Hi Everyone, I wanted to let everyone know where we stand currently with the COVID-19 pandemic and our Regional Meet.

We will be moving our Regional Championship meet back a month, for the safety of our athletes and families. I received confirmation from the Chieftain Center that we will be able to set up on Thursday May 14th after 4pm. We will have the facility rented for our Regional meet from 5/15/2020-5/17/2020. I have already contacted and gotten confirmation from our equipment rental company to push back to these dates. I have contacted our judging assigner and given her the new dates. I have also received the “green light” from our Regional Committee that they are supporting these new dates. We made sure to avoid Ohio University’s graduation weekend (to ease hotel situation), and also Logan and Lancaster High School graduation dates. I felt strongly that we needed to keep our meet in Logan as the surrounding community has already contributed considerably.

Our team is still very excited to be hosting this competition this year. What I can tell everyone now is that we are well ahead of schedule for this meet. I am still receiving team rosters and team checks daily. We know that these dates may change things for some of your families. If you have a family that has a graduation conflict please email me directly at [email protected] so that I can adjust your team rosters. If we have already received your meet check we will offer a refund for this. We are hoping that it won’t cause too much of a problem for your gymnasts. We will go on a case by case basis. This being said we are extending our deadlines to 3/28/2020. This includes online apparel orders, team rosters/checks, personal ads, senior information, etc. It would be fantastic if you can still plan to send those digital team rosters to me by the original deadline of 3/14/2020. I would like to get a schedule worked out as soon as possible so people know when kids will be competing. It would also be very helpful if your seniors information is to us by this weekend so we can continue to work on the Regional Program and honor these young ladies. I have updated all of our documents and attached them to this email for your convenience.

They are also updated on our website: Please remind your parents to give us a few business days to adjust the room blocks, then they will be able to adjust their hotel/cabin reservations.

As always if you have questions please let me know!
