Why is Lincolnview HS holding the cheer competition for the VW fair when it is rained out? Whose bright idea was this? The competition should be @ Van Wert HS! L'view is way to small of a facility to hold a competition this large. There was not enough seating!!!! Everybody was complaining about it. Somebody didnt think that idea out! DUMB, DUMB, DUMB !

It's possible Van Wert wasn't available on short notice during a holiday weekend. To open and operate the building you need the custodial staff at the very least. I'd say y'all were lucky to get inside anywhere on Labor Day weekend.

actually Lincolnview was listed in the program as a back-up place incase of rain. But, yeah thats to small of a facility. I think the 2 ladies that are in charge of the competition are from L'view.... but yeah i agree with Karla, it needs moved to Van Wert HS. Im sure Van Wert HS would happily accomodate the competition. Plus its closer to the fair... Lincolnview was way to small & couldnt handle the crowd... Maybe food for thought for next year ?

I don't know who is in charge of the cheerleading competition now, but when it began it was Lincolnview ladies who were in charge.
I actually give them credit for starting the competition and keeping it going, it's a great addition to the fair!!

Ft Jennings got 1st, Crestview 2nd & Lincolnview 3rd in varsity..... Betsy Welker & Caressa Evans (they are sisters) are the 2 women in charge. Yes they are Lincolnview people & yes they take on a huge responsibility putting this cheer competition together, BUT they do need to move the alternate place to Van Wert HS. Lincolnview is WAY TO SMALL of a gymnasium for this kind of event. Im just agreeing with everybody else. Nobody is complaining how the competition is run, were just saying change the alternate place incase of rain..........

yes lincolnview was way 2 small. couldnt find a place 2 park. people had 2 park in the grass. hopefully no more rain-outs cause it does take $$$ away from the fair. use the alternate place as Van Wert HS if need be. enough said..........

Van Wert could not hold the competition because their insurance does not cover the flips and throws that the competition included. It would have been too much of a liability issue
so what

van wert don't rent their facilities out to the public...they only said they would when they wanted your tax dollars to build it, now that its built they really dont want you using it.

there is no throwing in the varsity competition, only in the exhibitions by kim holmans or all-star teams dance/cheer. and if that is true, dont allow throwing..... DAH! and VW HS does allow flipping/tumbling, their rah-rah girls do it all the time ..... and its hard to believe the VW Fair would allow throwing because of the liability issue, our fair is broke enough :(

There is no liability because waivers are signed. If anyone gets hurt the only responsible party is the parent/s of the child. Fairs are where most of these competitions are held, waivers are required for all of them and yes kids get hurt all the time The parents assume the responsibility. There were enough all star teams participating that they got to compete this year, not just do an exhibition.

So why wouldn't VWHS just make them sign the same waiver the fair did to cover the liability issue and allow their to be enough space for their competition?

KHD has had their recital at the almighty PAC why didn't yhty have it there that wonderful place is supposed to be for the betterment of our community?. And as for the waivers they are simply a snow job they are not worth the paper they are on, ask any lawyer.
