Thanks! That would be soooo awesome! But honestly, I would be super happy just to get past prelims :stuck_out_tongue:
Thanks for all the encouragement.

p.s. Does anyone have anything that can help with nervousness? Thanks again :slight_smile:

Does anyone know if it’s worth going to the texas state contest as a spectator? Will there be vendors or anything? I live in Houston so it would be a bit of a drive.

I’d personally say it’s important that you enjoy yourself. Enthusiasm is contagious and it’ll help get the crowd going. Even if you mess up, even if you aren’t all that good, if you’re having a good time people will enjoy your performance. :slight_smile:

That’s my opinion of it anyway. Look at Robert Kucera’s recent EYYC performance:

Even though he came 5th, I found it the most enjoyable freestyle of the entire day. I’m sure he enjoyed himself a lot more than many of the other competitors as well, plus the crowd loved it. :slight_smile:


(angryskills) #17

wow! thanks. I will keep all that in mind.


(angryskills) #18
