Ryan-Kilcoyne School of Irish Dancing
The yearly feis is a big undertaking for our school. We need everyone's help to make it a success. We are requiring that each family volunteer at least four (4) hours of their time either before and/or during the feis on Saturday, October 13th.
Here is a description of the 2018 Feis Committees:
Entries: (2018 Chairperson - Kathy Franklin) Help is needed the day of the feis to distribute competitor cards, assist with general entry problems, and provide general information as competitors arrive.
Stage Monitors/Runners: (2018 Chairperson - Jen Walsh & Molly Curran) This is a very busy committee requiring a lot of help the day of the feis. Stage Monitors will need to check competitors in at the stage, start dancers to music (beginners & advanced beginners), and keep judges and runners informed of competitions and conflicts. Christina and the Stage Managers select and assign Stage Monitors and Runners.
Tabulations/Posting: (2018 Chairperson - Jennifer Crossey & Rebecca Evrard) This committee is responsible for the tabulation of scores for beginner through prizewinner levels, for posting placements throughout the day for all solo grade levels as they become available, and for preparing marks cards for electronic distribution to competitors in the solo grade levels after the feis.
Solo Grade Awards: (2018 Chairperson - Tracy Hollister) This committee is responsible for recording award winners and distributing trophies and medals to the competitors on the day of the feis.
Championship Awards: (2018 Chairperson - Denise Bruzek) This committee is responsible for distributing awards and marks to the championship level competitors on the day of the feis and for processing promissory notes for winners of perpetual trophies.
Hospitality: (2018 Chairpersons - Peder & Ellen Cox) This committee is responsible for serving food and beverages to the judges, musicians, and tabulators throughout the day.
Refreshments/Kitchen: (2018 Chairpersons - Agnes Drobot & Kelly Leaning) Help is needed prior to the feis with ordering food and picking up supplies and/or arranging for donations. Most of the help is needed the day of the feis in the kitchen and/or at the cash registers. Help is also needed setting up the kitchen the day before and early on the day of the feis.
General Set-up: (2018 Chairperson - James Kilcoyne) Friday, October 12, 2018 (likely 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.) COME ONE, COME ALL!!! This is where we can really use a lot of strong women and men to help. The stages will need to be put together and the entire gym area set up for the competitions. Tables will need to be set up for vendors, awards, entries, etc. Also, we need help putting up posting boards, signs, etc. Committee chairpersons are expected to be at and direct the set-up of their posts.
General Clean-up: (2018 Chairperson - James Kilcoyne) Saturday, October 13, 2018 (likely 4:00 pm) COME ONE, COME ALL AGAIN!!! We need all of those strong women and men to come back!!!
- Volunteers will be contacted with assigned times approximately one week before the feis.
- Again, all familes are required to have a parent and/or guardian volunteer a total of four (4) hours.
- We will schedule around dancer preparation and participation in the feis.
