Orbit Milton Keynes
Xmas Competition for Orbit Milton Keynes 08
We held this at our latest and most prestigious venue, The Kingston Gymnastics Centre in South Milton Keynes. Equipment was first rate, the seating and viewing was excellent, and a good home cooking style café was open all afternoon.
This was our first intra club competition as a combined membership and entries at first were slow, but we ended with a huge field of 120 plus competitors and a tremendous days' trampolining. As a rest from the grueling season, our squad did not compete, but took part in a fancy dress competition, which was won by a pirate, and gave displays throughout the day. A cameraman from The Citizen arrived promptly and snapped some action shots during warm ups, which set the mood and got the afternoon off to a good start.
We tried to provide something for everybody, beginning with 5yrs. and under and it was only some 30 or more children later, around three o'clock that we reached the ten year olds. This continued throughout the afternoon with eight more groups until we reached the over 16s. and a final display by the squad to bring the competition to a conclusion at 6.0pm and right on time.
On time that is, for a disco upstairs, going on until 9.30pm, which was solid action from the moment 'go'.
This had been a very full and successful event, including side attractions like nail art, hair styling and a candelfoss and popcorn stall.
It just remains to thank all those who judged, marshaled, recorded, 'spotted', marched children on, sold progammes and tickets, manned the stalls, changed the music, moved equipment, and in many unsung ways just kept the wheels oiled. Thank you all for a great day.
