Subject: Exactly! It was a light-hearted post in response to someone joking their teachers would have a nice service for 12 with the plates that are coming. So I joked ours would have enough for a banquet (big school). It was supposed to be funny. Where in the heck did "favors" come into play?
In reply to: -- 's message, "Where in their post did they say favors? They said they have a big school.. You (or someone else) imagined the favors." on 03:34:54 08/14/21 Sat

And it just so happens we had at least one dancer who was expected to WQ who barely recalled at all, so she didn't qualify for a plate. We had other dancers who also WQ usually but didn't and will receive one of the plates. Where were the favors for them? Our teachers play by the rules and most assuredly wouldn't cheat to get high placements for their dancers and sure as heck not just so their dancers get to take home a plate. 35% of the dancers who competed get a plate. Our school is large. We had a lot of dancers recall. Most of the recallers will receive a plate. Thus my joke. But we also had a lot of dancers NOT recall.

Consequently, the primary reason our school is large is that our teachers have studios in several large cities that don't have other Irish dance schools, but plenty of people who love Irish dance. There is literally no competition! Our school is just a school. We do have dancers who world qualify, but most don't even come close. The person making these rude, snarky comments has some serious issues & they're ruining this VOY board with their misery.
