On Saturday November 23rd, our Club held our annual ‘Extravaganza’ show case. This year is very special as our club celebrates its 70th birthday. To commemorate 70 years of Devonport Gymnastics Club, we invited clubs from all over the state to participate in our 2019 Extravaganza. The day featured performances from Burnie Zodiacs gymnastics club, Wynyard gymnastics club, and Hobart PCYC gymnastics club.
Our annual display day is a chance for every gymnast to show their families and friends what they’ve been working on throughout the year at gymnastics. Each class learns a routine during their lesson to perform on the day, show casing the new skills they have achieved this year.
The Extravaganza also features some of our competitive and more advanced classes. This is an opportunity to show everyone in our club how far you can go in the sport and what you can achieve. For our younger gymnasts and also their families, this can be very inspiring and motivate them to be the best that they can be.
We would like to give a huge thank you to all our staff and committee for their hard work and to all the volunteers, without these people this event would not be possible. We would also like to say a big thank you to the clubs and their families who traveled from around the state to celebrate our 70th birthday.
This year has been a very exciting time in our club, celebrating 70 years of our club and also 70 years of Gymnastics in Australia. As this year comes to a close, the completion of the new building draws nearer. 2020 is going to be a big year for Devonport Gymnastics Club and everyone involved, we look forward to the journey and continuing the clubs legacy.
