Years ago, (I'm afraid to declare how many, just in case someone out there reading thinks I am younger than I am) I was a flagtwirler at Timpview High School. I was on the drill team my junior year, but as seniors we all decided to try out for cheerleading and flagtwirling. There were 6 Varsity cheerleaders and 6 Varsity Flagtwirlers.....(no I did not twirl with the band....not that there's anything wrong with that). I decided to try for Flagtwirling because I thought my chances were a little better making it. In those days, you tried out in front of the student body and they voted---that's how you made it. (That is a frightening thought). Well I was pretty sure the skills I learned that year would NEVER come in handy again...I was wrong. This year in our production number the seniors are going to twirl flags....Who Knew?
