CONTEST HASHTAG! #atxtwirlfest2019
For this event we strongly encourage our Texas Twirlers to utilize the hashtag #atxtwirlfest2019 when posting photos of the competition weekend on social media. Use the hashtag and your photo could end up on this blog or the contest site! Don't forget to tag @twirlingiscatchingtx on Facebook or Instagram and we may share your pic on one of our pages.
Highlighted Event - Created to honor contest co-director, Ashley Wood's, mother, who fought and defeated Breast Cancer in 2015, and to celebrate all the women in our twirling community that have overcome so much, there is a special Best Costume event, unlike any Best Costume event you have seen before. The "Honorary Best Costume" competition puts all ages against each other on the floor at the same time to judge who has the "best costume". The entry fee for this event ($10) is a direct donation to Twirling to Fight Cancer. TTFC Founder, John 'Baton' Mitchell, will once again be judging at the contest, and will be there to accept the donation check. Last year this event raised $250.00 for TTFC... What will it be this year?
Congrats to Collyn Lambeck, the recipient of the 2018 Best Costume Award
