CARE-ing Bear Volunteers

Just a friendly memo to all gymnastics team and tumbling team members on volunteering…. some clubs charge a Booster fee, Competition fee, even up to $1000 per athlete.  This is something we are never interested in.  We have always held the three recitals in Dubuque and our Tumbling Events to assist in these fees to keep everyone’s expense as low as possible.  You will still have your admission fees to pay the day of the meet as this is our fund-raiser, and these funds will go to pay administration, judges and coaches fees to run the meet. If you would like to opt out of volunteering, there is a memo in our registration information reminding you to submit a $100 check to us (please make this payment by January 25th).

Everyone: Practice Feb 8th is 8 – 11 at the Dubuque Club for all tumblers and gymnasts.  From Noon – 4 pm, everyone will meet for set up at the Grand Harbor Convention Center. If for any reason your are not going to be present for set up, you must rsvp to

Sunday, February 9th. We should all arrive at the Grand Harbor convention Center to set up around 7:30 am please (time subject to change once the schedule is out).  All gymnastics and tumbling team parents should plan on spending the day at the club helping and cheering on the athletes. Everyone plans on set-up, volunteering at a station, and clean up around 4/5:00 pm / For specific volunteer tasks – please post at the bottom of this page.
