The Thompson Tumblers gymnastics club held its annual mini-meet on April 14 at the Burntwood School gym. There were a total of 65 gymnasts competing in different age and skill levels on four apparatuses: vault, uneven bars, balance beam and floor. Congratulations to all the participants who ranged in age from three to 16. The mini-meet was our year-end finale to our season and is an exciting showcase of what the gymnasts have learned throughout the season.
The toddler group had their first year of participation and they were a welcome addition to the meet with their adorable performances. Each gymnast who participated received awards for their routines. We would like to thank the Flin Flon gymnasts for challenging our competitive girls in this meet. This was a friendly and fun competition for all. We hope the audience had as much fun as the gymnasts did.
Next season will be very exciting with our club moving into the new facility and our coaches working on developing an even better recreation and competitive program. We look forward to seeing new members join in on the tumbling good times.
The executive board member – president Dawn Lundrigan, vice-president Trish Griffin and fundraising co-ordinator Dori Woytkiw – would like to thank the parents and coaches who assisted them in making this year's mini-meet one of the most successful the club has had in many years. Without the dedicated board members and parents our club could not be as successful as it is.
