Great Time in Tawatinaw!

Thank you to all our girls who came out to Tawatinaw on Saturday to support the Canadian Men's National team in their final mock meet before heading to Japan next week for the World Championships.  It was a great time watching amazing gymnastics and cheering for our 4 Capital City athletes.  
It is very exciting that CCGC has 4 boys going to Worlds!  Congratulations to Jackson, Brandon, and Kevin who will be representing Canada, and to Bobby who will be representing Thailand.  And thank you to Dom who provided a delicious BBQ for everyone after the event.  What a great world class athletic center Dom has built.
