We made one mistake this year. We tried to repeat 1988. I brought in George Zingali this year and he was the first one to tell me that we should be breaking ground instead of trying to beat our own great shows of the past. I always knew we had talent but no one had ever looked at me and told me that. This was the first year Peggy Twiggs worked with us. She and Wanda were wonderful together and brought a good flag line to great. This also was a huge guard for us. for the first time we had to deal with a lot of kids from out of state that wanted to play on our team. We were drifting from a local guard to an out of state guard in a matter of a year or two. My Fondest memory? ... Taking the members of the guard horse back riding in California (yes we went two years in a row) and seeing kids on horse back that had never gone before, in the rain, where I lost my shoes in the mud.
