It's the last comp of the season, everyone should go!

lbp is too chickensh*t, they never go!

shut up. how does that make them a chicken if they dont go? they did compete against channel, carson, and bishop throughout this whole season and at usa. it doesnt make sense to call them a chicken for not going to dtu. it's simply just not their thing, idiot.

WOW!! this is going to be a great comp.

so we leave half way through... then come back and pay double the price?

Anonymous said...

ya i was wondering that too.

Anonymous said...

so there is a prelims and finals for dtu too?

or do pep flags just perform one day.

go carson! go ci! go bishop!
good luck to everyone!

Anonymous said...

finals is only for the performers competing for pageant

everything else is performing only once. if you win in your category, you get to perform for exhibition during the pageant finals.

im not too sure if they will have the overall high pointer in that category that gets to perform like last year.

like narbonne won two flags but only ci's single got to perform because they were overall high pointer. we'll see. good luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

Short Flags prelims comepete on Saturday. Then everybody leaves and come back for PAGEANT FINALS where they announce the winners, performance from all "High Point Champions", and the crowning of Miss Dance/Drill USA title. Of course the pageant finals are more expensive because it's more spectacular. This is the last and one of biggest competition of the season so Good luck to all!

"video taping was restricted. if you were caught, your team will be penaltied. i hope someone bought the dvd."

That doesn't make any sense.

So, if I were some random tourist walking in and capturing performances on video, an official would penalize all the teams I recorded?

I call SHENANIGANS. Someone's making sh*t up...

You put the MISS in MISCOMMUNICATION.

How would Miss Dance Drill Team USA even find out who I am? They can maybe make a general announcement prohibiting video recording of any kind, however.



*If the rule is true, I'm proven wrong. What a great way to sabotage those short flag teams, though. Pay admission, record ______________________'s performance, have that team receive a penalty. NICE.

maury said...

they would penalize the team your from. but if you were a tourist then they will just tell you to stop and ask to leave.

go buy the DVD if you are desperate

I havnt seen channel this good in a long time.. they dohave a taste of channel early 2000 yrs with a mix of modern moves. ive gotta say that channel has won the season this year.. weak in the beginning but came out soo sharp and clean towards the end. great job for a wonderful season!!!!!!!

i disagree. ci was clean despite the two drops. i think it was their mount that won them in the category and overall competition. it was the most innovative creativity i saw in the pep flag category this season and in ms drill competition. regardless, narbonne deserved that second place finish.

Anonymous said...

I agree with you. Narbonne deserved 1st. Channel wasn't so great anyways. They lacked energy and showmanship. On top of that, they had a terrible flag drop. A girl had to run for the flag. Narbonne had a few fumbles but they weren't all that bad. You can say they were almost flawless.

Anonymous said...

CI won . & that's that those bitches deserved it haha get it :) narbonne is cool and all but they definetly lost their touch ! Compare them to ol' school narbonne and you'll see the difference...no ofense but they deserved 2nd.. Plus CI was innovative and they were still able to keep their style ! They definetly showed everyone up ! Especially with 5 people !!! Fierce bitches get it :) hahahaha you girls deserved it !! You showed everyone !

Channel islands reaching for the sky .. Bow to the champions CI!

Suck on this Bitches!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

STFU. Channel is lame.They won national cuz of Wendy ( the director of pep flag and channel's alumni ).I bet people didn't know that. right? They also found themselves lucky at miss drill. With that poor performance, they shouldn't have won 1st.

Haha yeah fool well let you keep thinking that :) if that's what makes you feel better and if Thats what justifies your team's loss then go ahead and think that you know your still hearing that echo bitch.. Haha bow to the champions ... CI !!! Hahahahaha ..

The Songleading/Pom/Pep Flag Program Director's named is Carina.

You can see that listed under USA's own website.

And "Wendy?" Are you talking about Winnie? If you are, yes she IS a Channel alum... and she's been judging USA Nationals since 2004. You know, 2004 when Carson started their 3-peat at Nationals. If you want to call a "bias" then maybe you should have better information to back it up.

Anonymous said...

I am very appalled that someone would say narbonne lost their touch, not innovative enough, copy paste routines etc... from what I know they have always kept their touch and have truly sticked to their respective style. They have never used three flags in a routine, neither have they ever used a pyramid in any of their doubles routine. And as a added plus, They still use the same flag size carson and channel islands use to use back in the day. They are very talented twirlers that are always in sync with interesting technical tricks. As a whole, narbonne short flags are very humble to the community and they respect all the teams.

Anonymous said...

channel only had two drops and the girls fell back into their moves really fast and narbonne was had multiple fumbles... and carson was a mess. channel won i think because of their cleanliness and entertaining routein. i thinkk u should all look at the score sheets if your wondering about the placements. big difference btw.

i admire narbonne for not jumping on the bandwagon and doin the 3flags thing as they keep their originality. theyre very talented and still twirl in their signature way.. but judges want to be entertained by something new.. something narbonne needs to show more of... plus no offense the judges dont really care about flag sizes

ci, bishop, carson, narbonne, and morse they all have old looking uniforms

LBP, arcadea, oxnard (1 of the 2)and adolfo have the best in my opinion.

Temple city makes them look pregnant.

san pedro and hoover are boring... they need color.

i wanna know what monte vista, bell, and glendora are thinking?

carson, bell, and oxnard all have more then one.

Anonymous said...

I love bishop, LBP's, morse's and Carsons uniforms. They look classic, yet soo chic.

Channel, San Pedro and Narbonne's uniforms look old school. Almost as if they were still wearing sweaters.

I'm not a big fan of Oxnards, well the White and Maroon one anyways. It makes the girls look bulky and doesnt fit them well. Their maroon and yellow ones on the other hand are great.

I liked Bell's uniforms more last year than this year, and who can't forget 2007 eek!)

Hoover.. booring

Glendora- loved their uniform last year

Temple city- nice uniforms, but the guy should have worn shorts. I'm a big fan of guys wearing shorts than the pants. It just makes them look weird.

Anonymous said...

that's dumb.

bishop, ci, and narbonne basically have the 2-piece same uniforms.. all-pleat skirts, long sleeve "sweaters," 2 toned.. with the striping in the same place. the only differences are the colors and the logos on their chests. narbonne has like a cartoon character girl, ci has cross flags, and bishop has their mascot written out.

i, for one, think a-line skirts should be banned from pep flags! they don't move.. pep flags is cute and bouncy. a-line skirts are for cheer and song.

Anonymous said...

Are u talking about the all red uniform last year for Glendora because I was not so fond of that one. I liked this year's uniform, the mostly white one with a bunch of red in it, much better.

Anonymous said...

Good job narbonne!!!! you ladies will always and forever be my favorite pep flag team... dont let these haters out here tear you down.. you girls are the shit.. forget what everyone else think... you ladies stay true to your style... im sure with a flawless routine you girls will kill.. no one and i mean NO ONE.. has a better style than you...

Next year will be exciting for Channel Islands.
Channel Islands is losing 2 members bcuz their graduating. My resources told me that 6 or 7 girls are trying out for the team. The team is very strict. They dont let anyone watch them try out unlike the other teams.The girls are being taught about discipline and hard work. (Not trying to say that other teams are not working hard). Channel Islands might not have that much of a financial support but what they have are alumni' who comes back to teach them what they have learned about being a flag girl.

CI does have a habit of getting cocky after a win. but they also have a habbit of loosing after a win. you guys gotta see a trend. your losses are the reason you're pushing your self so hard. please don't disappoint me again with another loss because you're over confident next year.

even 2008 you lady's thought you had it because of regionals but you where a flop at nationals. the attitude has to stop.

Anonymous said...

Well from what I can tell CI isn't as cocky as people say they are... I would know bcuz I competed against them at nationals....... I even chatted with one of the new girls after awards....well in MY OPINION.....

Anonymous said...

Last year CI wasn't cocky. Their routine was better than my teams...it was just that it had too many drops and too creative.. Don't get me wrong 2008 routine was very innovative but wasn't executed very well.. Poly's 2008 wasn't very difficult but very clean and executed flawlessly..
Don't u guys agree?

Anonymous said...

^ agree. another fact that routine only will not gurantee a win, u gotta be clean! i think ci had both this year. who's gonna bring it next year?

I have a feeling Narbonne is gonna come back and shock the hell out of everyone next year.. my bet goes to narbonne small flags for 2010

Anonymous said...

i think it'll be poly or bishop.. Poly in my opinion has always been a strong team and considering that they only one returnee this year and next year should be a better year with more girls returning.

Bishop has always been a top contender, but there has always been that complexity factor in their routine that just stops them from being on top. Their routine's complexity reminded me of CI's in 2008, which was all over the place
let's hope that next year, they'll be cleaner.

Just because narbonne doesn't look like the other pep flag teams such as channel carson or bishop... doesn't make them borning.. narbonne is a technical team.. meaning tricks twirls and foot work... what maybe they need a lil more visuals but that doesn't make them boring.. they have the hardest tricks out there unlike carson and bishop.. hell even channel

Anonymous said...

nah on the real C I has some of the hardest tricks and best visuals narbonne has potential but they are very smooth throughout their routine they seem to be stuck in the early 2000's were as ci carson and bishop are movin forward with more innovative material ..

narbonne does have really nice full twirling i must say!

channel, narbonne, bishop, carson, glendora, and long beach will always be the teams other teams will look up to. without them, no other pep flag team will survive.

Anonymous said...

i dont care if you disagree but glendora brought this whole "cheer" atmosphere where you can see teams developing from them.

i don't know if this is the case but channel added new elements in the pep flag world such as the bow and arrow, their 2008 mount of the leg lifts, and their school chant in the beginning of their mix as well as their chant in the middle of their routine to showcase what channel islands is all about. many all star cheer teams do that and glendora has been doing that. i love how channel is doing that because they give me goosebumps. as well as carson, their voiceover effects and sound effects or when they yell "YEAH" also like bishop... etc.

Anonymous said...

2000s? hahaha!!! more like narbonnes been stuck since the 1990s!! yeah sure they are "technical" and have pretty full twirls... but they have in no way pushed the envelope like Carson, CI & Bishop have these last few years!!! I hate to say it, but LBP is the new Narbonne!

Anonymous said...

poly is the new narbonne?? hahah that will never happen poly only has ONE national title under there belt... they no where near narbonne.. again i say you never know what narbonne could bring... next year is a WHOLE NEW year....

Anonymous said...

UMM when was Narbonne's last USA win? back in '96 over a DECADE ago! that was back when pep flags was hardly as big as it is now, when many teams haven't even existed. you make it seem like poly's usa championship didn't count for anything, yet they have consistently been placing top five since 2005. yes I do admit narbonne has the best twirls techncally as they are all in unison, but poly, ci, carson, and bishop have much harder tricks than they do. face it, the top schools are changing. it's not ci, carson, and narbonne fighting for the top three spots; morse, bishop, and poly are slowly being added to the list shunning narbonne

Anonymous said...

wtf? first off... narbonne's last usa title was 1999, not 1996. And second... the reason why everyone calls them technical is because thier tricks are hard and very intricate. Sure maybe narbonne won titles when pep flags hardly existed, but know this... BECAUSE OF CHANNEL ISLANDS, NARBONNE & CARSON PEP FLAGS IS NOW RECOGNIZED, APPRECIATED AND EXISTS AS A SPORT. and lastly, going back on the whole narbonne tradition... to my knowledge, narbonne doesnt have a coach. looking at alot of the teams if they dont *currently have a coach... they did at one point or another. (with the exception of morse)narbonne, they make up thier own shit... maybe things would be different if they did have a coach. their doing pretty well without one though wouldn't you think?

Anonymous said...

AGREED!

Although Carson Bishop and CI are "innovative" Narbonne has kept true to their twirling style and haven't jumped on any bandwagon.
Their twirling is timeless and shall forever remain classic.

WORK IT LADIES!

Yall are getting way too excited over Narbonne just coz they all of a sudden had a decent routine and beat carson at the LAST COMP and its ms dance...the comp no one really cares about!! narbonne has a long way to come up.. i agree that they are stuck in the past and they need to step their game up if theyre lookin for another NATL title. But id like to see the day they do. this year was a bitty step up but NOT ENOUGH. concerning next yr, I really think carson is out of ideas and bishop is FULL of them. i think bishop is something to look out for...if they didnt have so many girls and Poly and morse getting up there EACH YEAR... as for channel islands, if they were so "great" then lets see if they can do it even better next year. they arent that great because they can be beat... 05 sucked 06 sucked 07 was great 08 sucked 09 was badass... 10 failure? well see

Agree....
CI is a great team...n no I'm not from CI...I'm actualy a
Carson alumni of 2005...yes....I actually think CI Is still one of the best teams around pep flag word And I'm guessing in the future also:. I also had to admit Poly and Bishop are great contenders... They have the ability to surpass the pepflag powerhouse teams.. As for my team Carson... I dnt know what happened...they have the skills to be great again...but they have to make new trick like other school.... Their regionals performance was flawless but I think they got a lil too confident with their routine..they should have added more stuff to it and took out some of their signature moves...this is my personal opinion...newer teams are stepping up their game....n older teams are still in their making innovative materials and really showing why they are a team to look up too... Every team has their down moments...but dnt count them out in the future...u never know what will happen...

FYI it's ms DRILL not ms dance
and Narbonne just proved that they should have been at nationals had it not been for a misunderstanding in paperwork as i heard someone said through the grapevine.
Oh trust me with how well Narbonnne came back this year
I'm sure that you will see the day that they get another title at Nationals.
Correct me if I'm worong but Bishop is full of ideas but they have a choreographer something Narbonne doesn't have.
Everything you see in their routine has to come from their minds and for girls who haven't received any real formal training besides the kind they get from alumni and returnees, they're doing pretty well just like someone else commented earlier.

"Narbonne has kept true to their twirling style and haven't jumped on any bandwagon.
Their twirling is timeless and shall forever remain classic."

i dont mean to bash on narbonne or whoever said that but when it comes down to perfroming on the floor do judges care about who uses coaches or choreographers or alumni or the team themselves? no. they want to be entertained and they want to be "wowed." narbonne needs the WOW as do many other teams that are still "classic" i really think that if narbonne can innovate with the technique and cleanliness they do have then they have plenty of potential

omg channels 3 flag has some insane tricks!

they really implemented their 3 flag with their flag change. i'm glad they went back to the older traditional design and used bolder blue and yellow

this is like 2007 part 2.

this is the best nondrop performance this season

imo, if all teams were at Nat'ls this is how it would have went down for doubles:

Channel
Bishop
Carson
Poly
Morse
Narbonne

Whoever posted that list of placings if all the teams went to nationals, i think that's a bunch of shit to have narbonne at the bottom.. um they beat carson at miss dance/ drill... and if I'm not mistaken carson took 3rd in doubles with bishop taking 2nd... I'm sorry but if narbonne whould of went to nationals and performed they way they did ( or better ) than they did at miss drill.. I'm sure they would of taken at least 2nd place... and for the comment about poly has been in the top five ... um narbonne has always been in the top three when they competed at nationals.. with the excecption of 08.

narbonne 2nd? Hahahahaahha

whoever posted that list of placings, basically it was the nationals outcome with morse and narbonne tacked on to 5th and 6th. duh! we cant say they wouldve couldve shouldve. we'll never know.

narbonne top 3? maybe in the 90's but certainly not in this decade.

2009 - no show
2008 - didnt even qualify for top 6 finalists
2007 - 2nd
2006 - no show
2005 - no show
2004 - 3rd
2003 - 6th
2002 - 2nd
2001 - 4th?
2000 - 3rd?

Anonymous said...

well, dip shit, you can't "always" be in the top 3 "with the exception of"...

What if, what if, what if!!! This is crap, those who actually showed some guts went to nationals and all of the scaredy cats didn't go at all. I know, I know, Morse would have only gone if... and Narboone would have gone if... ENOUGH EXCUSES! Your guy's team didn't go and now you think you have the right to place your teams in the finals list IF they would have gone. Well news flash THEY DIDN"T GO! So leave the standings where they are and accept that you guys didn't place and MOVE ON!!!
