It was SO windy in Fresno!
It was hard for the Guard to warm up, the flags were blowing so hard. The girls had a really hard time controlling them, we weren't sure if they would be able to perform. The good thing though was that everyone had the same disadvantage. The bad thing was is that it compromised their show a bit. Once we got into the stadium it seemed to be a bit less windy. Boy, was it a challenge for them all!
Emily had an accident, her flag flew up and the wind caught it forcing it down so hard on her forehead. She got a bruise and bump right away, not much sends her into tears but this really hurt her. I got her some ice which helped, then she got right back into it.
The flags are weighted and can be a real weapon especially when carried by the wind.
She said " I got an instant headache Mom!"
