Columbia, SC -- February 11, 2012

Congratulations to our Overall Junior Division Champion! 

Shady Grove represented BRMC Very well at the 2012 Summer Fest Competition in Fountain Inn, SC. The dancers of Shady Grove earned overall Junior Division Championship awards with their traditional line dance.  It that was not enough for them they also won Grand Champion Open Hoedown Awards.   

Many of our dancers were priveleged to be a part of the 2012 Summer Fest competition that was held in Fountain Inn, SC.  We are very appreciative of the good organization and the hospitality that we received at this event.  It was a very well run and enjoyable competition that produced many team, individual and duo/duet winners for our group. 

In addition to the awards won by Shady Grove we had several individual winners in solo competitions.  We received 9 first place awards, 4 second places and 3 third place honors.  Joey McCannon was named Champion Traditional Male for the competition.
