Subject: I was SO happy to be back at the O and see my daughter dance on that stage again…but is it just me, or did it make everyone so sad to see how small the event was?

I think the numbers were appropriate considering COVID protocols. I imagine there were people who didn't want to risk it, others who got sick and couldn't make it, and some who just were not competition ready after a lot of time off. I was so happy to see my daughter up there and I thought the region did a fabulous job. It was nice to be back (ish)

[> [> [> [> Subject: Also keep in mind at the time entries were due, vaccines still weren't approved for the 5-11s... Numbers may be generally down, but that does account for some of it.
