sorry to miss you SD - and I hope you didn't misunderstand - I was actually very happy with my one call back!  Considering about 20 couples didn't get one in that heat thats actually not so shabby Wink  And yes, sunday truly erased the negativity of saturday.  Glad it was that way round Cheesy

Good call.  The quantal leap thread on DF of course.  Thanks for reminding me 'cause you are 100% right (it took me a moment to make that link - but when I did I got goose bumps).

What did I do?  Changed pros for a new start; totally changed how I dance, worked hard and competed with DP; listened and practised.
And, I must add, had the time of my life...

Now I have to make a plan for the next year.  Much of the same (hopefully without the pro change Smiley).

OSB was great .... met alot of people and just enjoyed being in the moment there. Way overwhelmed and taking it all in ... the dances, dresses, all glittery, seeing the people from my studio compete, etc and so forth. So so much ... can't wait til next year.

Congrats everyone on your results.

I was out of town, got back today and was at the simulated comp tonight at our studio. One of the youth couples won so they did a celebratory dance and that was cool.  One day I hope I will look like that when I dance, but i'll never be 13 again lol.

Blackpool was excellent and the world latin championships exceptional. I'm so tired now, time for bed...

They've already posted the results at OSB!  No score sheets yet though.

OSB is done for another year - at least in my dance world its the one that stirs the most excitement and events.  I had my lows but also had reall highs - and when you look back its the people you meet and interact with that leave the biggest impressions not really the events at all.  It was lovely to meet some of you for the first time and particularly nice to spend time with etp, and pruthe.  Oh, and I must mention that I met Maja Serve too - but thats a meeting that I am still assimilating as it were.

Lastly, a big thanks to Pruthe who printed out hundreds of PDO flyer/cards that were on the tables.  We've had a couple of new members (very quiet ones, hint Wink) in addition to a wave of spammers which may herrald from these cards and we can not know how many more casual guests we have.  Hopefullly they will like what they see and join up too in time.

Thats 2 OSBs for me - one more and I'm a veteran right Smiley

SOO much fun.  Of course, didn't hurt that I got to watch three of my couples get their first OSB wins, one of them only a year into competing.  Smiley  Already looking at hotels for next year.  Smiley

I was really excited about Olga and Kirill's placing at OSB in Smooth as this was their first comp together since announcing their partnership. Totally excited to see these 2 together and looking forward to their growth and eventually their first place wins.

I saw those PDO posts on table on Sunday morning, sort of felt heart-warming although so busy over the weekend dancing, couldn't meet any PDO's; Probably print the PDO posts in color and make Katusha/Arunas photos colored more visible?

Hope we'll get more members.

Yeah you'll be a veteran for OSB for sure:)

I really wanted the PDO logo to be in colour but the pressure here was for B&W.  I might just use poetic licence and pring in colour next time anyway.
OTOH the flyer really stood out because it was simple compared with all that other stuff on the table Shocked
