    Put a few (not so great ones) in my photo album that a friend of mine sent me. Hoping comp photog got some that are better, though if I recall correctly it takes him a while to post.

    Heh...just looked at the picture again. Going to have to give the boy a little grief about the lack of tan on his hand!

    It is indeed. I like Pavel, and have admired his dancing for several years. I found that he ran out of steam at MAC. Had a good start, but by the final he was no longer dancing with the skill one expects from him.

    those are all Facebook video links right? I don't think any other sites have MAC champ std video or photos. We have to thank Alex Salcianu for recording all rounds of champ and spend his precious time to upload to both facebook and after some people's complaint about audio/video sync, he spent time to upload to youtube too...

    Yes, BIG THANKS to Alex! Thank you so much for taking your time to film the rounds. And such a great job on filming, too!

    Thanks very much for ccp's beautiful shots! Greatly appreciated!

    Oh, you are most welcome! And they are finally all up as of tonight. (Still updating the names, though; I'll hopefully get that finished by tomorrow.)

    Beautiful as always! I'd PMed you to ask if you could shoot a few shots of us doing Senior Latin - guess you didn't have a chance.
  15. ChaChaMama

    ChaChaMama Well-Known Member

    Yes, I am so sorry to have missed your event! (And not just because then we could have taken photos. I saw you dance at Nationals in Baltimore and you are awesome!)

    Had an unfortunate thing happen in the afternoon. My best friend (whom I have known since I was 3) came and watched us compete. She then started feeling very unwell in the early afternoon. So I took her back to our room and we wound up spending a lot more time there than I thought we would. We arrived just as they were doing awards for Adult Championship Rhythm.

    Hope to catch you this year at Nationals, if not sooner.

    Sorry to hear of all the various health issues you've had to deal with. Let's hope everything clears up before Nationals so we can enjoy meeting each other (including CCP).

    I know--it's been crazy! First CCP's never-ending cough, then my back injury, then my best friend. What the heck? I'm hoping that "Bad things happen in threes" holds true and that we are DONE!

    Is CCP fully recovered now?
  19. sambagirl

    sambagirl Member

    Yes, I certainly hope all the recent health issues at least are resolved!
  20. ChaChaMama

    ChaChaMama Well-Known Member

    Yes, thanks for asking. He still does a little bit of coughing, but he doesn't feel terrible like he did for about a month and a half.
