CATEGORIES

Women’s Artistic

Ages 18+:

OCP Levels 3-8: http://www.gymnasticsontario.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Section-I-i.ii-Ontario-Competitive-Program-OCP-September-6-20161.pdf

Men’s Artistic

Ages 18+:

Open. If enough competitors register, categories will be created as needed.

MULLIGAN MONEY

For men and women ages 25+. Don’t want to compete against young’uns?!? Don’t worry; back by popular demand is “Mulligan Money!”

Gymnasts ages 25-34 get one Mulligan dollar, 35-44 get two, and 45-54 get three, etc. Not enough? Buy more at the competition for $10. All proceeds go toward Multiple Sclerosis research through MS Canada.

Give these to the judges and they will “look the other way” that time that you had two dismounts on the beam, took an “extra” warm-up vault, “extended” the boundaries of the floor, needed some “help” getting above the rings, etc.

AWARDS

As you are adults, adult awards will be given. Large bottles for 1st-3rd, smaller bottles for 4th-6th.

Awards for younger adults (and those who don’t like bottles) will be available.

****** NO AWARDS CAN BE OPENED IN THE GYM ******

Next year’s competition depends on it.

GYMNAST SWAG

All competitors will receive a t-shirt (assuming you signed up before the deadline). You will also be getting a selection of Clif Bars care of our wonderful sponsor!

A WORD FROM THE MEET DIRECTOR

This is fun.

Not just for you, but for me. I love gymnastics and I love giving YOU the chance to compete. Do it. Compete. You’ll enjoy it. I do my absolute best to provide a fun competition where you can demonstrate to yourself that you still have passion for this sport and every year I see a bunch of adults running around the gym PLAYING gymnastics. It’s awesome.

From arranging judges who probably love the sport more than anyone (thanks, Courtenay!) to t-shirts and gym rental (thanks, Don and Holmes Athletics Canada!) and everything else needed on the day of the event, there is a cast of wonderful people who make this event possible. I couldn’t do it without them and I certainly can’t thank them enough.

I look forward to seeing you at the competition and I really hope you have as much fun as I do each year.

Sincerely,

Eric Laurin

p.s. I’m going to win the Back Tuck Circle of Rainbows and Happiness before I retire…for real this year.
