Viewing Area Closed after 5:00pm

This week the OGC viewing area will be closed from 5:00pm onwards.  There will be no parents/family/friends permitted in the viewing area or lobby of the OGC.

Athletes are to be dropped off and picked up at the sliding glass doors.

If your child needs to leave early please let the athlete and coach know at the start of the class.

If you need to contact the athlete in order to pick them up before the end of class as an emergency please come around to the double doors by the corner of the gym with the trampolines and knock on those doors.  Regular viewing area hours will resume on Sunday, January 4th.

Summer Handstand Photo Contest Winners

As judged by a jury of Don (because I wanted to get this done today as I am now 3 months behind on getting this posted) here are your winners.

Winners were selected based on:

1) Must be a handstand or handstand variation
2) Must be fun or clever
3) Must be "summery"
4) Must be an interesting photo

#1 Jasmine's inverted 1 arm pose on the monkey bars. Cute.  Fun. Creative.

#2 Ally's summer playground group photo.  I like the colours, the group, the editing, the summer scene.

#3 Lovisa's handstand photo is so SUMMER.  The stripes, the towel, the bathing suit, the water and the photo is pretty cool looking with the lines and angles.
 Honourable mentions:
Jasmine on the beach

Jasmine on the playground also a creative photo.

Sierra at the top of the stairs.  It worries me and makes me look.

Allison is just so summer fun in this photo.  The splash pad, the over sized leaves.  Makes me want summer back.

Allison getting some performers at Canada's Wonderland to hold her up and join in the fun.

Lovisa's beautiful scenery and neat shadow

Sydney in the big red chair.  Just hanging out.  Nothing says summer like the dock chair.

Danielle's clever handstand photo.  Like she is the evolution of balance or about be crushed by a giant slab of medal.  Run! Danielle!

Summer Handstand Photo contest Finally!

Okay, so I was missing several photos from the summer.  I dug back into my inbox and found the remaining dozen or so photos.  Here is every photo I received. 
85 photos. 
19 different bodies. 
Many different locations.

Glad to see the OGC acrobats are doing their handstands absolutely everywhere.

Winners to be posted next.
