Well, lots to say but barely the energy to put it down on paper. An incredible weekend that went very slowly each day but feels like a blur trying to look back.
Overall, I would say this was the best Regionals we have had as a gym since merging Canada West and the North West.
Although we are not sending anyone forward to the Games this year, we have given notice that both our team and individual athletes belong at the upper echelon of the Regionals competitors.
A huge thank you to everyone back home who cheered, tuned in, or otherwise supported our whole competitive group through the year. To everyone who chipped in treatments for the athletes, some dollars to our fundraising, or who sponsored our shirts, a heartfelt thank you also.
And to those who made the trek, including expert therapists Tuna and Ange, moms and dads, dogs, small children, and avid Vic City supporters, thank you very much for the on-site support.
Now, for a bit of time "off" :)
