Elm Grove Memorial Day Parade – 5/29
Monday, May 29th – NO Evening practice or AM open Gym…
ALL Teams: Gold Bugs 1& 2, Fast Track, Xcel, T&T, Boys Team, Girls Team
Wildcard Gymnastics will be participating in the Elm Grove Memorial Day parade on Monday, May 30th. Gymnasts on any level of team (Boys’, Girls’, Xcel or Tumbling & Trampoline), Fast Track or Gold Bugs are invited to participate. Parents or siblings may participate in the parade, but must be wearing a Wildcard T-Shirt or jacket. We will not have any t-shirts at the start of the parade. Parents and siblings are also not allowed to march with strollers during the parade. We will need about 4-6 parents to carry the banner and pass out brochures. Please talk to Amy ahead of time to reserve your spot.
The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. Gymnasts need to report to Elm Grove Village Park (13600 Juneau Blvd.) by 9:30 a.m. The drop off is located at the footbridge on Legion Drive (there will be a DROP OFF HERE sign). Gymnasts will need to be dropped and will need to walk to our starting location (ask when you get there). The parade concludes at the corner of Wall Street and Elm Street at The Grove Shopping Center (Sendiks Food Market). We ask that parents park there and promptly pick up gymnasts by the bank on Wall & Elm Street (I believe it is a BMO Harris). Amy’s cell is: 414-303-5195. Amy will wait to escort any gymnasts at 9:00 a.m. Gymnasts arriving later should meet us at the starting location.
Gymnasts should come prepared wearing a purple leotard or our former exhibition leotard. If your child does not have any of these leotards, a Wildcard Gymnastics t-shirt is sufficient. Gymnasts should wear athletic shoes and socks (no sandals) and should wear stretch gloves for tumbling. Also, please bring water (preferably half of a squeeze bottle that has been frozen).
If we have inclement weather, which is possible, we will allow gymnasts to march in their warm-up jacket and black pants/leggings/capris. If it is raining, we will likely not tumble but bring a clear plastic garbage bag if it is raining, because we will still march. Don’t forget sunscreen if it sunny!
