Our schools Jr.Forms team placed as finalists

and one of our Jr. BB'S in the 12-13 Y/O division took the Gold(32 competitors in the division one of which is the other team mate on the forms team). They did us proud.

Congrats! We had a team go down as well this year. I believe they came back with two silvers and a bronze. 7000 competitors I hear this year! I am hoping to go again next year. I went back in 2004 and had a blast.

I don't think that there was 7000. They typically get about 2500, they said there was a 16% increase from last year but it was in Ft. Lauderdale this year versus Madison, WI last year. Easy to see why there was such a large increase, but I don't think it was 7000.

Shrug, that was the number I was told, and they were just passing on the number they were told when they weighed in. I know there was around 2500 when I was down there 5 years ago, which was also in Ft. Lauderdale and they said there were considerably more people there this year.

It was a lot of competitors this year. Mind you it was my 1st year. I went with my boyfriend's family. Him and his mom are officials. I got to go with them even to the official's party on a yacht. I was shocked. Also, we had 2 people who made it to team trials. Woohoo!
