    yay me

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by wordwizard, Nov 24, 2007.

    I mentioned a while ago that I was entering a float in our yearly santa/christmas parade. Well I did and it was a success. The theme was -x-mas around the world-
    We did a float showing a brazillian x mas. It was a great time. We even had brazillian x mas music pumping. :D (i will post pictures later)

    Best of all, we won a 500 dollar prize to our local grocery store we had to split it, and I got 200 dollars out of it)
    We won the category-"Best new Float"-meaning it was our first year entering and compared to all the other new entries... ours was the BEST.
    As I was just writing this, I got a phone call from the offical judges, and I was supposed to recieve a plaque and I must go pick it up.

    What an exciting day.

    Congratulations wordwizard that is really wonderful to hear.
    Glad that you had fun at the same time as well though.
    At the end of the day all that really matters is that you had a lot of fun and it sounds like you did.

    I hope you do enter next year as I am sure it will be just as much fun for you as this years.

    Torana :)
