EA DOLCE VI A PRESENTS & Rick Roberts Tennessee Clogging Classic SATURDAY, May 2nd 9 PM On March 27.2009. Preston Allison traveled to Bristol. TN. to compete as an amateur in the 2009 Bristol. TN. Classic Clogging Competition. During the first evening of the event. each contestant danced to a choreo'- graphed presentation. Preston made a good showing by placing fifth in his division. On Saturday's competition, each participant was given the opportunity to show their clogging ability in the freestyle form of the dance, in which the music was determined by the judges, and each contestant was able to "show their stuff." Once again, Preston had a great performance and did very well by placing second in his division. No doubt the judges and audience en- joyed his clogging, because the high- light of the evening came when he was designated as the 2009 Bristol TN., Clogging Classic Amateur Male. Preston made the trip with his great- grandparents. Asa and Carolynn Keith, of Sand Fork and his older sister and supporter, Lasa Mencer. Preston is the son of Malcolm and Lurenda Allison, also of Sand Fork and the Grandson of Bonnie Allison. of Tanner. Preston is a self-taught clogger, starting atthe age of seven. Preston and the entire family would like to thank the many supporters in Gilmer county, as well as surrounding coun- ties for giving him the opportunity to perform at many of their local events and family functions. The principal mark of genius is not perfection but original- ity, the opening of new frontiers. --Arthur Koestler La Dolce Vita Cafe Dinner Served 4th & Main Sts., Sutton WV from 5-10 pm for reservations, phon 304-765-3334 an's Thursday, April 30, 2009 4:30 p.m. until : !
