Sydney fills in for Kelli to answer some questions that came from DallasCowboysCheerleaders.com and our official Facebook page.
Kelli McDonald asks “I’m a Native Californian and am fascinated with Southern gentility. Do you require the girls to say “yes, ma’am” or do they just know to answer that way? It sounds so nice but it is so rare in CA…”
I’ve said “yes ma’am” since my rookie year so I think it’s tradition — it’s respectful; we say “yes, ma’am” to each other, to our upper veterans, Kelli, Judy, everyone. I love it and I’m going to keep the tradition going.
James Manak asks “Are the DCC given an opportunity to volunteer for the USO tours overseas or are they chosen (if so, how?)?”
During training camp we’re all given the opportunity to audition for Show Group which is the 12 girls that go overseas on USO Tours. It is a very hard process but an amazing opportunity if selected. I’m actually going on my 3rd USO Tour overseas this Christmas.
Thanks for the questions, make sure you visit all the girls at Planet Tan this Saturday, November 17th at 15 different locations from 11am – 1pm.
