Feis Recap 2014

Thank you everyone who attended & competed at the NE Autumn Feis 2014! It was a great day. We had a great time and hope you enjoyed the day. The weather cooperated for the most part and it was fun having awards outdoors. The gym did get very humid and a little behind schedule. We appreciate everyone's patience and will work harder for next year. We are always open to feedback so if there were things you felt could have gone better, please send us an email at neautumfeis@gmail.com
We feel everything went pretty well and ready to plan for the 2015 feis!

All of the results are posted online (even Beg - PW grades) at www.quickfeis.com The results actually went online continuously during the day - a fun perk of Quickfeis!
