Start your engines Broncos Fans!
Hello Broncos Country. My name is Tara and I am thrilled to be back for my third season as a DBC. I can’t wait to get back on the field to cheer on our beloved Broncos. The off season has been busy for the DBC. We have shot our 2012 Calendar, learned a ton of new dance material, and have gotten to know our 8 talented new rookies (Check out our Roster to learn all about the 2012 DBC).
This year marks the third annual Keeping Kids on Track event that we put on for our Calendar Release party. We team up with The Track at Centennial and race go carts to raise money to keep underprivileged kids on the right track in life. Get it “race” and “track”. We are pretty clever don’t you think?! All proceeds from the event benefit Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and the Tennyson Center. Check out the website for more details. www.keepingkidsontrack.org
The go carts at The Track are the real deal, not like the ones you race at the amusement park. They can reach speeds up to 60 miles per hour and are a ton of fun! I was the fastest DBC at the event last year. It is a title that I am proud of and I slip it into everyday conversation as often as possible. “Yes, may I have the dressing on the side, I was the fastest DBC at the Keeping Kids on Track Calendar release Party in 2010 with a track time of one minute four seconds, and may I please have my salad before my meal.” Exedra, exedra.
We have been practicing at the Track two days a week to increase our speeds from last year. It has been awesome to see my teammates practicing their race skills, gain speed, and begin to challenge each other and our instructors. It gets pretty competitive on the race track and I will have my work cut out for me this year when I try and defend my title.
I hope that y’all will buy tickets and come out to our event on August 19th. We would really appreciate your support and the DBC never shy away from some friendly competition. If you think you’re faster than a Broncos Cheerleader, come out and prove it!
