ACC Results

(I may post more later today.)

The Tournament of Bands Atlantic Coast Championships. The bands came from Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and New York. The list was pared down from 400 through regional competitions over the past two and a half months. The top 25 from each size Group perform, the bands ranked 26 thru 30 compete in the "Invitational".

This is the first year that our band made it to the "real" ACCs - usually we're in the Invitational and do very well there. The bands are grouped by band size, not school size. This is the first time we were ever in Group Three, and we made that size by two kids. Next year we'll be back down to the Group Two size.

Anyway, out of the 25 bands, we placed 20th. They got home at 3 am this morning. The local paper has a big article about it, and out of the five photos they have of the event, two are of our band, and Goa'uld and Bookworm are in one shot - which is funny, since they're near each other only once during the show.

Another band member came home with us last night, and the three of them watched the DVD that we bought - it's funny how they pointed out the mistakes and moaned and groaned. But I think that they did great. It's a great experience and these freshmen will do better next year. They're already talking about how they'll whip the newbies into shape next fall!!

Well, that's something to be proud of, considering that a lot of the competition comes from much bigger schools and, presumably, no "accidents" were arranged for the other team. Next year, maybe, we don't play so nice.

That's not true...there's another part where we're actually right next to each other. Plus, the Tok'ra doesn't even think that's here in the picture...

Good job. That's a good achievement. And next year will be better again.

That's great! It's neat that the girls are in the newspaper together. Congrats!

Congratulations. I thought that Book Worm was directly in front of Goa'uld.

Anyway, it's wonderful!

J.D., These girls have been in the paper together MANY times. Beginning when they were babes. Twins gather attention.

Goa'uld and Bookworm congratulations on the earned invitation to compete and on your experience. Treasure the memories.

And Dddragon, you too for being such a proud trooper.
