In reply to: ED 's message, "Re: Pageant Obligations. Click in." on 07:47:54 03/02/09 Mon

I completely and whole-heartedly agree with Tom's opinion. Pageants, while of course providing incredible support for today's young women, seemed to have their "glory days" when the only pressure came from other contestants or contestants' moms. It was all about the girl that stood 2" out of line from the rest of the contestants and that tall blonde with the hairpiece that I'm sure was illegal.
My original response to ED's reply about spending time on one contestant is: why can't both ED's support that contestant? If she fulfills her duties for both pageants and competes at state, the financial and emotional support she could receive from two programs is phenomenal! Especially in today's economy when one local probably doesn't have the money to afford expensive evening wear and expensive swimsuits. What a blessing that could be!
Now I realize that is impossible because of all of the rules in place, but I just don't understand why it must be such a big to-do.
