    Last year, OSB was the 2nd competition I had ever been to. I was amazed by the number of people there and the caliber of dancing...it was great. Of course, getting up to be there ready to dance at 7am for pre-bronze after staying up and watching the pro competition wasn't so fun, but I'll get to sleep in a bit this year. :)

    That's what we're doing too! Just sent our cashier's check and forms yesterday. ($8 charge for that check, btw, plus the fun of a trip to the bank.)

    We will spectate amateur latin all day Friday, go to Friday night events. (Although...are you competing pro-am latin, MQ and njdancegirl? Maybe I can split my time between the rooms.)

    I might spend at least part of Saturday in my room grading Senior Seminars (boo!) or hanging with CCP (yay!), and will probably also have to hit the gym, but will also sneak out to watch some am standard. Obviously going to Saturday night events.

    Sunday afternoon is our silver amateur latin, cha-cha/rumba and samba/jive.

    I'll be there from thursday through sunday. We're reviving the ole pro/am (I'm trying to get AM partner to go too) and should be in the regional team match. Anyone else in the dancesport series team match?

    Look forward to seeing you guys again. I think we'll be gone before you dance, though. Do you bring a laptop with you? I can put those Yankee videos on a flash drive and bring it if you like. I attempted to send them by email, but they're just TOO BIG! And will happily be your workout buddy on Saturday if you would enjoy some company. Having a whole day free can be financially dangerous for a lady like me.

    Let's just reduce the expectations now! I'm looking to simply enjoy this experience because I'm not feeling remotely ready to play on the big stage, but I really don't know how long I'll be doing this and don't want to miss the opportunity. Just praying to remaining upright and smiling ;).

    Excellent attitude, MQ...trying to learn that myself. Enjoy the experience - hope to go myself at some point, but for now, I'll be living thru the rest of you!
