Subject: The purpose of the second chance is just that - a second chance to compete to try and get the wins required to move up. It's POOR sportsmanship, if your dancer already have their required wins, to compete in the second chance & take a chance away from someone that's trying to get their wins. The right thing to do if you've already paid but have earned all your wins is to step aside/bow out of the second chance competition - sacrifice the fees ($35.00-40.00) - for the sake of the other dancers & their families.
In reply to: MAM 's message, "Re: Second chances...why do people do them when they have already won multiple times??" on Wed, October 09, 02:49:00pm

Don't teach your kids to be greedy by setting an example like this – everyone wants a sash & trophy, but no one wants them more than the dancer(s) that haven’t had one yet or need one more to move up. Remember back to when your dancer needed their wins to move up and that one competitor that wouldn’t move up to let yours come through – now imaging that happens to your dancer TWO times every feis. It’s not fair and poor sportsmanship – Let’s set a positive example for fairness going forward.
