Another day draws to an end

The live commentary team has finished for the day - there are a couple of places missing in the results and I apologise for this. If you know the missing places, please let me know on the Message Board and I will update the live commentary.

Tomorrow we have the 13 & 14 Years, along with teams. It will be a long day with a projected finish of 2245 - so teams information will be late!!

Good night all.

Sub Minor 8 Years Girls complete their first round.

Competitor No 1 is not here and has withdrawn. The final group finish and round one is done! Little girls and their familes breathe a sigh of relief that the first round is over! Shoes are being changed and the second round will commence with dancer 35.

Getting through the sub minor girls

We are getting through the sub minor girls. We commenced with number 14 and are now up to 48. There are 63 competitors altogether.

The boys are being asked to return for their second round.

The injured dancer and her co dancers have returned to redance. She appears to be fine and dancing well.

This mod loves the dancers with their happy little faces smiling so brightly!
Competitor 37 has withdrawn. She is not the injured dancer. I'm still waiting news on her to keep you updated.

The musicians are always interesting! The piano accordion player keeps resting his head on the accordion! One wonders if he is going to fall asleep! But the wonderful musicians keep soldiering on!

Injured dancer

One of the little girls has falled and appears to have hurt herself. She has been helped from the stage. I'll keep you informed of her. See! No sooner do I advise how safe the stage has been we have not one but two falls!

Hello to everyone out there!

Hi to all our local, interstate and overseas blog visitors! I know there are many interstate and overseas people watching the blog ... hello Rachel!

The weather in Geelong has improved over the last few days. When we first arrived it was freezing and wet but has steadily improved becoming warmer every day.

There has been lots of new dresses. Styles of all types from three panels to centre wraps to rah rahs. Bright colours pinks, oranges and greens, as always plenty of sparkles.

Moving along ...

The first girls have completed their dance. Generally the floor has been excellent. This mod has seen very little slips or falls but one of the dancers did have a fall right at the very end of her dance. I don't think she will need to redance as it was just the last few bars. She got up and appears to be uninjured.

There is a nice crowd clapping and cheering on the kids.

No 20 has withdrawn.

Sub Minor Boys 1st round complete. Sub Minor Girls begin.

The boys have finished their first round. The girls are dancing for the Noonan School Perpetual Trophy donated by Christine Portbury, Karen Howitt and Gabrielle Hall and Anna Rabusin.

And the girls commence with numbers 14, 15 and 16.

The temperature inside the main hall is nice. The sets hall is very warm so its nice to come and sit down in here. While the hall is full there are still some seats.

Sub Minor 8 Years Boys

Sub Minor 8 Years Boys are about to begin! The crowd is growing and the commentator has just asked everyone to take their seats and be quiet.

Adj are Patrick O'Donnell, Deirdre Penk-O'Donnell and Kevin McCormack. Musicians are Paul O'Donnell and Anthony Davis.

6 Competitors begin Nos 1, 2 and 3.

Progress report

The Minor 10 Year recalls have finished - as you may recall, there were some suggestions yesterday that the recall floor lacked sound. I am led to believe that the floor was rebuilt overnight, but comments from dancers and spectators indicate that the floor is not as load as it should be.

The Intermediate 13 Years are now dancing their second dance in the main hall.

More feis faces...

The 10 Years recall are up to #20, they started at #51. The Intermediate 13 Years Girls are almost finished their first dance.

An update has just come in from Darwin stating that they have chocolate crackles and honey joys up there - well thanks for that - send them down here now!!!
