I would like to thank Sharon Parrett and Nichola Wood for judging 284 bar routines over 16 different competitions. Such dedication to our club and gymnastics.
I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Nobbs who once again went above and beyond in her role as competition manager. Taking care of 284 gymnasts, 70 judges, two lorries full of equipment, Milano, DE photos, GymData and goodness knows how many coaches and spectators. Your amazing!
