How was Nationals?

Postby ILoveEgretsClub » Mon May 23, 2011 12:54 am

After looking at the "Did you medal at Nationals?" thread from 2009, I thought this was necessary.

How was Nationals? Did you medal? How did your team do? Better or worse than expected?

Better than I personally expected. I didn't think we'd make top 10 this year. :]

We did pretty good. We finished 26th overall, and medaled once(2nd place).

It was really fun! I now understand what it takes to be competitive at the national level, and my team got 14th in our fist year at nationals. Next season is going to be intense.

Haha, opening ceremonies... eventually we started playing 4-way rock, paper, scissors. But the demonstrations actually worked and the band was good! Any reason as to why it went half an hour or so overtime, though?

And the two guys at the end kept talking... and talking... and talking. I thought the rapture had come and that was part of it. I feel like, if they had made it a bit more concise, the awards wouldn't have gone that much over.
