The Oakville Tumbling team found some time to see the sights in Bogota.  Like the Plaza de Bolivar in the heart of the city.

Holiday Fundraiser Tastes Good


It's that time of year again; Holiday Fundraising.  Last year our Cheese, Chocolate and Honey Fundraiser was a huge success.  We hope you all participate.  These items make great holiday gifts or items to bring to a holiday party. 

We will be handing out Fundraising forms this week to all of our tumbling athletes.  Please share this fundraiser with your extended family, neighbors, teachers, and friends.  Feel free to post on Facebook as well.  

Who doesn't love cheese? Or honey?  Or chocolate?
