Gourmet food update

They have chocolate crackles!!!!!

And home made (really, not commercial) florentines, cupcakes (super and gluten free), scones, all sorts of interesting slices and tea and coffee.

And the RSL, faced with a room full of people wanting cappuccinos, won't open the bistro doing the cappuccinos until 1145 - certainly in business to make money - or NOT :)

In feis related news, the 9 & 10 Years dancers are now finishing their set dances.

The soft shoe rounds are now dancing

The 20 Years & Over and the 9 Years have done their hard shoe rounds and are now doing their soft shoe rounds.  We will be into the set dances in no time :)

There are some wonderful trophies with many years history, it is sad that there are so few competitors her to dance for them....

Both ends of the dancing spectrum...

    What a glorious Sydney day!!

    Clearly the weather hasn't received the memo about it still being winter, today's expected temperature is around 27C and even interstate visitors from QLD are impressed :)

    We are at the Concord RSL Club, a venue that has plenty of food, parking and a very large dance floor.  We are all set-up and ready to go, so stay tuned.  There is no LiveCam today for operational reasons but LiveCommentary will be happy to keep you up-to-date.

    Our adjudicator is Mary McElroy ADCRG (Dublin) and music is by iPod.

    This year, the feis is being run by the Henderson boys....all of them.  We should have a great weekend's dancing :)
