VoyForums Announcement: Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users' privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Author: Can't keep up with the Jonses'
Subject: It's not so much the bling though, we spend way more on extras in addition to our normal class fees. There's privates, workshops, extra classes before feis, before nationals and states, extra team classes on top of that, ever changing school shirts, tracksuits etc etc. You can't just do your two or three classes a week in t-shirt and shorts any more. It seems not a week goes by without an extra unexpected cost being sprung on us.
In reply to: Banish the bling and get back to basics 's message, "Precisely. Unfortunately, ID is no longer a viable sporting option for the every day family, and the numbers seem to be reflecting this. Feis fees, spectator fees, classes, dresses, wigs, tan, accessories, travel costs, accommodation: the list is endless. ID is now an exclusive sport in every sense of the word. It is sad to think just how many are missing out due to the costs involved." on Fri, Oct 12 2018, 23:07:58"
