Dear Gymnasts/Parents.

I have a few things to update you with:

Display season.

First, my congratulations to the gymnasts and adult support team for
another brilliant display season, with a spectacular finale at the Youth Festival of Remembrance, Folkestone. (Photos and videos can be seen on our Facebook page and group accounts).

A big thank you to all those gymnasts who attended most, if not all, of the displays. Without your commitment and dedication, it would not have been possible to perform. In addition, a huge thank you to Gavin Tyrie-Owers for all the hard work he has put in over the season trying to organise last minute teams and routines. Not an easy task!

And to parents who continue to support us. ferry their children to and from displays, help with loading/unloading kit. send in display photos and provide raffle prizes and food for our fundraising events, many thanks.

Training during exams.

Unfortunately, there will be NO TRAINING from Wednesday 1lth December
2019 — Wednesday 18th December 2019 (inclusive). Monday 6th January 2020,
or Wednesday 8th January 2020. This is due to the gym being in use by for exams. I have tried to acquire the sports hall but unfortunately it is unavailable to us. Sadly, with the Christmas break in the middle this means the loss of a lot of training sessions which is not what we want but our hands are tied.

Training Session Subs

For several years now we have been able to keep our subs down to £1.50 session. However, the increased costs of repair, first aid supplies, insurance etc., we are having to raise the subs to £3 per session from Monday 13th January 2020. This is still well below what other clubs and groups charge and well worth the money!

Health forms.

If you have changed address, doctors’, contact numbers or are now receiving medication etc., can you please complete another health form and hand in to me (Annie). These are available to on website in the members section. http://bluefalcons.org.uk/

Adult Support.

Parents – We are always on the lookout for Adult Support Members. If you feel that you can give up some of your time on Monday/Wednesday evenings (or both) we would be very glad to hear from you! Just speak to any of the Adult Support Team for Details.

Christmas party.

As we will not have training prior to the Christmas as normal, we will arrange for a New Year Party/fundraiser instead of our usual Christmas Party/fundraiser. The date is yet to be confirmed but I will keep you posted!

Facebook notifications.

Don’t forget that all up to date information is posted on our Facebook group account. If you are not already a member of the group, please apply by searching on Facebook for Current Members of The Blue Falcons Gymnastic Display Team, and request to join. Liking our Blue Falcons page will not enter you into this group. Facebook Group

Thank you again for your continued support.

Youth Festival of Remembrance, Folkestone

Dear Parents/Gymnasts,
I have organised a coach for this event but to assist with the cost of hiring we are charging gymnasts and Adult Support Group €3 per seat.
We will require gymnasts and ASG to be at Chelmer Valley High School by
7.00am at the latest.

Please ensure that team members have the following:

Travelling kit — Blue Falcons polo shirts, shorts, hoodies, trackie bottoms,
WHITE plimsolls and WHITE socks.

Please make sure all clothing has the gymnasts names in. (Bear in mind the location and weather at this time of year. Just wearing T-shirt and shorts will NOT be sufficient to keep warm!)

Plenty Of water
A packed lunch or money for food and drink.
A fully charged mobile phone – gymnasts can contact parents when they are nearing school for collection.
Spending money.
Wet wipes/towel for freshening up.

Also ensure that anyone that has an inhaler, epipen etc., brings them in a
named plastic bag to keep with them.

Arrival back to CVHS will be approximately 11.30pm-12.OOam but as stated
gymnasts will contact parents as we get nearer home. Gymnasts will be
required to help unload the lorry before going home. We will all be tired but the more hands, the quicker it’s done and we can all go home!

Please complete the required form and return it to me, with the money in a
sealed envelope by Wednesday 6th November 2019.

Many thanks
Kind regards
Annie Girling
