Our Weekly Message for March 27, 2002

Hello everyone!

I hope that you are planning ahead to a glorious time this Easter weekend with family as we are. Make sure to stop and remember the reason for this sacred holiday.

We are joyful for a wonderful contest season and a truly successful National Championship in Denton this past weekend with a capacity crowd. The weather was cool but beautiful and we saw some incredibly talented teams and performances. Click here to view the results.

Here are some thoughts for the day:

"Learn to write your hurts in the sand. Learn to carve your blessings in stone." author unknown

"I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do." Helen Keller

"Loneliness is the most terrible poverty." Mother Teresa

"You have to accept whatever comes, and the only important thing is that you meet it with courage and with the best you have to give." Eleanor Roosevelt

Many thanks to our corporate sponsors and friends that have contributed special awards and prizes this season for our contests:
Biogime International
Curtain Call Costumes
Tote Unlimited
Doughmakers Inc.
Southern Exposure Photography
ATS Tours and Travel

We appreciate their support and hope you will resource them for your team needs.

Next week is the National Convention for Dance/Drill Team Directors of America. We hope to see many of you there. If you are job searching, make sure to resource the DTDA Job Fair site to look for openings and post your listing.

This week we mailed our 2002 Summer Camp brochure. If you have any questions or needs for summer camp, please make sure to contact us or resource the web site for more information.

As we close up contest season, we want to remind everyone of the true qualities of being a winner. Winning is not always what it seems. Hopefully you can share this with others. Have a great week and as always, please keep 
in touch.

Be a Winner

Winners take chances.
Like everyone else, they fear failing,
but they refuse to let fear control them.
Winners don't give up.
When life gets rough, they hang in until
the going gets better.
Winners are flexible.
They realize there is more than one way 
and are willing to try others.
Winners know they are not perfect.
They respect their weaknesses
while making the most of their strengths.
Winners fall, but they don't stay down.
They stubbornly refuse to let a fall
keep them from climbing.

Winners don't blame fate for their failures
nor luck for their successes.
Winners accept responsibility for their lives.
Winners are positive thinkers
who see good in all things.
From the ordinary, they make the extraordinary.
Winners believe in the path they have chosen
even when it's hard,
even when others can't see
where they are going.
Winners are patient.
They know a goal is only as worthy
as the effort that's required to achieve it.
Winners make this world to a better place be.
