President’s Report on the Panthers Snowflake Invitational Regional – National

On the weekend of January 23rd-25th, Panthers Gymnastics Club hosted the Snowflake Invitational Women’s Provincial and Trampoline and Tumbling Competitions. At this competition a total of 14 clubs from various Manitoba communities attended as well as one club from Dryden, Ontario.

It was a demanding weekend of competition, which I attended Saturday and Sunday. Robert, Helene, the Panthers’ staff and volunteers worked tirelessly as this was Panther’s largest ever event with 400 gymnasts competing from 7am to 10pm on both days. Everyone worked hand in hand to coordinate all proceedings so that the competition ran like clockwork. All gymnasts who competed have their names posted on the MGA results website.

I would like to thank Panthers Gym Club for the invitation and the honour of giving out awards. Thank you to the volunteers who assisted me during the many award ceremonies held throughout the weekend. Credit for the success of this event goes to the coaches, judges, gymnasts and volunteers who make it happen. On behalf of the MGA, I take this opportunity to recognize their hard work and commitment to the sport.
