We are so excited. DD competes at YMCA in Stuart FL, Level 10. We leave for GWGF on 2/21 and she competes 2/22. We will be very cold....Our coach is from Siberia originally, so he picks out out of state competition where the skiing is good! The plus for us is that my sister-in-law and mother-in-law live in Post Falls...I think 12 or 15 relatives are coming to watch Chloe compete. We are staying at the resort Thur-Sat and then going to Post Falls before we fly out. I have heard the meet is a lot of fun. We are looking forward to attending! We will be the ones with some tan.

I wish we were coming back. The GWGF is just an awesome meet. My gymmie got to go last year with her previous gym as a L6 and just had a blast(ok it helped that the team won). Lots to do and alot of good gymnastics to watch when not competing.

Best wishes to Awposey and Hunde's dd's at the meet.

We tried going this year but the flights in and out of Cour de' lane didn't make the flights with a large team very easy.

Our leos are red on top/blue on the bottom... easiest way to see them is to go to AllAmericanGymnasticsCenter.com. Was the Palouse Invitational the meet in Moscow? We didn't go, although a few on the team did. We were worried we wouldn't make it to Boise for the Gem State Invitational (highway was closed off & on that week) and the coach found the Moscow meet and discovered we could still enter. It was an optional meet for us... I think five or six girls went. I didn't have DD compete because I was going to be out-of-town.

We are looking forward to the GWGF. I need to call tomorrow and see if there are still tix available for the Ice Cream Social.

I called today and the Ice Cream Social tickets are sold out. If you know of anyone who has extras, I would love to get even one. Three would be ideal, but I would take one or two and send DD w/my friend who was smart enough to buy her tix in January. :)

Our team will be there too. My daughter is Level 5 and competes on Saturday. We went last year. It's a fun meet and there are sooo many talented gymnasts. Are Olympians handing out the awards again?

Our team is in session 6. Originally they were scheduled for Friday, but then they were switched to another session. It seems as if there are a TON of level 5's this year :). Good luck!!!

Great Videos

Hunde2- I was on youtube and saw your dd's vault and floor, they looked just beautiful. I especially loved the way she stuck that second vault! Did she score well? I hope so. You have a very beautiful and talented daughter!
