Fall and "Early Bird" on the Horizon!!by Pat Grant on 10/11/14
It seems that everything revolves around the weather! We in the south can probably attribute that mind-set to the agrarian roots most native families share! Perhaps even many generations back! Late summer and early fall have rapidly expired! I am just waiting for the elusive "cool snap" to show up again! This is the winding down of my busiest time of the year! Thankfully, most of our Rushbiddies' girls have gotten placed. If they did not find their "spot" in formal recruitment, it seems that COB (continuous open bidding) has been a great option! Now they are all focused on football and all the campus activities involved! What a great time in their lives!!
I know here in the south everyone is enjoying their SEC football! What a conference! I specifically plan my one and only fall "Early Bird" workshop to not conflict with football! After all, we are located in the deep South and the heart of the SEC. So many young ladies have come to southern schools to enjoy the traditions, the excitement, and the loyal fan-base so evident in the SEC! I completely understand the attraction!
I am looking forward tomorrow's workshop! I always love meeting new Moms and daughters! They come so eager to get started with their recruitment prep and process! And in some cases, a bit anxious for the unknown! It is a wonderful chance to inform and build up the sweet young hearts of these beautiful young ladies! Plus help the endearing Moms acquire the tools they will both need to navigate the recruitment process! It is never too soon to start!
The next "Open" group workshop will be our EXTREME Workshop in spring 2015! More about that later! In the mean time, I smile thinking about tomorrow!
