When my daughter, who is now a senior, was in middle school, we were told there had been some copyright issue, and Waukee was not allowed to sell DVDs. The upside was always that parents were free to videotape at Waukee -- you don't get the same quality, obviously, but you don't have to spend $20 - $30 or wait for the DVD to arrive in the mail.
Well that stinks. I got to see part of our day show DVD in the critique. I really, really wanted a finals DVD since our prep made it in too and my son is in that group. Oh well....
Seriously though...who has a competition without DVDs for sale? Waukee should add this to their "how can we improve our competition" checklist.
Sorry Mr. Temple but we had something happen about six years ago...it had to do with copyright or something. I'm not sure. In any case though we can not and won't be able to sell dvd's to people. Kinda stinks but that's just how it goes. I graduated last year and I haven't gotten a dvd from our school since '02-'03 season.
Yay to my fellow Stephen groups!!! I am so excited for Mitchell!! I don't know how i I will lay a month! Oh wait... A ten day cruise in Hawaii with my choir should help! LOL
P.S. Good job ankeny for snatchin out the choreography award!! If anything I thought it would go the other way around where you guys would get vocals so this was a pleasant surprise!!
All of Titanium had a blast at Waukee! It was a good way to start the competition season for us. Urbandale and Ankeny- I am so glad I had a chance to see you in finals! Both of you had awesome performances. Mitchell and Louis Central both had great performances too. Thanks to Waukee for the amazing day!
Studio, FANTASTIC JOB!! I know it had been awhile since you competed, but it sounds like you came back from your competitive layoff strong! Mr Woodin, Mr Temple and I are so proud of you guys! Just keep your eye on the ball at Emmetsburg, then Florida will be an incredible performance/reward hosting Showstoppers, and I can't wait to see you there! God Bless, Damon
