Welcome to the 2012 TIDA NZ National Championships

ChaosCentral has arrived in windy Auckland - surprising really as the windy title is usually reserved for Wellington :)  This is the 10th Anniversary of the TIDA Nationals and there are celebrations all around!

A beautiful day has dawned at Westlake Boys' High School on Auckland's north shore.  Takapuna has put on its best behaviour and is ready for the rush of frocks and wigs that is Irish Dancing.  The venue is the very large auditorium of the high school, plenty of seating, heated and very comfortable.  ChaosCentral has set up a command centre somewhat reminiscent of a shambles, and from this we will bring you LiveCommentary and LiveCam.

Now, for some important details...

The adjudicators are:

  • Danny Doherty ADCRG (UK)
  • Lisa Petri ADCRG (US)
  • Terry Gillan ADCRG (US)
And the musician is Anthony Davis (UK).

LiveCam is now online, but the audio is muted until the competition starts, so people milling around and chatting have a little privacy :)
