Level 3-5 State Meet Spirit Week — For the next two weeks, we will do Spirit Week for the Level 3-5 and Level 2 State Meets. Other level gymnasts (boys, Xcel and Fast Track included) are encouraged to take part in the festivities. The information for Spirit Week this week is below:
Monday — Achieve your goals. Dress like your idol, superstar, movie star or anyone that you think is your hero.
Tuesday — Twinsies. Find a gymnast and dress like them. Matching leotards!
Wednesday — Shine bright like a star. Wear neon or sparkles!
Thursday — Superhero day. Wear capes and super-hero costumes.
Friday — Purple day and formal day. Dress up!
On Friday, practice is from 4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m. We are trying to arrange a team dinner to Noodles on 124th and Capital for the Level 3s, 4s and 5s. Gymnasts must pay for their own dinner, we will transport to Noodles, we will get pre-orders. Pick up will be at Noodles. This is still pending as we have not heard back from Noodles if they will accommodate all of us. We will do the same next week for the Level 2s on Friday night. Friday night practice this week is for the Level 2s as well. They will not practice on Saturday. The dinner at Noodles is just for the Level 3, 4 and 5 gymnasts this week.

Level 2 Spirit Week information will come closer to next week.
Level 2 State Meet Volunteer Opportunities — Please note, there are several spots still available to volunteer for the Level 2 State Meet. Gymnasts are encouraged to volunteer to take the pressure off the Level 2 parents so they may watch their children. The sessions are quick and volunteers will get a meet volunteer shirt (as available). So if your gymnast needs some volunteer hours, this is an easy way to accomplish this. For those families that didn’t volunteer at the Wild Wild West Classic, this is a great opportunity to be a bigger part of the gym.
Of importance is the gym tear down on Thursday night and put back together on Saturday night. We need about 8 strong individuals for that and the process takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Individual Photos — For those gymnasts who have taken individual photos, those are ready. The costs for the photos are $10 per gymnast (if you have two gymnasts, you will need to pay $20) and includes at least three photos plus the team photos. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating you wish to purchase the photos and if you want your account to be charged or if you will pay cash or charge. Once we have your payment, you will be sent a link in which you can download your photos. All gymnasts have a head shot and three staged photos. Also included will be the all-team photo and the respective level photo(s) that your gymnast is in. A copyright release will also be included in the download. At this point, you may do what you wish with the photos, be it upload to Facebook, print photos, print gifts at Snapfish or your photo vendor of choice.
