The second annual “Spring Fling Mini Meet” was a huge success. More than 40 entry level gymnasts were able to showcase skills and accomplishments to family and friends.
As competitive gymnastics is fairly new to Conrad, the event was an opportunity for new gymnasts to learn the in’s and out’s of competition.
The evening line-up included gymnastics trivia, raffles, a cake auction and comic relief provided by our local clown extraordinaire, Zane Drishinkski.
