In reply to: 's message, "I agree. Great Feis. Grades ran smoothly and had generous placements. Champs had nine different judges with tons of personal feedback just before Nationals." on 08:26:51 06/18/17 Sun

I agree that the Feis ran really well and was very quick for grades, and we do love all of the MG competitions. While it was nice for Champs to have the nine different judges, at least one of the grades stages had the the same judge all day (and she gave no comments/ suggestions - which when they dance 3 at a time is probably difficult to do). Regardless of which Feis we are at, and I realize it goes more quickly this way, dancing 3 at a time on a standard stage is very crowded. Wasn't an issue in the younger ages, but as they get older and the legs get longer you can see the dancers holding back because of lack of space, and of course they are all trying to be at the front. Overall, nice Feis...see you at Halloween!

Regardless of age, once the dancers are leaping, kicking and throwing birds across the stage, this becomes a safety issue. Safety aside, I imagine it is very difficult for one judge to fully watch three dancers at the same time, and provide comments. The results always seem wonky, and feedback is minimal. Great feis, but I hope they rethink this change!

[> [> [> [> Since all grades were done by 2pm, I think we can definitely accommodate these suggestions and reduce it 2 at time for the older age groups ... that is a fair request ... rough math shows it would extend the day about 90 minutes longer meaning we would still be done by 3:30pm with grades -- Watch the Halloween Feis Syllabus for details...
