  • Apparel orders are being received
  • Donations are being secured
  • Hotel rooms are being booked

All of this means that we are on our way to making this a successful and profitable event for the Monarchs! 

With just over 6 weeks until A Royal Affair, we still need the following:

  • Sponsors, Program Advertisers and Donations – contact Jim Buisson ([email protected])
  • Medical professionals to work Saturday and Sunday shifts – contact Patricia Andersen ([email protected])
  • Volunteers for Friday morning Equipment set up (must be 18) – contact Stephanie Haarlammert ([email protected])
  • Order apparel or place a personal message in the program. You don’t have to participate to place an order (Level 3’s want the Royal treatment, too!). Orders are due March 11th.
  • Make friends and family aware of this event. For all the latest information, check out our website at https://regionals.pcymonarchs.com/, follow us on Facebook at 2017 YMCA Great Lakes Regional Championships or Twitter and Instagram! @2017regionals.

Things to remember:

  • Every family is required to help with a pre-meet task. Thank you to all who have volunteered.  Many tasks have been complete, some are underway, and some have yet to be done.  We will be contacting you to provide the detail needed to complete your task. However, if you have any questions, just ask.
  • Every family is required to help with setup or clean up.
  • Every family is required to work during the meet regardless of whether your gymnast will be participating. Please block the entire weekend now (April 7-9) to allow for maximum flexibility.  We have not yet decided how many of the 7 sessions each family will have to provide an adult to work.  As always, we will not schedule you while your gymnast is competing.

If you have any questions, please contact Jim B, Renee V, or Mariellen.

Upcoming Invoices:
