Sweet! Congrats. Though I find finishing dead ass last in the first competition can be a good thing. Not sure why it is good, but we did finish DAL in our first event :becky:.

Congrads we had our 1st comp last Sept. I would say sit down and make as many notes as you can now I have started to look over my notes getting ready for our 1st comp and I found so helpful as I don't remember all the little details

Congrats on your first contest! I strongly agree with the comment above about taking notes. Write down what you did well, what your weaknesses were, and anything you would change. Then go back through your timeline, and make the changes you might need now, don't wait, do it while still fresh in your mind. A little work right after the contest will help you on the next one.

Agreed with above, make notes, things to change, things that went well, items needed next time, items not needed, process changes, etc. I always keep a pad and pen handy, as I get older, I realize I need more notes to keep my mind straight.
Great start and good luck in the future.
