FSC #121: Brno, Czech Republic

kzzaGtQ.jpg


Good evening and Welcome! To this very special edition of the Forum Song Contest. Tonight we gather in beautiful Brno to celebrate 10 years of FSC. Beginning in March of 2009, the Forum Song Test has been help monthly with 59 different juries submitting their entries at one time or another. Throughout it all, we've celebrated music from around the world. Together we've travelled from megacities like London and Paris to tiny hamlets like the Pitcarin Islands. Thank you to everyone, past and present, for making the FSC community so great! xheart



We gather here tonight, in the stunning city of Brno in the Czech Republic, as Katie Kei brought home the victory with her song Burn it down Click on the photo above to listen to it!

Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic and the largest city in the historical Moravian region. Founded around the year 1000, the city acted as one of historical capitals of the region, and today is home to many institutions related to Moravian history and culture. At the same time, Brno represents the administrative center of the contemporary South Moravian Region, and is the headquarters of the republic's judicial system. With a population around 380,000, Brno is located in a beautiful natural environment between South Moravian vineyards and the Moravian Karst, and is an easy drive to the nearby Austrian border. The city center is full of historical buildings, old churches, theaters, fountains, sculptures, clubs, and restaurants. It is very compact, so one can just walk around most of the places of interest.
There are several legends connected with the City of Brno; one of the best known is the Legend of the Brno Dragon. It is said that there was a terrible creature terrorizing the citizens of Brno. The people had never seen such a beast before, so they called it a dragon. They trembled in fear of the dragon until a brave man decided to kill the monster by tricking it into eating a carcass filled with lime. In reality the dragon was a crocodile, the preserved body of which is now displayed at the entrance of the Old Town Hall. Crocodile and dragon motifs are common in Brno.

Brno is home to many famous festivals, including the famous Ignis Brunensis one of the world's largest fireworks festivals. The biggest festival of its kind in Central Europe, the Ignis Brunensis attracts thousands of visitors every day. Brno is also home to the Cinema Mundi which shows Czech films that compete for the Czech nomination to the Best Foreign Language film at the Academy Awards. Brno is also home to the UNESCO heritage site Villa Tugendhat. This stunning architectural wonder has today become an icon of modernism. Originally built by a Jewish family in 1929, the villa has a long history. It was possessed by the Gestapo during World War Two and served as stables for the Soviet Union following the conclusion of the War. In August of 1992, Václav Klaus and Vladimír Mečiar, the political leaders of Czechoslovakia, met there to sign the document that divided the country into the Czech Republic and Slovak Republic. It was designated a UNESCO world heritage site in 2001.

The biggest multi-purpose hall in Brno, opened in 1982. The first event held at the Náplavka Hall, as it was originally called, was a bowling world cup. Nowadays, it hosts various concerts, sports and cultural events, workshops, and more. Mainly, however, it is where the local ice hockey team Kometa regularly plays. The stadium seats around 7,700 fans and is almost always sold out. The hall is very conveniently located only a 10-minute walk from the main train and bus stations.
The HC Kometa Brno remains one of the most successful Czech hockey clubs. They've won three European cup titles, and 13 Czech League championship titles. They have also won the prestigious Spengler Cup in 1955, one of the largest international ice hockey tournaments.

I didn't even realize covers were allowed this month. Not sure it would've changed my choice but that could have been an interesting choice to make.

Re: FSC #121 March 2019 [Ten Years of FSC]: The Show! [Brno, Czech Republic] Voting DDL 28/03 23:59 CET

IMPORTANT:

:il: Israel - Violation of FSC Voting Rules


Case: the Israeli jury yesterday, 12th March posted by mistake the official Israeli FSC March votes in the public FSC Forum. They were available for everyone to see for over 3 hours before they were spotted and removed by the FSC Mods. This is in direct violation of the FSC Voting Rules, Section Voting, pt 3a which says that votes are confidential and No votes (personal or jury) must be revealed on a public board (f.ex. FSC Forum) or otherwise before a FSC-edition is completed. Failure to comply with this may end with the votes being disqualified/not counted.

The FSC Mod team has considered the case as to appropriate penalty or sanction. This rule is meant as a deterrent, but also to be enforced whenever necessary. It is a serious matter since votes seen by others outside the jury could influence their own voting and make for unfair results.

The default position (dq votes/votes not counted) is the strictest response but the FSC Mod team can consider alternatives (a milder sanction/penalty) if circumstances warrant it or the FSC Mod team believe it sufficient. In this case there are circumstances which have made us consider an alternative penalty/sanction, we have also spoken to the Israeli HOJ and he admits his mistake and has apologized for it.


Conclusion: the Israeli jury has been given a stern Warning to be careful in the future where votes (confidential) are posted before all jury-votes have been collected at the end of the month.

Israel also receive 1 Warning point for violation of the FSC Voting Rules.


However, the Israeli jury-votes for FSC March will be counted as normal (not disqualified).
Israel will also keep its points and final ranking in FSC March.

NB! The Israeli entry for March is not affected by this matter, it is part of the March-edition as before.


We trust that those of you who may have seen these Israeli jury votes will play fairly and not let them influence your own votes. Mutual trust is important in a contest such as ours so that everything is done fairly and squarely so we get the fairest and most correct results possible. This is important in respect for all our members and juries. This btw also goes with regards to the Israeli March-entry which should not be penalized by any jury for this mistake but be judged the same as all other March-entries.

No further discussion will be allowed on this topic, Moderation will be used if necessary. The matter is ended and we ask all juries to remember confidentiality and be careful of where and when they post their votes and/or entries in accordance with the FSC Rules.

Thank you.


On behalf of the FSC Mod team,


Regards,

Malagant
