  1. I’m crossing fingers you’ll be able to post a pic of the Seattle Chinese Community Girls. Their uniforms were exceptional! And what a tight routine. We particularly enjoyed the drums on the dragon cart.

  2. MM – they’re definitely part of the plan. We publish video of them just about every year (they also put on quite a show at the Seattle Chinese Garden dedication here in West Seattle a couple months ago and we got that all on video too – will add a link later) … they are SO impressive … TR

  3. Sustainable West Seattle is a lot of fun to work with. The Trikeceratops definitely displays that well. The whole concept of this out reach is to get more of West Seattle involved with our “Do It Yourself” choice of improving lifestyles, health, food quality(security)and the quality of life for future generations.
