87 Things That Go Through Your Mind at a Twirling Competition


Twirlers from all over the state are headed to the DFW for the 2014 NBTA Texas State Twirling Championships this weekend! While we wish everyone the safest of travels and good luck, we also had to have a little bit of fun with this post 🙂 If you have ever been to a twirling competition, you have probably had some pretty interesting thoughts go through your mind throughout the day. Do any of these look familiar?

  1. It is way to early for this.
  2. Where is my Red Bull?
  3. Ok found it, great… now let’s do this.
  4. First things first, hair.
  5. Wheres my mom?
  6. Oh she just came back to the room from breakfast downstairs.
  7. Hotel breakfast food. Gross.
  8. Wait, how is she already dressed and ready to go?
  9. I wonder if she even slept last night…
