 2017 Regional Championships – Mariellen Voit

We now have 461 gymnasts registered from 23 teams. There are 36 teams in our Region and

we should have a final number of participants in next week’s Monarchs e-Mail. Thanks goes out

to everyone working so hard behind the scenes to make this happen. There is still much more

work to be done and some of you who haven’t fulfilled a pre-meet task (and others if willing) will

be contacted soon for sorting and stuffing and other tasks.

Volunteers for April 7 – 9

A Sign Up Genius will be going out in a few days. Every family (regardless of whether your

gymnast is competing or not) is required to work a minimum of three shifts worth during the

meet. This means that an individual adult from a gymnast’s family could sign up to work 3

separate shifts or 3 adults representing a gymnast’s family could sign up to work 1 shift. No

exceptions. If you can’t be available to work, then you must find a substitute. There are 7

sessions to choose from – 1 on Friday, 4 on Saturday, and 2 on Sunday. Each session is about

4 – 5 hours. If you can encourage more family and friend adults to volunteer or if you can work

more than 3 shifts, we welcome that. The 3 shifts are in addition to set up and clean up. All

volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt and free admittance to the event.

Apparel orders are due Saturday, March 11th.

Attached is the apparel order form. You don’t have to be competing to order apparel. Please

place your order form and payment in the lock box outside of Kristin’s office. If for some reason,

you can’t get to the Y to deposit your form, send an email to [email protected] with

the details of your order by March 11th so we can include it in the final count, and drop off your

order with payment early in the week.  Apparel Order Form 2017

Last call for Sponsors and Program Advertisers

11th. Remember, 20% of the payment goes to your family account. If you are waiting to hear

from a business and need additional time, contact Jim Buisson at

([email protected]).

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