ALA 2010: Book Cart Drill Teams!

The Sixth Annual Book Cart Drill Team World Championships, sponsored by Demco, were held on Sunday afternoon during ALA Annual Conference. Seven teams competing for the gold, silver, and bronze Demco carts performed to a packed house (the largest crowd I've seen in the last five years). We were once again entertained by master's of ceremony, Jon Scieszka and Mo Willems; they made no secret that every team was their personal favorite.

And the winners are ... Night of the Living Librarians from my alma mater, The University of Pittsburgh School of Library and Information Sciences!

Demco's You Tube channel features all of the performances, as well as the award ceremony. I was lucky enough to sit with a new librarian from Columbia, South Carolina and a library school student from Kent State University, both viewing the program for the first time. I'm pretty sure they will attend again if given the opportunity to go to ALA Annual in New Orleans next summer.
