Our Weekly Message for April 3, 2002

Greetings to everyone,

We are off this week to the Dance/Drill Team Directors of America National Convention in Ft. Worth, Texas, and hope to see many of you there. If you are in the Midwest, there will be a regional convention in Chicago for DTDA the first weekend in May. Visit the DTDA.org web site for more information on these two conventions.

Here are some thoughts for the day: 

We fought hard. We gave it our best. We did what was right. And, we made a difference." Geraldine Ferraro

Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway." Mary Kay Ash
The more I travel, the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends." 
Shirley MacLain

Tryouts are taking place all during the month of April. If you need to resource some ideas for tryouts, visit our Education Support Page. You can also find over 50 articles on various subject areas for dance/drill team.

Since tryouts are taking place, it is also time to make your summer camp plans. Remember that we have a Visual Notes Video that will allow you to resource over 36 routines throughout the year. You can also find an online Camp Pre-registration form as well as a Private Camp Bid Request form. Camps will fill quickly so make sure to reserve your team today!

I always try to look on the positive side of life and that is what the passage says below. Hope you have a great day, great week, and as always, please keep in touch!

"The Positive Side of Life"

Living on Earth is expensive, 
but it does include a free trip 
around the sun every year. 

How long a minute is 
depends on what side of the 
bathroom door you're on. 

Birthdays are good for you; 
the more you have, 
the longer you live. 

Happiness comes through doors you 
didn't even know you left open. 

Ever notice that the people who are late 
are often much jollier 
than the people who have to wait for them? 

Most of us go to our grave 
with our music still inside of us. 

If Walmart is lowering prices every day, 
how come nothing is free yet? 

You may be only one person in the world, 
but you may also be the world to one person. 

Some mistakes are too much fun 
to only make once. 

Don't cry because it's over; 
smile because it happened. 

We could learn a lot from crayons: 
some are sharp, some are pretty, 
some are dull, some have weird names, 
and all are different colors....but 
they all exist very nicely in the same box. 

A truly happy person is one who 
can enjoy the scenery on a detour. 

Have an awesome day, and 
know that someone 
who thinks you're great 
has thought about you today!.. 
"And that person was me.".....
