Event Schedule Update


Here is the updated Acrobatic Gymnastics 
Event Schedule for 2016/2017

Items to note:

Ontario Championships are coming up in Pickering.  The competition schedule is already posted here.

National Acro Cup is coming up at OGC May 26th to 28th.  Be sure to invite all of your friends and extended family to come watch the best Acro in Canada compete for the big cup.

OGC Year End Banquet Awards Dinner is a different event than the OGC Year End Gala Gymnastics Show.  They are not the same thing.

There is one more event for the Provincial 2 Girls Acro Group,  the Boys Acro Group and the Provincial 3 Girls Acro Group, Ontario Gymnaestrada.  An email will be circulated to these three groups inviting them to participate in this large performance style event which includes a weekend of workshops and fun in Hamilton June 17th and 18th.

See the explanation of what Gymnaestrada is below the updated event calendar.

The P2, P3 and Boys groups will be doing a large multi-group routine for the OGC Year End Gymnastics Show.  We will have a routine to perform at the Ontario Gymnaestrada and this will provide the younger kids with an opportunity to learn a bit more about how to be performers.  Look for an email with more information about the Ontario Gymnaestrada this week.
