2010 Perpetual Trophy Holders...

Attention 2010 Oireachtas champions. Please contact Patricia Finnegan ( or 905-864-9239), as soon as possible, if you have any concerns regarding the condition of your 2010 perpetual trophy. 

All trophies should be returned to the Oireachtas Headquarters (aka the Costume Consignment Room) at The Westin on Thursday, November 10. 

If you will not be arriving on that date, please make appropriate arrangements to have the trophy returned on the Thursday evening by someone you know.

Every year we are in a mad panic to find such trophies to hand out on Friday night and/or some are returned dirty/unpolished.  We don't have volunteers to clean trophies, so kindly ensure everything is brought back in a presentable manner (and by Friday noon at the absolute latest).

Thank you.
2011 ECRO Costume Consignment Room Info

[New Pricing Scheme - see below for details.]

In response to feedback from families like you, we have made a few minor changes to the consignment room policies for 2011, to make it easier for you to sell or buy a dress!

The new (lowered) fee will be $20 for the whole weekend; a second dress from the same family will be $15 and each additional dress shall be a further $10 per dress provided all dresses are from the same family. 
A reduced rate of $15 shall be available if you register your dress for sale after Saturday awards!  Many Sunday-only dancers were looking last year (especially older dancers) but dresses were taken home before Sunday.  Try to arrange to leave your dress until Sunday at 1pm and have someone collect it for you.

Hours will be: Thursday (for intake only - from 5-8pm, Friday from 10-4pm, Saturday from 10-4pm (and for another two hours after Saturday's award ceremony), plus Sunday from 9:30-1pm
All dresses must be picked up by 1pm Sunday or they will be turned over to the hotel's lost and found for you to collect at your own expense.
Have as much information about the dress ready to add to the registration form such as measurements, suitable age category, age of the dress, dressmaker etc.

The consignment room is located in the same room as last year (beside the escalators).  The room will also operate as "Oireachtas Headquarters" come and see us if you have any questions about the weekend's events.  
We'll try our best to help!
