We just finished our
2004 National/International Competition and had
over 130 teams including two teams from Tokyo,
Japan. The Japanese teams were most well received
and absolutely dazzled everyone with their
performances. Later this week you can view the
results online on our ADTS Contest Page. We
continue to visit with Jean Richards, our great
friend from Australia and director of the
Australia Dance/Drill Team. They will be hosting
the 2005 International Competition in South
Australia. If you are interested in taking your
team or solos, you can contact her at

it with a special friend this week.
