CRYSTAL LAKE THUNDER IS A 2019 WGI FINALIST !
April 12, 2019
The Crystal Lake Thunder moved into the rarefied air of Finals competition at 2019 WGI in Dayton, April 12, 2019. Their show "Weight" was extremely well received by the audience as they portrayed how the stresses and "Weight" of life can be too much for one person, but sharing that weight with others can bring relief.
In their 3 years of existence, the Thunder have moved up consistently, culminating in this 2019 Finalist position. But even more important that their placement, they created a special bond with each other as they worked together toward a common goal.
