It really has been five years.

18 Jun

Island Fantasy Ball 2009 was technically our first competition, but River City Ball in Portland Oregon was the first time we packed up  and ventured out on our own to attend a competition. We had a couple of good reasons for going there, not the least of which was that I could wear my gown without Bill having to buy a tail suit.  We weren’t sure how well this competition thing would go and didn’t want to invest in the suit if he wasn’t going to wear it.  Ha!  If only we had known…  Another reason was that we thought it would be useful to practice doing small comps out of town and get a bit of experience – preferably where nobody knew us.  Well, that lasted about 5 minutes, as we were grabbed by some lovely people who almost instantly became great friends!  Anyway, River City is now firmly on our annual competition agenda and it continues to be as fun and friendly as it was that first year.  Five years and 7 gowns later.  Whew!

Our annual photo in the hallway:


Thanks to Joe, who, in addition to helping organize and run this event, took photos for us while T and C ran to change for Latin, found us the location for the next amazing photo and danced up a storm himself!


This will be the venue for the Northwest Dancesport Championships this year, as well, so if you would like some great photo ops and friendly competition, join us there in October:-)

Results – very good!  Second in Senior II Gold, first in Senior III Gold and first in Senior III Novice.  Ready for the Pro-Am Fiesta now!
