    The seat saving in the arena was infuriating. It was a little better when security got involved - but I was fuming more than once. I knew better and gave myself plenty of time to get situated - long before the stampede of "fans". I understand people have to pee and need some Nachos from time to time - but I'm pretty sure seats were being saved for people that hadn't even left their hotel room yet, or teenagers that were on "teenager" time. I love my kid and I love my friends ~ but whether it's worlds or NCA - if you're not with me when I'm looking for a seat ~ I'm not saving you one. I don't like it when others do it - so I don't do it. Ahhhh - that darned golden rule coming into play - yet again. :)

    Having been out of cheer this last year, I don't know who I give credit for this to......but my MOST FAVORITE part was how when the 2nd place team was announced, the winners controled themselves until they were ANNOUNCED!!

    I know how hard it is to no be excited when you're CP's team is not 2nd and you know they won, but I have always hated when the excitement for the 2nd place team is taken away by the screams and joy of the winners and their fans.

    Kudos to whoever started this!! I am sooooo happy to see this and I hope it wasn't only a NCA thing!!

    Agreed!! I saw lots of class this weekend. I blocked out the not so classy - everyone has a moment now and again.

    Yeah after my incident with the "lady" I went to the deduction/safety table outside the Arena and said I needed to speak to someone regarding this incident. They pointed out someone quickly who immediately said they woudl start making announcements and I did hear them and see in some cases they did make a difference. I told them the amount of seat saving was ridiculous and that they needed the event people who were keeping the aisles clear to also to deal with the crazy seat saving. I told them the whole incident. Had it just been me that would have been nasty but okay but the fact that she was so nasty to a little girl that just wanted to watch some big kids. I could not believe the ugliness..that is what sent me to find a NCA person.

    Day 2 sitting behind a ton of kids from South Elite. The clapped for everyone, sang along to the music, danced in their seats and made my experience better. Their sportsmanship was great but their joy was infectious. When they left we were sad.

    What I liked my two daughters competing for their last time at NCA and one winning GT Pink and other one getting her paid bid WC Suns. The teams this year really brought their a game wow. All the parents ace,brandon and cali talking and having fun and teasing me everytime I changed my tshirt for my daughters different teams. Can not wait for worlds this year.

    What. I didn't like seats not having cushions for my butt for sitting in them for 12hrs plus. People getting up every 10mins and making you stand up to get thru while teams are on. Last thing no coke cola
    Our farewell tour continues on till we get to worlds

    I felt bad for them in a good way. I thought for sure one of them was going to have a heart attack with every team that was called before them!

    First time we were at NCA, and it is hands down the best competition we have ever been to. I have zero complaints and can't wait to go back!

    Yes that was one of my favorite parts of NCA! They tied in our division and I was standing like right there when it happened. I started crying because it was so sweet and they all looked so happy and I just couldn't handle how sweet it was! I had one girl from another team just look at me like I was crazy... Like how could you not find that sportsmanship beautiful?!

    I will say it a million times over and over again, even when my son isn't cheering anymore, I will be going to Dallas to watch this competition for years to come "God willing". The venue is great. Beyond the seat saving and the small problems, it is by far the best competition I have been to. I haven't been to Cheersport so I can't compare it to that. I have been to Worlds and even the TV coverage from CBSSports of NCA I believe is better than ESPN's coverage of Worlds. Getting to watch teams that I don't normally get to see throughout the year live on all levels is crazy!! I like it!!
