Awesome show, any one of the large mixed could have taken that in my estimation.
Big shout out to all our new Loveland friends what a great group you all are!
Everyone we spoke with was a pleasure. We hope you enjoyed your time “out east”

I’ve heard that a few schools have dropped due to the weather. I don’t have the exact schedule but there sadly will be some changes soon with many Massachusetts dealing with snow.

Yep, unfortunately Lowell and Shepherd Hill (Fantasy and Illusion) are unable to come due to the storm. I've been waiting to post due to the chance that other schools might pull out as well. I will post an updated schedule shortly!
