Well, what a weekend that was…. Can’t believe ISTO 2017 is actually over! 😥 The fact that ISTO is over means that study week and exams are fast approaching!!!
SO, we arrived up to Dublin on Thursday evening after a long bus ride. Arrived in our accommodation, got ready and started the weekend off with a BANG with the “Rubix Cube” social. Great way to start the weekend, make new friends and start the competition buzz!!
Warm-ups starting at 2pm in DCU was very exciting with Novice men and ladies competing throughout the day followed by a FANTASTIC social to continue the buzz, CIRCUS NIGHT! Costumes were awesome and I personally feel that UCC were best dressed 😉
Early start on Saturday morning with warm-ups starting at 9am and competition until 4:30pm. Intermediate, Intervanced, Advanced, Elite and Elite Pro all put their best foot forward and competed amazingly!! Casino night followed as the social and what a night it was!!! Everyone got their finest glad rags on and danced the night away!
9am start again Sunday morning after all the gambling done at Casino night! Synchro, Tumbling and DMT competitors showed exactly how it was done with crazy skills shown throughout the day!
I would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to CommISTO for hosting such a great competition and an unforgettable weekend.
