Final squad to be announced
May 20 2008

Well ladies and gentlemen and fans! We finally pulled off our cheer finals for 2008 with a fabulous group of young ladies. I just sent out their congratulatory letters moments ago. It is a five-week process that seems to go on forever.

We had two preliminaries, one semifinals, and the final. [Photos here] Involved were interviews, skill sets, dancing ... and you know the rest. Every year as I enter my 14th year of directing just amazes me more and more. My passion for the program and the joy these young ladies bring both skills and on a professional level is overwhelming. I can't wait until tomorrow. It is like "the night before Christmas" then all heck will break out tomorrow, Wednesday, May 21. We will officially be out of the gate running. Our first meeting and outing is May 29 at Bang after the ladies sign their life away in a contract.

Rules are strict and the schedule is tough. We have chosen a lawyer, sales reps, school teachers with their masters, a person earning their PHD most likely this year, interior designer, photographer, and of course a few still in college. To say the least, an amazing educated group with overall talents that will make the year even more rewarding.

On top of it ... brand new uniforms designed by none other than Angela King. Our salon sponsor Perfections is still on board. Mention the Bengals and Kenneth will give you a 25% discount first round! Smart Cover cosmetics is also with us this year giving us makeup, concealor, etc. Of course our limo service, DC is there for us to deliver the beautiful ladies wherever they need to go. Life as a BenGal could not be better.

Jim Stouffer will be shooting our calendar beginning at the end of June. Please contact me, Charlotte Jacobs if you are interested in a sponsorhip.

Thanks for your continued support. You couldn't have supported a more beautiful inside and out group of young ladies.

Go BenGals! Stop by Bang on the 29th of May to say hello.

Come on Chad. We need another proposal!
