Day 2 at Nationals

Day two of competition at National Championships puts Michael Chaves in a tie for first in the Youth Men's category but ranked first due to tie breaking rules.

Jonathan Meehan sits tied for 4th place but having landed two successful passes he met is National Team qualification standard for the Senior Team.

You can see their passes on my Youtube channel.  See the link in a previous post.

Way to go OGC Tumblers!

So far in the 5 categories that OGC had tumblers compete we hold the 1st place rank in four of them.  Fingers crossed that we can hold onto them.

Good luck to Savannah Wepf, Michael Chaves, and Jonathan Meehan who will all be part of the Ontario Team participating in the raucous Team competition.

As well good luck to all of the Novice tumblers who will compete in the finals tomorrow.

Nationals Results Day 1

I only have results for the OGC's Novice National 11-14 Women and the Novice National 15+ Men.  I'm hoping to see the Novice 15+ Women's results tomorrow.  These are Preliminary round scores only.  More to come.

Congratulations to all of the OGC Tumblers who competed today.  13 out of 14 passes landed.  2 OGC tumblers sitting in first place maybe 3 once we see the the Novice 15+ Women's results.  Good luck to Jonathan and Michael who compete tomorrow.

The tide was out so the mud seemed to go on forever. Shoes just didn't cut it. Even the moms got a bit ... well ... dirty. Apparently wrapping the kids in garbage bags was the best we could do so we didn't get our rental cars so filthy.

Good times!
