Now term is underway we turn our attention to our Display on Saturday 26th November. Entry forms are attached, please let us know if you can take part as soon as possible so that choreography can be tailored and training can get underway. Last year’s was a great success with nearly all of our gymnasts taking part. Any money raised during this event will be spent on new equipment for the club. We hope to raise enough to purchase a booster block or a folding wedge.
WHAT TO WEAR
All gymnasts who are taking part should arrive by 9.30am on 26th November. They should wear their black club leotard and have hair secured firmly in a short pony tail / bunches or a bun for longer hair. No loose strands and long fringes please. Black scrunchies should be worn around the bun. Check with your coach if you are unsure about your child’s hair or what clips to use in a bun. Boys should wear black club leotards and shorts.
FOOD & DRINK
It is a long morning, and we understand that gymnasts use a lot of energy which needs to be replaced; please therefore ensure your child brings a drink of water or fruit juice and a small healthy snack (such as fruit & vegetables or a cereal bar) to eat during the short break between the rehearsal and the performance.
TIMES & TICKETS
We plan for the display to start promptly at 12.30pm and run until 1.30pm. Family and friends are warmly invited to attend and should arrive from 12.15pm. Adults will cost £1.00 each payable in advance or £1.50 on the door. All children (under 16) are free.
At the end of the display, we will be having a variety of stalls for gymnasts and their parents to browse after the display has finished. These include new and second hand leotards, our tuck shop with sweets at pocket money prices, raffle and tombola, as well as face painting and homemade cakes & biscuits.
To boost our fundraising efforts we are asking for donations for our raffle and tombola stalls. After half term we will be grateful to receive your donations, such as; bottles of wine or spirits, bubble bath and other toiletries, chocolates and tins of biscuits, and jars of jam and chutney.
We would be delighted if you could support the club by providing us with some of your delicious cakes and cookies to serve and sell on the day. We will be encouraging the gymnasts to help on the stalls with an adult and of course we would be thrilled if you or any of your friends and family would like to help or just join us at the display. Please use the reply slip below to let us know if you can help by running a stall, clearing away, or just by making cakes.
