“Nationals competition is a highlight of the Prancer year because of it’s beautiful and organized atmosphere. It is one of our favorite team bonding experiences ever! We like to eat at places like Bubba Gumps, Fish Tails and The Rainforest Cafe! Our team pool party and trip to the beach always add to the fun of this competition weekend!”
