We are brimming with excitement for the new season but we cannot quite move on without appreciating the experience of the previous one. Today we have a new direction and a master plan for success but we might not have felt this need to increase our expectations and hopes for the future of this team, were it not for Season 11/12.
A special shout out to Raj and Zhang Mei, our previous Captain and Vice-Captain respectively, for their dedication and perseverance in ensuring the team gave a good performance despite having to rebuild a new team almost from scratch. At the pace that we’re going at, it may seem like we’ve forgotten the contributions of our previous committee but I just want to say that it has been a pleasure being in the same team as you and sharing your vision to be the best that we can be.
Zhang Mei – You are what resilience is about. Your story, having been injured twice just before the competition for the last two years and then to recover and make a comeback like how you did at SNCC 2012… It was like in the movies, simply inspiring. Just like you, we never gave up 🙂
Raj – it was a challenge for you because it was only your second year in Denvers and you did not have the luxury of a seasoned team of performers. Nevertheless, you stepped up, brought us all together and made us believe that we have what it takes to go to SNCC and put up a performance worthy of the reputation of our team. Which we did! Thanks lah dae, now go for your surgery and come back stronger than ever for the coming seasons! 😀
Every experience is vital to our plans for this year and I would like to take this opportunity to present to you a mini photo journal which was collated from a few key events, as a tribute to season 11/12.
Singa Cheer Cheer Cheer
Imagine this, going around Singapore, from place to place in a specially chartered bus, from morning to evening and taking lots of pictures as we stun the public with our stunts ( Hows my word play there? 😛 )
We must have taken a few hundred pictures but here’s just a few of the more memorable ones :
Christmas Eve Stunting
Doing stunts in the middle of Orchard on Christmas Eve? Been there done that. As usual we provided a free thrill for the shopping crowd on crowded Christmas Eve afternoon. Part of Denvers tradition over the years 🙂
As you have seen thus far, we do have a life 🙂
And now for the penultimate collection from the pictures, those taken at the Singapore National Cheerleading Competition 2012.
The finale for this post has to be from Southeast Asian Cheerleading Open 2012, where although we did not compete, a very special event took place. The occasion turned out to be the perfect marriage proposal by our Coach Jimmy to Wei Wei! Thank you for giving us a chance to be part of this important milestone in your lives 🙂
And there you have it, season 11/12 in pictures. They say a picture speaks a thousand words but for some of these pictures, you’ll need more than that. Here’s to an even more eventful 2012/13, with the hope for beautiful memories to be etched in our hearts in the year ahead 🙂
