Opening Day Parade

The RAGE/BUSC OPENING DAY PARADE 2014 – SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 6

Rage Families,
We want to thank all the members who joined in the fun at the Opening Day Parade. It was an exciting event and a testament to all of you who prepare (and dress up in) the costumes for the parade down Main Street. As usual the competition for the various areas of judging was close and in the end we have multiple “winners” in a number of categories. Rage will meet up soon with the teams listed below for their awards…

Best Team Costume – U6 Dolphins, U8 Mermaids, and U10 Jellybeans
Best Dressed Coach – U6 Dolphins
Best Team Cheer – U8 Mermaids and U8 Magic
Best Banner – U6 Dalmatians and U6 Dominos

We had so many great costumes, banners and cheer – your spirit for the event is greatly appreciated. For all members, we had pictures taken by Studio 1 at the entrance of the parade. You are able to download any of the pictures that you like and we hope you enjoy them.

Thanks again for a wonderful Opening Day Parade,
Mark Hjerpe
