Circuit proves no challenge
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.
