I crying my poor clowny eyes out at the banquet. I was called up 7 times to get an award!!! I was flabbergasted, amazed, and excited- all the dreaming I have done since last conference and hard work has paid off. You see last year I went to my very first conference and Groovy and I did a skit and came in dead last place. That didnt discourage me! I wanted to come back and show that I could learn and improve. I was onfire to be the best clown I could be. I won 1st place in the parade. It was so much fun. and after I jumped in the fountain right there in the Landing. I have never had more fun and I am excited for next year. LOOK OUT!!  Here comes Pinkie and Groovy. I got the following awards: 1st Paradibility, 3rd walkabout, 3rd cheek art facepainting, 2nd full-face facepainting, 2nd group skit, 1st Memory alley book, and 1st memory individual book. Next year I will enter even more competitions including balloon sculpture. Watch out the theme is Senior Prom so I may have Groovy in a prom dress lol! are we having the time of our lives- youbetcha!
