Gymfinity’s Home Meet Rocks

This weekend we hosted the “With A Star On Top” gymnastics invitational. We thought it would be a small meet but it turned into a meet of over 350 gymnasts with almost 1000 spectators. Big.

Our team parents group was amazing. This meet was organized and operated by parents and it went off without a hitch. Meet planning started in July for this event and we had parents doing everything from selling advertising to baking brownies. Visiting teams paid us many compliments.  One coach told me, “We’ll come to your meet every year because you guys do it right.”

I cannot complement our parents enough for all the work they did. And I cannot thank them adequately in proportion to the amount of work they did and the result it created. Gymfinity has a reputation as running a great meet and this year was no exception.  My field generals Amy Z and Jen F kept the meet running smooth. I had nothing to do because they did it all and they did it well. They worked from before the meet started to well after it was over. They were first in and last to leave. My gratitude goes out to them and to all the parents that worked so hard. 

The parents who served as committee chairs ran the awards, the program, the decorations, the publicity and the hospitality to a high standard and worked diligently to  make sure the meet was flawless. I am happy and sad to say that the only minor glitches that happened (no calling out raffle winners, forgetting Level 3 trophies) were all my mistakes.  The parents rocked.

Our teams did exceptionally well. We had great competition at all levels from gyms around the state and our girls had to work to get their accolades. And the accolades came. The level 4 team took 3rd and the level 5’s won first place as a team. individuals did an amazing job too:
