Author: AND you missed the whole point
Subject: Loving the absolute arrogance of some of you. You are now trying to deflect the thread and fault those who called you out on your pomposity. It has nothing to do with jealousies, but how wonderful for you demean and put others down in that manner. You must be awfully proud of yourself for doing so.
In reply to: Dm 's message, "Are the younger age groups usually towards end of week for NAIDC? When are the days usually released? Trying to plan ahead. Thanks!" on 16:01:28 07/23/17 Sun

that people have posted.

That is - you'll not get a day by day schedule at this time. To publish one at this point would be irresponsible by the committee. There are so many other things to consider.

As others have tried to say, several times, and there have been a number of replies about this, but the couple of you who keep on protesting (demanding) to know when a days schedule to suit yourselves. Most of us have worked with whatever has come out over the years.

You folks would have never made it years ago, when a schedule wasn't really posted until after May.

And sadly, you have no idea of the process or are just simply short-sighted to understand it. A good committee is going to wait until they had a good idea of the numbers that could possibly enter -- not the actual entries. That comes from the regionals (aka the O's) Once those numbers are processed, the committee then looks at the judging and those judges who have accepted the invites and then the possible conflicts - all those schools have to be advised, and those dancers are removed from the counts. Then they have to figure in those who sat out the previous year.

Once all that is figured out and usually those numbers are going to be much higher than the actual entry numbers, they can best calculate the time needed for particular comps and schedule appropriately.

Setting a days' schedule before any of this will lead far lengthy days, problems with schedules and more. Those very few years when a committee released a days' schedule before having the numbers or the judges figured have always run into delays with competitions and days ran into late nights.

Think about it and learn to be more understanding and flexible. We all have work issues, but guess what? The majority of us work with it. And when it doesn't work out, we simply don't go. It's just like not being able to go with a judging conflict. You get over it.

Personally, thinking the complainers are really a few, still kind of new to all of this parents who are inexperiences and ignorant of the process. If this were a soccer tournament, would you be demanding a day and time schedule a year ahead? No, you would have the days, but not when your team would be exactly playing. Why would you be as demanding for Irish dancing? The committee has given you a window to work with.

Please stop deflecting this from yourselves. it makes you look childish and really spoiled as another poster pointed out.
