BANQUET RECAP — For those of you who attended the annual banquet at Country Springs on Sunday, May 31, it was a smashing success. It was one of largest gatherings of gymnasts that we’ve ever had. It was definitely our largest gathering of coaches. We thank all of you for attending and for your support throughout the year.
For those of you who missed it or wish to watch it again, the banquet video and senior tribute will be on line soon (it’s a large file and it takes quite some time to load), so you can see it at your convenience.
