Here's my assessment and understand of what happened at the feis.

- Venue is very nice and works well for the competitions. Lot's of parking and good size.

- On Saturday, both the grades and the champs on the set stage had great difficulty hearing the music. On the 2nd day, it was slightly better, my kids were not complaining about it.

- Although the changing of the set judges was a good idea, I do believe that it added some complexity to the tabulation team at the feis. Either the computers were down or it couldn't handle the set up, but I don't envy the folks that had to pick up pencils and figure out how to calculate the results by hand.

In the end, I believe the results were calculated by using the first 2 dances as 50% of points and set as 50% of points. They handed out 2 sheets and if you added the 2 point scores (out of a total of 600 points), you would get the placements. It was painfully slow to get results on the first afternoon/night but the 2nd day they clearly got into the rhythm. They also announced the corrections for placements on the previous day which was really the only right thing to do. There was also a power failure Saturday night which I was told interfered with them getting some of the errors corrected that evening so they were doing that on Sunday as well.

Anyhow, that is my understanding of what happened. Having volunteers for feis before, I felt for them and understand that sometime, things like this just happen.

I would go again. They are now likely the best score tabulators in the region! lol
