October 14 the Kellogg’s Tour of Champions is coming to the BMO Harris Bradley Center. We are able to get additional tickets at the early bird pricing of $50 for the Silver Medal Seats which are the 300 Level seats and originally $69. Please let us know by Tuesday, August 16th if you would like to order tickets! We can charge your credit card on file, take checks or cash! We already have a large group going and would love to double our Wildcard representation at the Tour! This is also the weekend of our home meet, the Wild Wild West Classic. We will be hosting a competition with an awesome Halloween theme. Reminder, there are no classes October 13th, 14th, and 15th because of the meet and meet set-up. Please make up your class with a similar one during the session or ask for an open gym pass. PS- you are invited to come and check out the Wild Wild West Classic. Mention you are a Wildcard Recreational gymnast and we will discount admission to $4 that weekend. It’s pretty exciting to see. More information will be posted on the website and in the gym; but feel free to ask if you have questions. Don’t forget to get your Wildcard Classic Meet Leos ($33 – Due August 30th).
