Seriously Victoria Advocate we can make comments on this article but not on the lesbian couple that recently got married? The Advocate has gone to an all time low. Nothing better to report on than that. Give me a break. I guess thats why I no longer buy the advocate!!!
Moneyman. I know for a fact all your hearsay is all true. Shame on Z.
You see I was actually around to see a lot of things. I did see team members quit, I did see moms get upset but I can honestly say that I never saw or heard the threats. There are a lot of things that have been posted in drill team blogs that I could say were not true because I was there that day or that year and I have questioned about give us the specifics. I have not posted any lies only, what i know and what I have seen. And believe you me I was always there, at practices, at competitions, at football games, at making costumes sessions. If I wasn't there other moms were and we did talk about what was going on a daily basis when it came to our girls. I can't believe I missed out on so much going on.
I really don't know what other fundraisers you are talking about because we didn't do anything else but TKB. With TKB you had obligations to fulfill in order to make it a success. For example if you had so many tickets to sell and you didn't sell all of them you were responsible for what you didn't sell.
One year I didn't sell all of four wheeler raffle tickets, I owed $50 on my daughters account. TKB paid all her competition expenses, such as entry fees for the team, transportation, hotels, meals, and her costumes. Not only her expenses but the whole teams as well as the sets. This times 2 to 3 competitions that they would go to whether in state or out of state. So you are telling me that TKB didn't pay for squat? You are so wrong. Lots of hard work on the teams part, their families, and DJs.
Have you ever seen the past teams perform? I mean competition dances, exhibitions, not just at football games. One competition season they might have done 4 dances, another year 5 or 6. Add up all the sets, the costumes, make-up, travel expenses, entry fees, etc. And don't say what a waste. Everyone worked hard for our kids because that's what they wanted to do and we were there to support them in their endeavors. You want to win, you gotta do big things to win and DJ knows what it takes to win.
So please tell me about the fundraisers I didn't know I was supposed to do since you do know so much about this drill team? I think my $50 went a long ways.
Well Duece apparently you have plenty of time on your hands. Why don't you try to post on something more constructive than your speculations about TKB and the drill team. You just don't want to let it go. Let the TKB fundraisers, the drill team team, and the school sort it out. This project took money to put on but it had always brought the money back in. It was set up for the drill team and the drill team members are the ones that are going to benefit.
I know for a fact that TKB does pay for competitions expenses. You had to fulfill your obligations and you saw no other impending costs. In the earlier years there were no dances so I actually do not know about the income from those but I do know that TKB did pay for my daughters competition expenses. I know there were times that we did not sell and might have been responsible for some account balances but I knew of many girls that did everything and they had cleared accounts.
The bull riders put on a fantastic show as they were professionals riding prime bulls. Of course that was not free and parents knew that was an added expense to bring them in.
I feel all those posters that have the inside scoop are just ex drill team parents that have an ax to grind with DJ not because of the way money might have been spent or handled but because they have their personal vendetta because probably someones feelings were hurt. These parents are using their drill team knowledge to hurt the drill team and DJ. To those parents just let it go and be glad your child has moved on and grown up. My daughters were good dancers and their feelings might have been hurt because they didn't make a dance, or become an officer but they were not quitters or held grudges. They loved the dance, they loved and respected DJ and they became winners.I'm not for West, I'm not for East. I wish both schools and drill teams the best of luck. Sad to say my children have no Alma mater to go back to. Biggest mistake was consolidation, that falls on the school board.
Yes go Golden Sabers! You go Legacy Dance Team!!!! Saw you dance Friday night for the first time and y'all were awesome and y'all looked awesome. Brought back many good memories.
Kim, you are wrong in the fact that yes these kids have been full of talent and in their way got to be National Champs, but it was DJ that got them there. She is the one that brings out that talent and knows what to do with it, shes given these kids the self esteem, the know how to win and the want of wanting to win big. She knows what it takes to become a National Champion team.
