  • Girls’ Gift Exchange- $10 limit for a pair of socks and a mug

o   The captains voted and decided this would be a fun gift exchange

o   Each girl who wants to participate should bring a wrapped pair of socks and a mug totaling around $10 to exchange with another gymnast. We will have 2 categories little feet who wear a shoe size 2 or smaller and big feet who wear a shoe size 3 or bigger. The girls should bring a new pair of socks the same size as they would wear.

  • Coaches’ Gift- Donation of your choice (typically $10/family)

o   We will be collecting money again this year to give to our coaches as a gift for all of their hard work. If you would like to put money in for the coaches’ gifts please place cash or check, written to Cristie Bray, in an envelope in the polka dot folder outside Kristin’s office by Dec 19th. We will be checking the folder frequently.

  • Please refer to the SUG for more details and to volunteer to help at the event or to bring food.
