the Houston one (the *largest in THE WORLD*) begins this weekend with the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest. (YES! We got coveted invite-only tent tickets, again, this year! EXCITED!!! It's *THE* Houstonian event of the year!)
But back to our local... Our big rodeo parade was this last Saturday. One of my first initiatives as the new head of our cheer program was to have our girls march in the parade. WHY has our league never done this before?!?!?! It's *FREE* to register & participate, it's perfect timing (at the beginning of our own registration period) to get our name out there, it keeps squads engaged & excited in the offseason, it shows we support our local community, and did I mention, IT'S FREE?!?! No brainer. I will say, the logistics were a lot more work than I expected, but certainly not prohibitively so. We didn't have any issues, and next year will be even easier, now that we know exactly how everything works. The skies looked at little sketchy, but for the few girls who braved the threat of a sprinkle, we enjoyed a perfect 70°F march. :-) [& the last event in our old uniforms! ;-)]
Spirit during line-up!
