CARNAVAL LEO

screen-shot-2017-01-20-at-11-55-47-am

We have a limited number of carnival leo’s left for sale. They are $30 in the pro-shop.These leos are for fun and can be worn at the Carnaval Classic but are not required. The ‘Carnaval Classic’ Leos cannot be worn in any other meets.  If your child chooses not to wear it, then they should wear their long sleeve competition leotard. If they do not have a long sleeve leo the black Wildcard leo with the turquoise trim is fine.

VOLUNTEERING

Each family should plan on having at least one adult represent their family for set-up on Friday night AND take-down Sunday morning. Additionally, we would like each family to fill at least one spot on Saturday. If you would like to help out more than that feel free to sign up for more. There are several spots where gymnasts can help out too! Home meets are always fun to volunteer at!

If for some reason your family cannot help at all there is a $50 buy out option.  Please sign up before Friday, February 9th or your family will be assigned spots.

To sign-up just follow this link:

CONCESSIONS BUY-IN

There will be a $25 buy in for  Team Gymnasts to cover the cost of concessions. ($40 for families with 1 or more gymnast) Wildcard does not collect Booster club fees like other clubs, however, we do collect small buy-in’s a few times a year for our home meets. The buy-in is due by Thursday, February 8th or your account will be run on the Friday, February 9th.


DONATIONS

If you have any mardi gras beads that you no longer use please consider donating them to Wildcard. There will be a box at the front desk where we will collect them. Thank you in advance!

One final pre-meet reminder. If you are looking to kill time between now and the meet feel free to stop by the front desk to see if there are any projects you can help out with!

If you missed the blog post about warm-ups- the jackets were sent but in the wrong style and color – so we are speedily and diligently working with the company to fix the error.  We have done our best to communicate to all the parents and gymnasts, particularly at practices and via the blog.  Please understand, this is NOT Wildcard’s fault and we are just as upset as you are.  Frustrations aside, know that this WILL be fixed.  We will keep you posted on any updates.

Please email Amy if you have any other questions:  amyg@wildcard-gymnastics.com

Happy 2018…warm-up news…

Well, it’s a great start to 2018.  Thanks to all that rang in the New Year at the Overnight!  If you didn’t come, you are welcome to next year!  It was a lot of fun.

I’ve got quite a few sign ups for the upcoming meets.  We are doing a buy one/get one for the Wildcard Meet (If you register for the Carnaval Classic – we will allow your gymnast to compete BOTH the AAU session and the USAG session – yay for extra experience!)  So far, it looks as if it will all be hosted on Saturday with the USAG session first, then the AAU session in the afternoon (all pending judges’ approval).  If you haven’t signed up for the other AAU Meets  – please do so ASAP.  Only the payments for the first couple meets needs to be in by February.  I do not need payments for State/Regionals/Nationals yet!

Now the warm-up predicament:  Everything was re-ordered and the company just finished sending them again this past weekend, however, they over-corrected and they are TOO large.  I understand the frustration, because believe me, I am feeling it!  I have agreed to work with them one more time to figure this whole thing out and we will be receiving some sort of credit/incentive from the company.  They are a very small company and extremely upset that this happened in the first place and are embarrassed that when it was sent to their supplier, it was messed up again.  They are not out to sabotage us or cheat us at all.  They are doing what ever they can to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.

I am in communication with the company and will let everyone know as soon as I have further information.  No monies will be returned at this point because technically, the garments are in production and WE WILL be receiving what you ordered in the correct sizes.  The ones the kids have now are only to tide us over until we receive the corrected ones.  I have also been in contact with him about the pilling on the pants/tanks/shorts.  They are trying to figure out the best way to remedy that as well.  I have complete faith that this will all turn out for the best!
Thanks,
If you have further questions, let me know.
AMY
