SNOWFLAKE FLIP MEET COMING
The second home meet for the Aerials is coming in early January. The Snowflake Flip will be held at the Gym Bin on Saturday, January 7th with the first of four sessions beginning at 8:00 in the morning. Silver Xcel will be competing in this first session. Bronze Xcel will be in the second session beginning at 11:00, Gold Xcel and Level 3 will be in the third session beginning at 1:00 and Level 4 and 5 will be in the final session beginning at 4:30. We will be having teams from Superior, Virginia, Detroit Lakes, Fergus Fall and Grand Rapids along with our home team.
As usual with home meets we will need help setting up, running and tearing down the meet. There will be a sign up sheet on the board this week so please check it out and sign up to help. Please plan to help clean up after the meet. There is equipment to move before and after the meet and that takes strength and numbers so please plan to help out.
