    Colorguard WGI and competions

    Post  phuynh on Wed Feb 03, 2010 1:24 am

    After enduring all the eight-hour practices, the heated pep talks from advisor Mr. George Armenta, sweat and tears; colorguard was fully prepared to start the season off with a BANG! Running out in their “Asian Artists and Artisans” inspired costumes, World Guard quickly positioned themselves to their formations. Following World Guard was the combination of A and B Guard, who’s theme is “Asian Artists and Artisans.” Their routine was modeled after the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
    Since the end of their marching season, colorguard has been training by holding practices on a daily basis. A typical World Guard member’s practice schedule would be—Monday’s and Wednesday’s practice from 6:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. while the other school days practices would start at 2:00 p.m. and last until 10:00 p.m. Colorguard members even had to take time away from their Thanksgiving weekend and Winter Break just to prep for upcoming events. None of these practices were held in front of a live audience, so on Feb. 3 AHS World Guard Preview Show was held. According to Christine the preview show was for World Guard “to get the fell of performing in front of a real audience.”
    All this preparation for World Guard was for the upcoming high school invitational’s and regional, while A and B Guard only had to worry about one invitational. The first event for World Guard was the Roosevelt High Invitational held in Corona on Feb. 6. With exactly two more weeks to practice, World Guard was joined by A and B Guard at the Marina High School Invitational at Huntington Beach. The ultimate competition was the Winter Guard Competition (WIC) held at Rancho Cucamonga High School on Feb. 20 and 21. WCI Regional has many more schools which participate, along with well-known judges. Senior co-captain, Christine Lee felt that all these factors made “the competition that much more enthralling.” With consent from George, World Guard will be given the opportunity to compete at the World Championships held at Dayton, Ohio in early April. All returning members can definitely remark that Ohio is the most memorable competitions. Senior captain, Katherine Chin remembers meeting guards from all across the country, even the world, and how they all shared the same feeling of awe once they “walk[ed] down the steep tunnel into the stadium full of hundreds and hundreds of audience members.”
    Given that these first couple of events marked the beginning of their competition season, Katherine hopes that they can keep bringing the enthusiasm and excitement to every show just like they did to the previous ones. She knows that with the help from one another, they can and will execute beautiful performances “at every competition…so that all [their] hard efforts [would] be rewarded.” Katherine has to prepare the girls to “persevere and be resilient through all challenges” to fully enjoy the experience of being in World Guard. Christine agrees with Katherine as well, because she hopes that they all walk away from the season “feeling good about it despite our placements or awards.”
    After the last couple of nail-biting weeks, colorguard has managed to walk away with[what place they all took at the high school invitational and the regional. Don’t know yet so jut taking up space. Jahsdakdjlkj;lkjkj;klj;lsdkfj;lskdjf;lskdjf;laksjdf;laksjdf;lkasj vlaj;kda; v;aodjhoei;eoijq;km;lkj.] These are only a few of the chances where colorguard has the chance to express themselves through their performance and make Arcadia proud.

    Umm a couple of things:

    - I don't think theres anything as Winter Guard Competition, Theres Winter Guard International (WGI)
    - There are only two guards this year, a World Guard and an A Guard, there is no B Guard.
    - The show is titled Artists and Artisans, not ASIAN Artists and Artisans
    - Please double check your facts

    Well, I understand that there invitationals was suppose to be plural and regional suppose to be singular. I just thought it sounded funny when you listed them together like that when they weren't really parallel. I guess it's not incorrect, though.

    And, yeah, I think it's fine to leave it as 'is.' I assumed it was past tense since previously, your next sentence said: Their routine WAS modeled...

    I guess it is World Championship rather than World Championships... but if so you need to fix: World Guard will be given the opportunity to compete at the World Championships

    Sorry for the confusion Pamela ):

Running out in their “Heroes and Villains” inspired costumes, A Guard( this year it consists of a combination of both A and B Guard members) [maybe "... inspired costumes, A Guard, this year consisting of both A and B Guard members, quickly positioned themselves into their formations." That way you take care of the nasty parenthesis.] quickly positioned themselves into their formations. Following them was World Guard, whose theme is “Artists and Artisans.” Their routine is modeled after the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and [is set] to a remixed version of “White’s SS.”
    Since the end of their marching season, Colorguard has been training by holding practices on a daily basis. A typical World Guard member’s practice schedule would be: Monday and Wednesday practices from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. and from [delete from] 2:00 to 10:00 p.m. during the weekends [enter period..?] Colorguard members even had to take time away from their Thanksgiving weekend and Winter Break just to prep for upcoming events. None of these practices were held in front of a live audience, so on Feb. 3 AHS the World Guard Preview Show was held. According to senior assistant leader Christine Lee, the main reason for the preview show was for World Guard “to get the feel of performing in front of a real audience.”
    All this preparation for World Guard was for the upcoming high school invitational’s and regional, while A Guard only had to worry about one invitational. [huh? wording is weird.] The first event for World Guard was the Roosevelt High Invitational held in Corona on Feb. 6. With exactly two more weeks to practice, World Guard was joined by A and B Guard [just A guard since you already specified that A is combined] at the Marina High School Invitational at Huntington Beach. The ultimate competition was [will be] the Winter Guard International (WGI) held at Rancho Bernardo High School on Feb. 27 and 28. [we distribute on the 25, so this wouldn't have happened yet] WGI Regional has many more schools participating in front of well-known judges. Christine felt that all these factors made “the competition that much more enthralling.” With consent from Mr. Armenta, World Guard will be given the opportunity to compete at the World Championship held at Dayton, OH in early April. All returning members can definitely remark that the World Championship is the most memorable competition. Senior captain, Katherine Chin remembers meeting guards from all across the country, even the world, and how they all shared the same feeling of awe once they “walk[ed] down the steep tunnel into the stadium full of hundreds and hundreds of audience members.”
    Given that these first couple of events marked the beginning of their competition season, Katherine hopes that they can keep bringing the enthusiasm and excitement to every show just like they did to the previous ones. She knows that with the help from one another, they can and will execute beautiful performances “at every competition…so that all [their] hard efforts [would] be rewarded.” Katherine has to prepare the members to “persevere and be resilient through all challenges” to fully enjoy the experience of being in World Guard. Christine agrees with Katherine as well, because she hopes that they all walk away from the season “feeling good about it despite our placements or awards.”
    After the last couple of nail-biting weeks, Colorguard has managed to walk away with [what place they all took at the high school invitational and the regional. Don’t know yet so jut taking up space. Jahsdakdjlkj;lkjkj;klj;lsdkfj;lskdjf;lskdjf;laksjdf;laksjdf;lkasj vlaj;kda; v;aodjhoei;eoijq;km;lkj.] These are only a few oppurtunities where Colorguard has the chance to express themselves through their performance and make Arcadia proud.

    A typical World Guard member’s practice schedule would be: Monday and Wednesday's from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. and on the weekends 2:00 to 10:00 p.m. Colorguard members even took time away from their Thanksgiving weekend and Winter Break to prepare for the upcoming events. However, no practices were held in front of a live audience, so on Feb. 3 the AHS World Guard Preview Show was held. According to senior assistant leader Christine Lee, the preview show was for World Guard “to get the feel of performing in front of a real audience.”

    A Guard was preparing for an upcoming high school invitational, and World Guard was busy perfecting their routine for invitationals and a regional. The first event for World Guard was the Roosevelt High Invitational held in Corona on Feb. 6. With two more weeks to practice for the second competition, World Guard and A Guard competed at the Marina High School Invitational at Huntington Beach. The ultimate competition is the Winter Guard International (WGI), held at Rancho Bernardo High School on Feb. 27 and 28. WGI Regional has many more schools participating in front of well-known judges. Christine felt that all these factors made “the competition that much more enthralling.” With consent from Mr. Armenta, World Guard will be given the opportunity to compete at the World Championship held at Dayton, OH in early April. All returning members can definitely remark that the World Championship is the most memorable competition. Senior captain, Katherine Chin remembers meeting guards from all across the country, even the world, and how they all shared the same feeling of awe once they “walk[ed] down the steep tunnel into the stadium full of hundreds and hundreds of audience members.”

    Given that these first couple of events marked the beginning of their competition season, Katherine hopes that they can keep bringing the enthusiasm and excitement to every show just like always. She knows that with the help from one another, they can and will execute beautiful performances at each and every competition. Katherine has to prepare the members to “persevere and be resilient through all challenges” to fully enjoy the experience of being in World Guard. Christine agrees with Katherine as well, because she hopes that they all walk away from the season “feeling good about it despite [their] placements or awards.”

    After the last couple of nail-biting weeks, Colorguard has managed to walk away with _________________________________________________________ (places they took at Marina High and in Dayton) But at the Roosevelt High School Invitational, World Guard was the only one competing so there was no placing. These are only a few opportunities where Colorguard has the chance to express themselves through their performance and make Arcadia proud.

    Running out in their “Heroes and Villains” inspired costumes A Guard members toss their flags, rifles, and sabres along to “Four Minutes to Save the World.” Following them was World Guard, whose theme is “Artists and Artisans.” Their routine is modeled after the opening ceremony for the 2008 Beijing Olympics with a remixed version of “White’s SS.” Colorguard had to endure countless eight-hour practices, heated pep talks from adviser Mr. George Armenta, blood, sweat, and tears to start the season off with a BANG!

    Some last minute details that I just got today at practice,
    A Guard has been promoted to Scholastic A, which is one level higher than Intermediate A red.
    [You can say that in your conclusion]
    and you may want to look at the paper I gave, some of the things I marked, you didn't change;;
    and some parts still sound awk.
    Also;; i liked the first two sentences of the intro;; but then the third sentence kinda feels out of place, you know?
    MRAWRAW :'<
    I wish you were in 2nd. Its freaking awesome here hahahhaa
    Say Hi to Melissa, Regina, Eileen, Mr. Creeper with the camera, Rhiannon, Shannon, Nancy, /pauses for air,
    Maurice, Chris, Hanna, Justin, and my favorite Tom Felton Fanclub member, ASHLEYY CHII.
