September 2007 -- I've completely changed the way the tally works.  Rather than continue to break everything down by year, it's all one tally, which will be much easier to maintain and easier to read as well! 

June 2010 -- After adding in the latest knowns and unknowns, I realized that things were not adding up -- this column didn't match up if this row total was right and so on -- and so, despite the fact that I am beat (it's the night -- well, morning, really, in about an hour I will have been up for 24 straight hours in fact! -- of the Indy Feis day) I simply could not bring myself to act like a normal person, just chill the hell out and let it go till tomorrow; I sat here and dug out all of her Feis records from day one thru now and have completely fixed the tally.  This is complete thru June 12, 2010. 

Here's some pointless trivia for you --

As the 2010 season began, Missy could say that 54% of the time, she placed in the top six dancers overall.    40% of the time, she placed overall in the top five dancers.  14% of the time she placed in the top three.

 

How things have changed, midway thru the 2010 season ...  58% of the time, top six dancers overall.  43% of the time, top five overall.  16% of the time, she places in the top three.  Missy wanted to know how many times she placed in the top four (four being her favorite number) ... that answer is more than a quarter -- 28%  -- of the time. 

Here's a link to some other random things and/or things I figured out for one reason or another.

* = "Unknown" in everything but the treble reel should stop changing now, as dancers at open, preliminary and championship levels are given their full marks for each Feis (prelim & champ on that day, in fact!).  From here on out, we should always know how she did other than sometimes in the treble reel.
