1st Place!

This Friday the band and chorus from my my school, which I'm both in, competed agaisnt other schools and thousands of kids at the Hershey Park competition.

And very long story short...We got 4 first place awards!! They were:

  • 1st place chorus for junior high
  • 1st place band for junior high
  • 1st place overall for chorus of all the schools, junior high and middle school
  • 1st place overall for band of all the schools, junior high and middle school

Here's all the pictures I took throughout the day

Some of my friends and me, being bored on the 2 and a half hour bus drive.

^ There's one of the many rows of buses, and if you look closely in the backround, you'll see the building were we had to meet for the award ceremony.

Here's some pictures of the entrance to the park, and my friends and me.

And finally, pictures of the trophies!

The ride home was actually pretty exciting too.
My friend Joey asked out my other friend Ashley in front of the whole bus and she said yes. They're really cute together :D
And our busdriver got pulled over because he was doing 82 miles an hour.

So, I saw My Chemical Romance at Bamboozle. Let me tell you, they were freaking amazing. Not to mention all the other bands that were great too. Plus I got to go crowdsurfing :D very cool.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to take any pictures of my friends and I at the festival since cameras weren't allowed in. Plus, I wasn't anywhere near close enough to the stages to get good pictures with my crappy cell phone camera.
The only really bad part about going to bamboozle was the huge amounts of people. Seriously, if you were in the front of the stage you'd end up getting pushed and stepped on the whole time. Oh, and all the drunk people there were annoying. But it was worth it to see M.C.R. with my friends. Plus, I've got a ton of funny/stupid/weird stories to tell people now.

Oh, and I've found out news about where M.C.R. got food poisoning from. It turns out they got sick in Williamsburg, West Virginia with salmonella poisoning at the Green Leaf cafe. A lot of angry fans are actually sending death threat letters to the owners. Wow...

I'm also excited about Friday next week. That's the day my choir is competing against choirs from all over my state at Hershey Park. I'll probably be able to take some pictures from that.
