]
    As judges, yourselves once dancers, you understand intimately the sacrifices made and the emotional toll exacted upon those who dance today. You’ve lived the pressure, the sacrifices, and the resilience required to compete at this level. This shared journey underscores the necessity for empathy and fairness in your judgments required to compete at this level.

    Reflect on the plight of many a young dancer, navigating their journey without guidance, their hearts ablaze with nothing but raw ambition and dreams. Amidst the shadows cast by recent scandals, it's paramount we remember not to tarnish these innocent souls with the same brush. Their only fault lies in a mere association with figures who may or may not have strayed from the path of integrity, not in any misdeed of their own.

    Consider, if you will, the distinction between the individual achievements of our dancers and the failings of their schools or teachers. These young ones, their efforts marred by sweat and tears, deserve our applause, not the shadow of others' indiscretions. And for those dancers forging ahead without the backing of any institution or mentor, their determination and talent shine even brighter.

    We find ourselves at a crossroads, the very essence of our beloved sport hanging in the balance, threatened by outdated norms and unfair practices. Speaking from the heart, as a parent whose introduction to Irish dance came through a child whose passion knows no bounds, I implore us to consider the future we're crafting. The path we're on, riddled with favoritism and unscrupulous actions, threatens the heart and soul of our tradition.

    The time is ripe for change, for a new chapter where a dancer's talent and hard work are the sole yardsticks for recognition, fostering a fair and just environment for all. Such a transformation is not just possible but necessary to safeguard the vibrancy and integrity of Irish dance.

    And securely taken straight from the judges tables safely, securely in an envelope to a secluded private room to be tabulated by feis worx or whatever entity is working the feis?

    I’ve seen it happen this way, where the feis runners were actually guided with another person delivering at a major tabulated by FW.

    Am curious why the recent feis was different.
