2012 KCrew Photo Day

While spring training has just begun, we on KCrew also prepare before the season starts too. We just recently had our annual Photo Day at the stadium. All eighteen of us gathered (for the first time) to take pictures, video clips, and different fun shots. Yes, I did say eighteen of us! We welcome the rookies: Lauren Rob, Heather, Paige, Lauren Rog, Alexandra, Kayla, Alex, Chloe, Rachel, and Kelsey. We are all looking forward to them joining us as this exciting season approaches.

On Photo Day we were split up into three groups and rotated to three different stations. The first station was individual photos. We took different full length shots for our poster (be watching for that at the games) and also used props. The props included a baseball, glove, bat, signs, and sombrero. Those pictures were fun because it was a chance for us to really be ourselves.
Next we rotated to the “green screen.” There we did a variety of things you may see throughout the season on CrownVision. Those include reciting the Code of Conduct, thanking all of you; our fans, the infamous slow clap, and other surprises.
Finally, we did our video shoot. This was a chance for us to answer silly questions about ourselves. You will be surprised at what questions we were asked, so you will just have to watch for those videos during the games or even online to find out.
We are all very excited for the season to begin but before that can happen, we have more work to do. Be on the lookout for another blog about our upcoming dance practices!

Royals FanFest Heats Up Baseball Fever

Royals fans never cease to amaze me. It can be 105 in July or -5 in January, they still have huge hearts for their team. It was the dead of winter with a solid foot of snow on the ground a couple weeks ago and Royal’s fans still came to support our beloved baseball team.  January 20-22 was an event-filled weekend, jam packed with autograph signings, giveaways, player interviews, and plenty of games to go around.

DSCN0255.JPGFanFest is a wonderful opportunity for fans to meet the players in a more personal setting. It provides a chance for young kids to meet their idols and gain autographs to store in their collection. It allows for the die hard Royals fans to meet and greet with new additions to the roster. And for some, like me, it gives us the chance to become even more excited about the much anticipated baseball season.

Sporting our royal blue shorts and white baseball jerseys for the weekend, it was a great getaway from this dreadful weather.  We all got to watch so many talented drum lines, dance teams, and acrobatic groups. It is amazing the talent that surrounds us in Kansas City. FanFest is a great opportunity for these talents to shine.

Along with the opportunity to see some of our favorite players again, it gave us, the KCrew, a chance to see each other again and hang out with the new girls. DSCN0239.JPGThis year there are 11 veterans and 5 rookies. With an 81 game schedule, we all become like sisters. During the summer, I see these girls more than I see my own family. We all have a great time together and get along so well. Come October, it is a bittersweet ending to the season. Thankfully, FanFest acts as a family reunion for us. I cannot wait to spend the summer with all these lovely ladies.

In addition to seeing the KCrew girls, it was great to see so many familiar faces at FanFest. I love seeing our season ticket holders wearing their hats filled with collectible pins and I love meeting so many new faces who are as excited for the season as we are.

While FanFest is a great weekend, it is quite a teaser for baseball season. I love my college football and basketball, but I could really go for some baseball under the bright lights. See you all in 50 days (and counting)!! 

Go Royals!

On-Air for KCrew Auditions

There are many cool opportunities that come along with being a part of the KCrew. One of the most recent ones was being able to go live on Hot 103 Jamz with host Sean Tyler. Hot 103 Jamz is a local radio station broadcasted live to millions of people throughout the Kansas City area. Sandy, Megan and I had the amazing opportunity to promote walk ups for the 2011 KCrew auditions.

Before the interview I was very nervous. Who knew talking on the radio would be more nerve wracking than doing camera interviews at Royals games? Maybe it was the thought that it would be broadcasted live to thousands of drivers on their way home from work! But as soon as we got to the station, we were greeted by smiling faces that put our nerves at ease.

One of the first people we met was Rich McCauley. He is the Marketing and Promotions director for Carter Broadcast Group, Inc. He escorted us to the room where our interview would take place. At that time he spoke to us about the history of the Carter Broadcast Group and how they had just had their 60th year anniversary and are still going strong. The next person we met was Sean Tyler himself! I was more familiar with his voice than his face. It’s very interesting seeing someone after listening to them for so long. There he briefed us on what questions he would be asking us and reassured us that everything would go fine.

After about 10 minutes, we were on air. We talked about what KCrew does, how fun it is, and how people could join by coming to the audition the next day. It was over so fast. Our nervous energy had paid off and we got the job done!

Thanks KPRS for stepping up and supporting the KCrew!
