We are now just waiting for results and presentations.

14 Years Girls sets are finished, three 14 Years Boys sets to go!

Its getting cold in here :(

There are not enough people in the hall to generate some heat, and even the adjudicator is now fashionably attired in a jumper, scarf and coat over the top of the lot.  Makes quite a change from warm QLD!

14 Years Premiership set dances now underway

This is the final section of the day and there are approximately 14 dancers in the Boys & Girls sections.

Only five more sets to go in the 13 Years!

14 Years Girls hard shoe will be next, followed by the 14 Years Boys.

Premiership sections now on stage

They will be dancing the 13 & 14 Years Boys & Girls interleaved - that means that I won't be announcing each section each time, otherwise we will all become confused - or in the case of your correspondent, more confused.

13 & 14 Years Premierships have now started

In the 13 Years Premiership, 17 dancers are competing for a trophy.

In the 14 Years Girls Premiership, 11 dancers are competing for the A Carolan Perpetual Trophy.

In the 14 Years Boys Premiership, three dancers are competing for the Edward Wade Memorial Trophy, donated by the Baar Family.

11 Years Girls sets are almost finished

Only three more dancers to go, then the four 11 & 12 Years Boys.

11 Years Girls are now doing their set dances

Those of you watching and listening to LiveCam will notice that the hall is strangely quiet - possibly as there are fewer people here than yesterday - and the sense of anticipation for the presentations to come?

11 & 12 Years Boys have been called to marshalling for their set dances.

11 & 12 Years girls now dancing their soft shoe round

The 11 Years Girls have been called to marshalling for their set dances.

In the hall today, there are fewer people compared to yesterday; there is not so much "atmosphere" although there is good support and applause for each of the dancers.  Outside, it is cool but sunny and some families are taking the opportunity to enjoy the warmth while it is there.

11 Years in marshalling

Waiting for their soft shoe round....they are on stage now.

Welcome to Sunday at the Fisher's Ghost Feis!!

Another cool morning in Sydney, but today the skies are clear and we are starting at the very civilised time of 10:00.  Todays dancing program is as follows:

10:00-13:00 11 & 12 Years
14:00-16:30 13 & 14 Years

The adjudicator is Cheryl Young ADCRG from QLD and we hope she is enjoying the change of weather - somewhat cooler!

In the interim, your correspondent is going to get a cup of tea and to survey the wonderful range of breakfast offerings, made fresh in the canteen.

10 dancers in the section.

Feis update

A mathematically gifted correspondent has suggested that we all get into comfy clothes, rug up and settle in with a warm drink; at the current rate of progress, tonight's dancing - and therefore presentations - will finish around 2300, or 11PM in the old currency....

Feis update

The 15 Years and over sections are dancing their warm-up dances and, because there are several age groups grouped prior to the final presentations, the hall is quite full.

Everywhere that one looks, people are enjoying home-baked cakes and other delicacies - and not a beer to be seen :)

LiveCam doesn't have a great deal to show as few dancers are in the marshalling area, they just go straight to the back of the stage.

The 15 Years premiership dancers have just been called to marshalling for their hard shoe dance.

For the remainder of the day...

There are 11 dancers competing in the 17 Years, 7 dancers competing in the 18 Years and 8 dancers competing in the 19 & Over section.

The 9s and 10s are on stage.

The 15 Years have commenced dancing

The first two dancers have taken the stage - and danced - and that's the end of the section.  That was quick.

9 & 10 Years presentations delayed!!

The feis is approximately 40 minutes late, so the 15 Years will start now, presentations will be made once they are available.

In the 15 Years section, 20 dancers are competing for the Kathleen Wade Memorial Trophy, donated by the Baar family.

Last 10 Years dancer is now on stage

The set dances are progressing

Around another 10 in the 9 Years, followed by 15 in the 10 Years - this means we are running around 45 minutes late.

9 Years Set Dances are now underway

And, for those watching the LiveCam, the sun is now streaming in across the adjudicator's table, so a shield has been erected so that she may see the stage without being blinded.  The late afternoon light, a feature of St Gregory's Hall, also produces some interesting light patterns across the marshalling area, also visible on LiveCam.

10 years Premiership now dancing their soft shoe round

We are running on time it seems, with presentations due at 15:30.

Gourmet food update

Earlier this morning I was given some lovingly hand-crafted "special" chocolate crackles - and they were absolutely divine!  As some of the LiveCommentary photos show, they other home-made baked goods are being devoured by young and old alike - quite a few old in fact - and are one of the highlights of this feis!

The 10 Years are coming to an end of their hard shoe round and the 9 Years are now in marshalling for their soft shoe round.

6 Years Premiership now on stage doing their hard shoe round

The 6 Years & under are continuing their dances....

6 Years & under are now on stage

They are so small that the music has been turned down for some so that they can be heard!

There is a very appreciative audience clapping for each of the competitors and for many, this is their first feis.  Lots of beautiful and simple dresses on stage and lots of beaming faces too - and in the crowd.

Gourmet food update:
First chocolate crackle of the day has been delivered and I am savouring its mystic beauty and aroma - and the canteen has a fabulous range of cakes, pies and all sorts of home-made goodies.  In this case, home-made really is - Margie Brennan and other Walton parents have been up all night baking a wide range of cakes, cupcakes, slices and all things wonderful.

Feis Update
Damien Champion, one of the stalwarts of the Campbelltown Irish Association, who are the organisers of this feis, has become an unexpected casualty due to an ID-related accident.  His is sporting a natty white cast on his right arm, the result of having a roll of tarquett/tarkett/dancing-flooring dropping on his arm on Wednesday.  We wish him well in gaining a speedy recovery and look forward with great interest to his eating skills with chopsticks tonight!
