First and foremost, the EPIC Brands would like to thank all those who participated in the largest Reach the Beach Rec, School, and Dance Nationals to date. This event, hosted at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, MD on February 24-26th, 2012 was truly a great experience for all who were involved.

Not only was there a brand new setup on the main stage, a second stage was constucted upstairs for the first time this year. Needless to say, Reach the Beach Nationals outgrew that second room in the first year! Next year, the event producers will have an extra 10,000 square feet of space to work with after the convention center renovations are complete, so the EPIC Brands hopes to utilize that extra space to make the event even bigger and better.

Some great performances took place this past weekend, but EPIC Brands would like to give a special congratulatory shout out to the BIG-TIME winners this weekend:

Tina Colbert, coach of Archbishop Carroll High School who won a BRAND NEW Kia Soul!
