Clarion Tournament



Well, the Clarion tournament has come and gone yet again this year. I can't believe it's already over. Quite sad... :(

David and I competed in our duo. We broke to semi finals, and placed 10th place (just two places away from breaking to finals :P) oh well.. it was cool! and at least we qualified for regionals!
Devin and Emma broke to finals (oh yeah!!!) and placed 6th! They are awesome!




I also got 10th place in my DI, not breaking to finals, but breaking to semi's and qualifying for regionals! Which is cool!

Then my persuasive, which was on anxiety and God's sovereignty, I placed 3rd in! That was pretty neat! God is so good!! :-)

In all it was an awesome tournament. I made new friends. Built stronger relationships with old friends. And just had an absolutely amazing time!!!


It was the first time we have ever been able to host a family as well! It was a ton of fun! We had Ted and Katie Bradley stay with us! They are from a family of 10 too! So it was pretty awesome :-) We met Ted a couple years back, but were able to meet his sister! They are way cool, and hopefully we'll see them again sometime soon :D


Every night we stayed up soooo late! It was at least 12:30, if not later, when we would get to bed. And then we'd get up bright and early (many times earlier then 4:30 am.) Crazy I know! But we figured, who wants to go to bed? I mean... at least we got 3-4 hours of sleep every night, but c'mon... it's not like we have tournaments every day? ;)

The highlights of the tournament for me were: Performing our Duo (David, you're an amazing duo partner btw!!! :D). Playing Sighs. Hanging out with all of my friends. And playing Nertz! Fun, fun, fun!!! :-)

::sigh::

Ah. I wish some things never came to an end. Saying goodbye is the worst thing ever! :( Sadness. Really! Oh well, what would life be like if it never moved on? It wouldn't be life.... I guess.... :-) I know, don't you just love how logical I am? :P ;-)

I'm hoping we are going to be able to go to more tournaments this season! We actually might be going to the Idaho one (::crosses fingers and prays!!!!:: =D) haha! And then we most likely will go to regionals..... I think! :-)

But all in all. I had a fabulous time! Made many memories that I shall never forget, spent time with awesome people, and learned so much!! Oh how I love tournaments!!! ahhhhhh! :) :) :) :) :)

Ok. This post is ending up to be very long. And since I don't want to bore you "readers" I'm going to bring it to an end.

Many blessings to you all! Hope your week(end) was good as well!

Your ever faithful blogger,

It's cool to see others that know about Nertz. You should definitely check out http://www.playnertz.com/ , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)
