Step one was finding 45 amazing girls to make up the 2007 Blue Thunder Cheerleaders for the Toronto Argonauts, and step two was accomplished this past weekend by getting those 45 girls ready for the task!

The 2007 Blue Thunder Cheerleaders spent an intensive weekend at the Renaissance Hotel at Rogers Centre for Cheerleader Boot Camp, where they learned what it means to be a member of the team. The program began with a look at the history of Argonauts cheerleaders led by members of the 1978 team including Catherine Bridgman and a former Miss Argo Gaye MacDonald. The ladies were given an overview of how the front office of the Toronto Argonauts works, with topics ranging from events to marketing to sponsorship to ticketing and gameday.

After a delicious dinner at Arriba, the cheerleaders spent some quality time together at C-Lounge for a night of dancing and bonding.

Day Two began with some etiquette training from coach Louise Fox. The ladies then participated in a few team building exercises to bring the team even closer. The cheerleaders were then fitted for their 2007 uniforms and received goodies from Flare Magazine, Universal Music, Flow 93.5 and Heys Luggage.

Next stop – on the field for the pre-season game on June 9!!!
