David Scott – Acrobatic Gymnastics and Tumbling 

David is from England and a past World and European silver medallist in Men’s 4 acrobatic gymnastics as the top man on the pyramid.  He competed in acrobatic gymnastics for just 6 years travelling all around the world and competing in many different competitions - (World Cups - European Championships - World Games - World Championships - and many more) gaining a silver medal in almost every one! He became a coach while he was still training.  In 2007 he moved to Spain to work in an acrobatic show called Pirates Adventure.

Schedule for 3e Coupe Quebec

National Jeunesse is National Younger, National Ouvert is National Open or older

Niki and I are working on an itinerary to distribute to everyone this evening or tomorrow.  
What you really need to know at this point is that we will be getting on the bus at 9:00am on Friday and returning on Sunday evening after the competition.  All athletes and cheerleaders will be getting on the bus first thing in the morning on Saturday and Sunday.  The entire entourage will be at the competition all day and return on the bus to the hotel and for food after the competition each day.  Everyone is expected to cheer on the all OGC tumblers as this is a team event.

We do have start lists but will let everyone know their start order on the bus while traveling rather than post it here.

Uploaded Videos Interclub and Demo Tumblers

I uploaded all of the Demo and Interclub Tumbling level videos from our in-house Masquerade themed Tumbling and Acro competition.  My apologies for taking so long to get them up on my Youtube channel.
