Month: June 2012

The Annual Display 2012 was a great success!

The clubs annual display and awards presentation was held on Saturday 16th June at the Lesiuredrome. It was another fantastic display with gymnasts from the Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday training sessions attending. The display was watched by a large number of spectators made up of parents, family and friends. The raffle had lots of fabulous donations from everyone plus the following local companies very kindly donated –

Ace Bouncy Castles, Boots The Chemist, Estetica Beauty Care, Exit Hair Crew, Glamoureyes Beautique, Huntershill Coffee Shop, Milano Pro Sport and The Zone

With displays from the tumble gymnasts, various group sets and the gymnasts individual pair & trio sets the crowd was thoroughly entertained.

Congratulations to all the gymnasts on making this a fabulous day and thanks to all the parents, family and friends, who bought tickets, donated prizes and purchased tickets for the raffle. This is one of the main fundraising events for the club and all your support is greatly appreciated.

The committee would also like to thank all the coaches and all the helpers.
