Hannah McCann in just her third Grade 2 competition came 4th out of over 50 competitors in the under-13 group and Kensie Sherlock in just her second grade 2 came 7th out of over 20 finalists in the under-11 group. What might they have done if they had had some experience?

Well done both!

Unfortunately for 'Tash, she came down with a bug before travelling and was unable to attend the practice session on Friday. Despite this she competed as well as she could on the Saturday but, unfortunately, her dream finish had to be put on hold for a year. Stephen and Scott both fared better, though, and went through to the final day in 7th and 4th places in their age groups respectively. Following a stunning voluntary routine Scott pulled up an amazing 4 places to take third and was duly followed later in the day by Stephen also pulling up to take third place. You can see the boy's final routines on the club website here.
Well done to them all!

Each award brings the club £200 in funding (i.e. £2,400 a year) to be spent on anything apart from running costs – i.e. it can be spent on new equipment, training courses etc… and members are encouraged to make suggestions to Dave about what the money could be spent on.
The first set of nominations recently took place and 11 members were nominated. The committee has agreed that the coaches will pick a winner from these nominations and the first winner has been picked and will be announced shortly. For the future feel free to make nominations when the box is placed by the door (Dave has nomination forms with the register) but only one per month per person please. All winners will receive a certificate and a ‘novelty cheque’ showing what they have won for the club and will be featured on the website and notice board.
Having made our application earlier this year we had our first meeting with Lynsey Mealham, BG’s Regional Development Officer, on 30th March where our basic administration and other systems were reviewed. This meting showed we had a surprisingly high degree of compliance already and so we set ourselves a demanding target of only a few weeks to complete the remaining tasks before meeting again on 3rd May. This meeting was very successful and prompted Lynsey to comment on how quickly we had completed the tasks. Lynsey has now reported to BG who will be reviewing our detail policy documents etc… before we get a formal decision on accreditation. In the meantime we have been required to formalise and/or restate a number of policies and procedures and all members and their parents/guardians ought to familiarise themselves with them since it impacts on how they need to be prepared for training and their behaviour.
These documents are all posted on our main notice board in the corridor and on the website; please do take time to read them, the Code of Conduct and associated Dress Policy in particular is a priority.

- Stephen Page, competing in the under-15 boys put down another strong (if not the strongest he has been showing he is capable of) performance demonstrating excellent form if a little travel. Ending in 3rd place of 15 he has reinforced his international aspirations.
- Scott Gregory competing in the under-17 boys performed a good set and voluntary routine positioning him in 4th place of 23 going into the final. Had his final routine been as good as the voluntary he might well have pinched 3rd place although was more than happy keeping 4th and a good qualifying score for national finals.
- Gemma Phillips, competing in the under-17 girls, ended about mid-point in this 40-strong group. Having developed a new voluntary routine Gemma moved closer to qualification to National Finals this time, missing by just 0.2 marks although has now achieved that precious retaining score!
