Since I randomly came upon this thread, I thought I should say that Eddie announced in Smooth Rounds last week that the winners of the Amateur Smooth event will have their flights to BYU Nationals paid for as their scholarship. He said that if the event is a semi, that the second place couple will have their flights sponsored as well. We asked if the third place couple would be included if the event made it to a quarterfinal and he was like, "oh maybeeeee I would have to speak with the sponsor...." So guys we should all show up in full force at the 2014 NYDF. This is an incredible chance to have more Northeast Smoothie representation at BYU!!! For anyone else still waffling, it is an awesome comp, and with the American Style Congress now on Sunday, no one has to take off work to attend. Also, since the American Style Congress is a thing that exists in this dimension, it means that Eddie has one of the most amazingly legit Smooth panels I have ever seen in my life. We should really all be competing there if for no other reason than that we can be seen by Toni Redpath/David Hamilton/Jonathan Roberts/Michael Mead/JT Thomas/EVERYONE IN THE WORLD. Lastly, Eddie Simon is a wonderful human being and we should all come and support his event for that reason alone. For the record, I don't work for the NYDF or the Congress... I am just really excited about everything.
