Our Weekly Letter for March 28, 2001

Dear Friends,

This is our count down to the National Competition this weekend in Denton, Texas. Make sure to peek at the schedule. Wish you were there! Watch for National Champions to be posted later next week.

Here is a thought for today:
"Ignorance is not bliss. Ignorance is poverty. Ignorance is devastation. Ignorance is tragedy. And, ignorance is illness. It all stems from ignorance." Jim Rohn

Many of you are looking for resources on tryouts, motivation, starting a new team, rewriting a constitution and more. Visit the Educational Support Page for over 50 articles on these and other dance/drill team subjects.

We are looking forward to the Dance/Drill Team Directors of America convention that will be held in Fort Worth next week. Make sure to visit their web site for more information about the event. We will be doing the All Star choreography featuring Holly Williams Lyons and Holly Chappell as choreographers. I will be presenting the Job Fair workshop as well as Judges Certification workshop as well. Hope to see 
you there! 

My brother sent me the list below of Great Wisdom......how true they are!!

Have a wonderful and blessed week and, as always, please keep in touch.
