They did. It was fun (well, I didn't bowl, but the dance as a whole was fun). :D

At the opening ceremony, we were all getting a little bored and not paying to much attention. suddenly this guy with a trike turns into the isle in front of me. I start to wonder what is going on, and then I am suddenly getting blasted with fire extinguishers! It was scary at first, but it was kind of funny at the same time.

Later, my phone went off during our Dynamic Planet test. That freaked me out so much! I thought we were going to get DQed. Thankfully, the event supervisors let it pass, and we ended up getting 3rd!
THE CAKE IS A LIE!!!

Just saying, that supervisor probably wasn't planning on you telling everyone about this...

But congratulations on your awesome medal! :D

When I was at nats one day I went to the dorms around 11.30. I went to my room and got my stuff ready to take a shower and my friends were all in their rooms screaming and eating ice cream. I went to the showers and 5 minutes in, all the lights just turned off. I got so scared I started screaming thinking that either someone was going to kill me or everyone forgot about me. It turns out that my best friend had turned off all the lights on purpose to scare me. Oh, and did I mention that since I get really cranky when I'm tired ( and I was tired; we had arrived that day from Miami) I started screaming at her for 10 minutes. I was soooo mad, but now I realize that it's really funny. ;)

So last year at Nats in Illinois a squirrel stole my tennis ball and tried to eat it, and then when we got to the quad for egg-o-naut my partner told me he didn't bring his rocket
