Some might recall that Meego's group was the state chamPEENS last year. This year's scores aren't quite on the same line, but I think the kids are having fun anyways.
It's a judged competition, and I don't get too caught up in the standings. It's just pretty entertaining most of the time.
One of the groups had a "hillbilly" theme and broke out the moonshine jugs, bow saw, jaw harps, washboard, and spoons. I think they were my favorite.
Another group depicted this crazy violent barbarian theme. A cymbal player fell down during a crossover, but the whole show was so violent and chaotic, it fit right in. I know they were having fun! The first place group was dressed like Keebler elves. Their show was also quite creative as they banged on various wooden things. Later we learned that they were supposed to be trees...
At times, it all seems a bit overdone to me, but it's nice the artsy kids have something to occupy them during the winter months. There is also winter guard - indoor flag and rifle competition. Meego's girlfriend is active in that, and Meego was telling me about some of the obnoxious mom volunteers.
"Are you sure you should eat that much?", and such, during team lunches.
This is why I'll help out here and there but don't sign up for any boards or committees at this level...
In other news, it's been a good week. I sold some stuff today on craigslist in about two hours, which tells me I could've asked for more money. But really I'm glad to have it gone.
