On Sunday 29th November the Notts. School of Gymnastics boys, were joined by an audience of family members and friends of the club, in an exciting afternoon of skill demonstration and fun choreographed group routines.
The skills element showed the progress from starter skills through the full elite in each discipline.
The fun group routines mainly arranged by the coaches, allowed the gymnasts to dress up and combine musical movement with basic gymnastic elements. A head-lining crowd pleaser had to be "leader of the pack". The senior gymnasts found their feminine side, dressed in full drag, "oohhing" and "arhhing" to Jake's manly display of macho skills. ...for me they seemed a little too comfortable in these roles. Rumour has it that Claire Starkey in interested in transferring them to her team.
The event was mainly compèred by Head Coach, Barry Winch who engaged the audience despite a poor quality PA system.
The silent auction, the main live auction, raffle, tombola and refreshments all contributed to a tremendous fundraising running total, for which the club is truly grateful.
Once again thanks to everyone who helped in whatever way to make this event a success.
