Northern Star Show Review


After some 8 months since our last Contest, the new season was quickly around again.

We'd been rehearsing in the pouring rain the Sunday before, and achieved a lot. Friday's rehearsal was cancelled because of a certain football team, so we used Saturday evening instead to get ready.

On the day, reviewing the show, the simple goal was to get out and get from start to finish (not easy in todays climate). After that in places we achieved well and in others we had a bit of a nightmare.

Me personally had a few wobbles, basically I think the long and short of it is we are in a higher division and competiting against well established units - it takes no prisioners.

Had we of been in Division 2 it would of been a different story, however we are rising to the challenge. As always a few scores which caught the eye of Instructors, and after watching the video some parts of the show we now have ideas where we can quickly develop.

We've been quickly put down, however I'd reflect and say 1 and a half seasons ago we were in Division 3. Looking forward I've seen the potential in rehearsal and when running the show in blocks.

With a Show this Saturday and only 1 rehearsal in-between we can quickly put the previous weeks score to bed, however it will need an immense effort and concentration from members.

Lets see what happens.
