End of Beginners

So, in seven months I've been to six competitions and I got my last beginners stamp in October 2009. I've won five overall trophies and two perpetuals, Highest Aggregate Beginner and Best Adult Beginner. My mom wanted me to take pictures of me with my medals and trophies, so here's one of the pictures. I am rather excited to start competing in Novice and I will have a competition in January 2010. I will be dancing the Half Tulloch there and let's just say that will be interesting. I've also taken video of all my dances at the competitions and posted them on youtube. (my channel, www.youtube.com . . . I've posted links of my first competition on the video board a while ago.)
Thanks for reading!

Congratulations! Are you dancing in Sonoma? I will be. It's neat that the Beginners and Novices are doing Half Tulloch! It's a departure from the same old Fling, Sword, ST, Lilt/Flora.

Congratulations to you!

As a teacher, it's always exciting for me when a student progresses to the next level. It also means an increased, fun challenge for the teacher which is one of the reasons why we teach! Best of luck in the upcoming levels! Great picture!

Thank you all for the congratulations and encouraging words!
HighlandBum - Videos will defiantly come!
Punkqueene- Yes, I will be at that competition in Sonoma, we should meet. It is a breath of fresh air that beginners and novices will be doing the Half Tulloch, it is also a bit nerve racking because I don't know what to expect! Well, I'll find out when I'm there I suppose!
Again, Thank you everyone for the congratulations!

We should meet! And maybe take another Northern California DDN member photo like you guys did over the summer. As for Half Tulloch, the squirrely part is just getting onstage and into the dance! (For example, I can't remember how to, without looking it up! ;D)

A big congrats. I hope that my trophy and medal haul is that big when I finish beginners. I've 3 stamps. I like the idea of the Best Adult Beginner Trophy it's a pity that I'm normally the only adult beginner here, in 12 months I've come across 4 other adults at comps who were pre-premiers. The oldest age group I've competed in was 12 & over although I've heard that Champs of Champs Aust has a 14 or 16 years and over age group (if I can afford to go)
