I cant believe my guard n I got bumped up to a higher division, we were really surprise at Elk Grove because we didint even find out until the day before..

In a way im glad Rowland feels that we're too good to be in Novice A but I still want to be in Novice A and not Intermediate.. I feel like we're no where near ready to be in that division!.... Considering the fact that i know my own guard a little too well... but ahhh... Im scare and excited and worried about Champs!!!.. May the BEST Intermediate guard win... :D

Well we watched her sister perform and a lot of other Guards perform too. But I have to say that one Armijo Show was my favorite. It was amazing, and so beautiful it made me cry :cry: . After they finished performing I was so full of emotion. It was like they were telling a story that I knew to well. I know now that I'll never be able to listen to that song the same way again and that I am now an Armijo High School A-Guard FAN!!! :bow: You guys did an marvelous job with your show and I look forward to watching you guys again. :)
Was this the team that was wearing a black "velvet" one piece costume? The song was really sad and most of the performers were actually crying at the end. Was that part of the show?
