CETC had a great weekend in Glenrothes at the first SG Competition of the year- which was a Regional Series event and also a Scottish National Championships Qualification event. 
We had quite a few gymnasts competing on the Scottish circuit for the first time. 
36 CETC TRA gymnasts competed, ranging from level NDP 1- NDP 6 - and secured a whopping 30 qualifiers for the March Regional Semi-Finals event (83% of gymnasts who took part!)!! 
We also had a further 9 gymnasts secure qualification for Scottish Nationals - Well done everyone!!!
Congratulations also to our 8 medalists: 

Ava Harvey NDP6 15-16 SILVER
Olivia Purves NDP6 11-14 SILVER
Aaron Loftus NDP6 11-14 BRONZE
Taylor Robertson NDP5 15+ SILVER
Crawford Greig NDP3 9-10 SILVER
Amelia Lawson NDP3 11-12 BRONZE
Archie Lawson NDP2 7-8 GOLD
Jamie Adams NDP1 9-10 SILVER

Thank you to all our volunteer officials and coaches at this event - which had an unexpected and prompt finish due to an evacuation of the sports centre caused by a fire in the building. It was great to see and hear so many of the team supporting each other - and you should all be very proud of your efforts- the Club are proud of you all and hope you all had fun!!
We are all looking forward to getting preparations underway for the next event in February - keep up the great work at training!

New 2019 Computer Scoring System for CETC!

  • 7 January 2019
  • cetc_secretary

CETC have been running competitions/events since the Club started in 2006. Over the years, CETC has built up a bank of donated second -hand computers and printers which have been pulled together to create our computer recording system. Sadly, our 12 year old mis-match system completely crashed on us at Club Championships this year- resulting in a huge amount of stress, and only manual scoring on the day.
Thank you again to everyone who chipped in and actually managed to get the event completed under the circumstances!
However, we are thrilled to announce-  that thanks to some good Boxing Day sales and the fantastic fundraising efforts of our members and our fundraising coordinator Lesley Borthwick, we have managed to raise enough funds from: Tombola, Tuck shop and Kit sale stall at Club Champs and through the CETC Christmas Raffle, to purchase 5 new laptops and a wireless printer for our events, enabling us to actually run 5 panels with an up-to-date functioning computer scoring system in future!!
We are currently looking for donations of printer paper and HP ink cartridges (colour and black) in code 304 to get this all up and running.
Please let us know if you can help!!
Thank you to all our members for their ongoing support with Club fundraisers to enable this to happen!
