Wrap up of 2015 Events before Heading toward our 91st Annual Eisteddfod.

2015 Annual General Meeting

The association’s Annual General Meeting was held on the 13th of October at which the following appointments were made. Pres & Dance co-ord Fay Thomas; V.Pres Jan King; Secretary Phill Spark; Treasurer & Music Co-ord David Hague; Trophy Co-ord Ray Butler, committee Vashti Lamaro, Kelsi Nelson, Margo Hague. In the Annual report, Fay Thomas highlighted the special events which were held in the Capital Venues for the first time this year. The School Choirs were held in the new Ulumbarra Theatre; The Leila Watson Music Championship was held in the Bendigo bank Theatre and the Dance Stage Spectacular, Cabaret Entertainer, Contemposrary Duo and Song & Tap troupe- were staged in the Capital Theatre. These Events were considered to be successful and we intend to continue these into the future.

We were pleased to have the support of our fabulous sponsors who again assisted us financially to present the Eisteddfod and we were pleased to be able to acknowledge them in our Programmes.

We were thrilled to welcome some new Volunteers to join with our “Old Stagers” this year. We realise that we need to attract more Volunteers, especially to help us present the Dance Competition which has grown to take in the whole School Holidays with 3 sessions each day often finishing around 10pm. We realise that the school holidays are still workdays for many of our supporters but if anyone could assist us on the weekend or evenings that would be great. Or maybe you might know someone who would be willing to give us a few hours of their precious time to ensure we don’t continue to overwork the present crew.

We appreciate the hard work put in by local music and dance teachers who not only do an excellent job developing the talent of our young people but also encourage then to enter the Eisteddfod and then support them with their on Stage Performances. We know that the encouragement and organization the Teachers give to Students is what makes our Eisteddfod the success it is and we trust will continue.

The Competitors are in the end what an Eisteddfod is all about. Competitors have again impressed us throughout the 90th Annual Eisteddfod. Our professional Adjudicators often remark upon the high standard of performances. We would like to also recognise the high level of personal presentation and behavior that our young competitors display. Whether performing in a school group such as Choirs, Bands, and Dance Troop or as individuals we are always extremely pleased with the way they conduct themselves and the support they show to other competitors. Parents, Teachers and Schools can be justly proud of them all. They certainly contradict the poor reputation often directed at the youth of today!
