Kaamulan Street DancingKAAMULAN 2009 – Organizers of the Kaamulan 2009 Ethnic Street Dancing competition confirmed with Bukidnon Online yesterday that Valencia City indeed also placed second in the said event and tied with the Municipality of San Fernando, Bukidnon.

Organizers said, however, that Valencia City allegedly decided to “forego” with half of the prize. The prize for the second place winner is P100,000.00.

In an interview with DXDB Radyo Bandilyo Bukidnon, Valencia City Councilor Atty. Oliver Owen Garcia said that the City Government of Valencia decided to forego with the money in favor of San Fernando. He emphasized, however, that they wanted a clearer, faster and more efficient way of tabulating the scores next year. He said that the tabulators did not know the division of score percentages, hence, the delay in the announcement of winners.

The Kaamulan 2009 Street Dancing Competition, which was held last Saturday, March 7, 2009, was marred with slight controversies especially since the tabulators took roughly 45 minutes before they could officially announce the winners.

The tabulating team, Bukidnon Online learned, was from sponsoring computer school STI Malaybalay.

Kibitzers alleged that the winners of the competition were different from the announced winners. Event organizers downplayed the allegation, however. (BUKIDNON NEWS)

  • KAAMULAN STREET DANCING RESULTS-unfair,no system,unorganized ,always in a controversy because most of the people assigned are all intelligent but unsystematic. It might be a scam tainted with malice and dirty politics resulted to incredibility.Shame on you.

  • The SOP:if there’s a tie for the second place in a ranking system tabulation,the point system or the average system can be applied in getting the scores.highest average will be declared second place,the lowest average will be the third place.Was there any briefing or agreement of what kind of scoring system the judges and the tabulators will be used in case there’s a tie?mao na na diha.

  • @Bukidnon Performing Artists Guild – sir/madam, is it all right if I cite your comment sa usa nako nga article? I’m working on one man gud unta.

  • @Bukidnon Performing Artists Guild – ang article kay about sa so-called “fiasco” sa street dancing. daghan na man gud ninggawas na mga istorya bahin sa tabulation especially since dugay kaayo ang announcement. naa pa gyuy kontrobersyal nga remark ang chairperson sa mga judges before he did the announcement. wala ba moy plan to file a protest or bisan mo-question man lang kung unsa ba gyud ang nahitabo?

  • Well,dili man gyud tingali kinahanglan ang protesta kung aduna lang unta pagahimoon nga mga klaro ug tinuod nga explanations sa nahitabong DELAY sa giiingon nga PROCLAMATION OF WINNERS(Kaamulan Street Dancing Contest 2009).Kay sa nahibaw-an sa kadaghanan,dili ra man ni nahitabo sa karon.Nahitabo na ni sa una.Ngano mang dili mag public apology ang committee kung tinuod man nga adunay kalapasan apil na ang giingon tang institusyon nga maoy gigamit sa pag tabulate sa giingon nga computerized judging and tabulation system gamit ang STI or kun unsa pang pangGobyerno o Pribadong sistema nga gigamit para sa giingong CONTEST.If somebody accepts the fault,ngano dili naman lang ibutyag para sa kasayuran sa publiko?Mahimong sa kanunay magpabilin ang Dakong ISYU para sa mga taga BUKIDNON kung hangtud sa karong mga panahona magpadayon kining mga sayop or kalapasan, bunga sa pagpasagad sa UBANG mga inila ug unta sinaligang UBANG members sa maong KAAMULAN STREET DANCING 2009 COMMITTEE sa Probinsya sa Bukidnon.
    Daghang Salamat.
