Our Weekly Message for May 22, 2002
Greetings special friends,
Time is passing quickly and many of you are looking into your last week of
school for this year. Many camps are filling quickly and two are already
closed because of capacity. We have booked over 75 Private Camps to date and
some weeks are also closed because we are at capacity. We video taped our
2002 Feature and Officer Routines this past weekend at our Staff Training and
the routines are fantastic!! Remember that you can preview the routines and
pre-select the routines that you want your team to learn both at team camps
and Private Camps as well. Please use the online forms to pre-register for camps
or to receive a bid on a Private Camp. If you have any questions, please do
not hesitate to contact me.
Here are some thoughts for the day:
"You don't get to chose how you are going to die, or when.
You can onlhy decide how you are going to live. Now!" Joan Baez
"You grow up the day you have your first real laugh -- at yourself."
"When people say: She's got everything. I have only one answer:
I haven't had tomorrow." Elizabeth Taylor
