So, I just spent the last 4 days in Dayton, OH at World Championships...and it was wonderful. I got to see all of these amazing colorguards, and my guard competed as well! Not only did we perform in prelims, but we made it to FINALS! This was such a great accomplishment for us, as we placed 4th last year in our class and were consequently bumped up to our current class. The "Open class" where we were moved to is much more competitive and demanding, and our highest aspiration was to merely hold our own, and possibly make finals. My own personal goal was to make finals and not be in 15th place, the last ones in. Well, we accomplished ALL of these goals! We went into finals tied for 12th place! It ended with us in 13th, but who even cares! We had a great run of the show, and I can really find no reason to be upset about our placement. The only thing that kinda bummed me out was the fact that they changed the schedule up this year and had Independent guards go first in finals, from 10am-12pm, and the Scholastic guards go second from 12pm-2pm. There are less people there to watch your show in the morning, and I LOVE performing to a big crowd. But, oh well...there were still hundreds there. All in all...great week. UTTERLY EXHAUSTING, but great. I got 4 hours of sleep on Friday night and 3 hours on Saturday night...even though I slept over 12 hours last night, I still feel the need to catch right now I am going to go take a nap. :-)
