WLRCA Drill
Competition 2012

Stirrin' Dust participated
in the WLRCA drill
competition 7/13-15 at
the Tacoma Unit.  We
were in the Novice
division, since this was
our first year competing.  
There were 3 Novice
teams.  We got high
point overall for the
Novice division, 1st
place in parade drill, 2nd
place in freestyle, and
1st in short program.  
The quad (Bonnie,
Kaylen (as Freddie),
Kelsie (as Jason), and
Scott (as a clown)) got
9th place (Novice doesn't
apply to quads).  
Pictures are on the
Photos page.  Videos
