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.
