    Well Done Ty. I enjoyed your competition in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico last year and I knew you could easily get to the next level. Keep up the good work. Here’s to possibly medaling in the World Championships 2011 and Olympics 2012. Blessings.

    Donna, keep them all focused. You have been the best BTFA President to date and should be proud of all your athletes achievements.
