RGC Board Level Opportunities – 2017

 

The 6th Allianz Resolution Run was a big success!

post race 2016
The 6th Allianz Annual Resolution Run took place last Friday – New Year’s Day. The race had its largest entry to date with 428 registrations. There was a great mix of athletes from national clubs and the many families who made the run. On the plus side, the weather was much improved from last year making it all more cheerful!


There was great support from RGC and Monivea RFC parents who volunteered to marshal at over 25 junctions along the route.

Refreshments for all those taking part were organised and served by some very willing and helpful RGC mums –  Martha Molloy, Carmel Mahon, Sylvia McDonagh, Breda Smyth, Anne-Celine Donohoeand and Carol Hynes.

The race could not have taken place without the many volunteers support and especially the hard working committee who spent many hours planning and co-ordinating it beforehand –  Philip Harkin , John Molloy, Tony Killarney, Paul Shaughnessy,  John Donohoe and James Quirke.

Many thanks again for making the 2016 Allianz Resolution Run the most successful yet. All proceeds to go towards gym equipment.

RGC 1st Annual Club Competition a Great Success!

Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in the 1st Annual RGC Competition on Sunday May 11th 2014. You all did a fabulous job with your routines on the day and the coaches are VERY proud of each and every one of you!

 

We had over 60 gymnasts compete the level 1A routines in the morning session. For all gymnasts involved this was their first competition experience. Although battling nervous energy each gymnast successfully competed floor routines with beauty and grace. Along with floor routines each had a vault to perform too! Gymnasts sprinted down the vault strip performing powerful vault after vault! Excellent work gymnasts!

 

In the afternoon session we saw a mixture of some of our young level 1 club gymnasts and our older pre-teens compete the 1B and 1C routines. The gymnasts made it look easy! Performing on vault and floor with fantastic strength and agility.

 

Excellent work overall by all the gymnasts involved! We can’t wait to start getting ready for next year!

Good Luck getting ready for GYMFEST!

 

Another round of applause for all the volunteers who made the day possible. Thank you for your support, time and dedication. Without you such an event would never have been possible. Anyone interested in getting involved with next years competition please let us know.
