White Knight's Des Moines Trip

Post  White Knight on Fri Jan 30, 2009 5:54 pm

All right, I thought I might post some pics from my trip to Des Moines. I don't know if this is the right place to put these, BUT they all have to do with Shawn so.....enjoy.

First one is Chow's Gym:



This was a banner that was on the side of the Iowa Hall of Pride/Wells Fargo Arena, it's all one big complex:



Shawn at the start of the Gymnastics show:



Shawn on the beam. She had fallen off during the show, but fit it into her routine:



Shawn during the intermission, waiting for her turn. It was funny because the little girl next to her was standing at the other end of the mat, in Shawn's way and Shawn keep trying to yell to her and waving her hand to the side, you had to be there, but it was cute:



Sorry this one is blurry, but I had to put it up. Shawn kept coming by and waving at someone near us that she knew, I kept thinking she was waving at me, hehe:



Shawn introducing one of the local gymnasts:



Shawn waving goodbye at the end of the show:



Finally, Shawn at the meet and greet:

If you were there, Scrawney, and able to drive, COULD you stop yourself going to see Shawn's house?

We were there for the weekend. The show was on Friday, so we spent the rest of the weekend just checking stuff out (and no I did not drive by Shawn's house, though it was probably within about a mile of our hotel, so we drove by the neighborhood everytime we went anywhere, but only cause we had to, I promise Very Happy ) I actually thought it was a pretty cool town and the show was great. A lot of people kept going up to Shawn during breaks in the show and asking for an autograph, but she kept saying she couldn't.......so I was glad we had the meet and greet passes. Chow was there hanging out around the stage and taking pictures with people, that is one thing I should have got, but didn't....oh well, there is always next time! Wink

Why is Shawn not allowed to give autographs? I'd have thought it was up to her?

I'm not sure, but a few people near us went up to her and I heard hear say she wasn't allowed to.

I am assuming the show didn't want her to, because if she started it may not stop.

Yeah that seems most likely and probably they wanted to make the meet and greet extra special. Next time you HAVE to go and speak to Chow Very Happy

Maybe it was because of the backstage passes. If you could just walk up to Shawn and get a picture and autograph, there's not point on paying the extra money to meet her backstage.

Well you can say it, it's just.. the threads were going no where. I can edit it if I find you should say it haha.

Don't take the thread locking personally, It's just because I don't want people to start talking about whatever.

It seems the kind of thing that the tour would control, Shawn doesn't seem the type to turn down autographs and the show would probably get some complaints from people who bought meet and greet tickets when they could of got it for free and they'd probably lose money on signed merchandise too
