Cir­cuit proves no chal­lenge

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

THE Moss­man and Dis­trict Gym­nas­tics Club held its an­nual cir­cuit chal­lenge and Gold Sil­ver Bronze com­pe­ti­tion re­cently at the Moss­man In­door Sports Cen­tre.

Seventy-eight gym­nasts at­tended the all-day event, sup­ported by an en­thu­si­as­tic team of coaches, gym com­mit­tee, vol­un­teers and par­ents who all con­trib­uted to mak­ing the day a huge suc­cess.

Club sec­re­tary Sharon Miller said it was great to see so many happy gym­nasts and happy par­ents too.

“Ev­ery­one had a great time and it was good to see so much sup­port at our club’s largest event and fundraiser for the year,” she said.

The cir­cuit chal­lenge in the morn­ing proved to be a mas­sive hit.

Kids pro­gressed through a va­ri­ety of sta­tions start­ing with the var­i­ous ap­pa­ra­tus in the gym­na­sium and spread­ing out to an ob­sta­cle course of in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in the main floor area of the sports cen­tre, with 40 dif­fer­ent skills to be ex­pe­ri­enced.

Each par­tic­i­pant re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate, club wa­ter bot­tle and wal­let for their ef­forts. The vol­un­teer gym­nasts who guided them through the sta­tions also re­ceived a sur­prise cer­tifi­cate and printed club T-shirt.

Af­ter a suc­cu­lent sausage siz­zle to feed the hun­gry masses, a sec­ond con­tin­gent of gym­nasts were put through their paces as the Gold Sil­ver Bronze com­pe­ti­tion kicked off in the af­ter­noon.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Erin Frizelle said it was great to be able to host the much- needed com­pe­ti­tion.

“Our neigh­bour­ing clubs at Ma­reeba and Ather­ton have not been able to host their usual In­vi­ta­tional events this year,” she said.

“Hav­ing this comp pro­vided valu­able ex­pe­ri­ence for our lo­cal gym­nasts.”

All par­tic­i­pants were awarded ei­ther a gold, sil­ver or bronze cer­tifi­cate along with a club logo gym bag and wal­let.

Moss­man Gym­nas­tics is now pre­par­ing for an im­pres­sive dis­play at the Ju­lat­ten Spring Fair in Septem­ber as well as the Macca Team Chal­lenge at Bar­ron Val­ley Gym­nas­tics Club.

The club ac­cepts new mem­bers at any time.
