State Meet Musings
I spent a very long, very enjoyable day the the USAG Kansas State Gymnastics meet. So far I've judged one session of Platinum/Diamond Floor Exercise, two sessions of Gold Uneven Bars, and two sessions of Bronze Balance Beam. Tomorrow I will judge three sessions of Silver Balance Beam. All together there are close to 1,000 gymnasts in this meet representing 23 gyms.
I saw some very good gymnastics today and yesterday. I also, unfortunately, have seen some very ugly gymnastics; the kind of gymnastics that offends my eyeballs to have to watch it. I have met some fantastic coaches and parent volunteers.
I have seen some quite ridiculous names. Some of my (not-so)favorites are:
That's enough for me today!
