40th. Event in 2024. Entries Open on 6th. May.

We held our AGM and “Ordinary” Meeting on 26th. March.  Entries open on Monday, 6th. May and will close on Monday, 27th. May (to give people the extra weekend to catch up with their dancing schools and remind one another to enter.

In recent years “Creative Victoria” has assisted us with a grant toward the cost of Adjudication.  The provision for grants is up for renewal this year and we don’t like what we’re hearing about the State Budget coming in May.  We’ve made a slight increase in some of our entry fees to help make up for what we think is needed to compensate for the anticipated loss, but we will be digging into our reserves and not passing on the full cost to entrants.  We hope you appreciate this and understand.

Adjudicators are still to be confirmed and we’ll let you know.

40th. Event Special Features – Pics and an ‘Alumni’ Section:   If you or your children have ever been part of “Casey Comps”, or Dandenong Eisteddfod of Dance, please consider sending us some photos (with names, etc.) we can use in feature pages within our program, or as a foyer display.  We are also proposing a section for those who may have performed with us previously and would like to get back up on stage again to perform, even if it’s not dancing.  Maybe a straight song?  Not sure of the prize as yet.  Let us (Sheila or Garry) know directly regarding this special section as we will not put it into the ‘Stardom’ schedule with other sections.  Past winners/competitors may also wish to help by presenting some of our perpetuals.  Please consider this favourably and get back to us.

Contact Garry on 0433 933 679 if you wish to express an interest in helping.

2024 – Dates and a couple of things from our Plenary Meeting

Dates for 2024   The dates for next year in the front of the program were incorrect.  Our 40th. Anniversary event in 2024 commences with a Troupes Weekend on 12/13 October, then we continue with solos, duos/trios on 19/20, 26/27 October and 2/3 November.

From our Plenary Meeting   We had another successful year with our bank balance only slipping back about $1,000.00 from last year to this year.  Other things discussed/decided:

  • Another volunteer co-ordinator is required due to our current co-ordinator moving on to other things.  We sincerely thank Madeleine Longmuir for all her work in this regard in recent years.  It’s not an easy job accommodating those who are trying to find places on our roster. We really NEED volunteers or we cannot operate – but we don’t need them all at the same session.
  • In 2024 there will be ONE due date for music.  Garry setting different dates for each weekend (thinking this would help entrants) only added to his workload.  Garry will not be contacting those not uploading music.  It will be assumed the entrant is not presenting.  Those expecting to use “back-up” arrangements at the venue due to their own lack of organisation will be in danger of disqualification.
  • We are happy to take recommendations (with Resumes) for 2024 Adjudicators.
  • We are looking to asking for (paid) helpers from the College to assist with set-up and pack-up each weekend.  This has always been left to too few – or one (Garry).  Those linked with “Casey Comps” may wish to access this payment also, but it won’t count as a rostered position.
  • We will (slightly) extend the time for entries to include the following Monday and not close on a Friday.  This may allow those attending lessons on Saturdays to remind one another to get entries in.
  • Breast Cancer Network:   The collection tin raised $158.45.  As in the recent past, Committee agreed to continue adding $2,000.00 to this amount.  $2,158.45 will be forwarded to the BCN.
