LEVEL 3s COME ON FRIDAY THIS WEEK — Due to the schedule for the CSA Fall Challenge on Saturday, the Level 3s will come Friday night from 4:30-8:30 p.m. The Level 2s will not have a third practice this week. Also, compulsories that compete early on Saturday should not be at open gym on Friday night.
VOLUNTEER FOR WILD WILD WEST — The volunteer signups for the Wild Wild West Classic are live and available here:
We will need a boat load of help for this meet. There are 491 competitors and we are running full days on Saturday and Sunday and even a session on Friday night with 10 sessions (so far all three meets we have been to or have schedules for have just four sessions). This is most likely the largest meet of the compulsory season this year. We need your help to put on a great meet, which we always do. The numbers of clubs and gymnasts attending is a testament to our ability to run a great, smooth, unique, on-time, hassle-free meet. The meet is the gym’s biggest fundraiser of the year so anything that we can do to make it absolutely amazing will be beneficial.
Not listed on the volunteer sign ups are award presenters. If your child wants to present awards, please just have them show up at the end of a session. These do not count toward volunteering.
We need every family on team to volunteer for at least one session (preferably two). This includes everyone on all facets of our team, be it Boys, Girls, Xcel and Tumbling & Trampoline. Gymnasts over 12 years old (or on the optional team) can do any job on the floor during the competition. Boys will likely have their pre-season in Sheboygan some time during this weekend, so please keep this mind prior to picking time slots. Again, please remember, we do not have a booster club or charge additional fees, so rely on parent-volunteer help for our meets. Please be sure to sign to help with some aspect of the meet.
Please be cognizant of your child’s competition time when picking spots to volunteer. As usual, if the spots don’t fill, we will have to recruit parents who are here to watch their kids during their session. Also, note that there are no Wildcard gymnasts competing in Session 4 (other gym Level 2s) and Session 5 (Level 5) so that may be a good volunteer position for many people.
CAPTAINS FOR WILD WILD WEST CLASSIC — We have three captain spots available—Front Desk/Admissions, Concessions, Coaches and Judges Room—on a first-come, first-seved basis on the sign-up sheet on Wednesday night’s sign-up. They were put on Wednesday’s sign up, but there are no Wednesday responsibilities. Captains will need to be available for the duration of Thursday night set-up, Friday night competition, Saturday all day and Sunday all day through the conclusion of gym set-up on Sunday night. Captains will receive one month of tution free.
XCEL PLATINUM/DIAMOND & SCHEDULE CHANGE AT WILD WILD WEST — Looks like Xcel Platinum and Diamond was inadvertently left off the Wild Wild West schedule. Hattie, Miley and Anastasia will compete in the Saturday, 8 a.m. session. Also, session 6 (the last session on Saturday night and the first Level 4 session) has had a slight schedule change. It is starting 10 minutes later than originally scheduled due to accommodate a larger Level 5 session. Click here for an updated schedule.
DONATIONS FOR WILD WILD WEST CLASSIC — We will be posting the donation requests for concessions and coaches and judges’ food soon. Again, with a large meet, donation requests will be greater.
SUCCESS WALL ADDITIONS — Our second meet is in the books and we had lots of improvement from meet 1 to meet 2. Taylor W. was our most improved gymnast going up 3.1 points from the first to second meets. In addition, we have more success wall additions. The following gymnasts made the success wall from the Swiss Cup:
Caelyr G. — 9.000 on beam, 9.050 on floor
Jordyn H. — 9.075 on bars, 9.175 on beam
Mariyah L. — 9.025 on beam, 9.000 on floor
