Region VII – Update Lynn

It is with such deep sadness that I share with you that Lynn Perrott, our Regional Chair, passed away earlier this evening.  Richard, Lynn’s husband, shared that she was surrounded by her family, and passed comfortably and peacefully.

Myra and I each had the opportunity to go to Lynn’s home yesterday to spend precious time with her, and to say good-bye.  That time meant the world to us. Lynn’s family has been amazing—opening their hearts and home to so many friends and family.

Lynn knew how much we loved her and cared about her.  Her family is so grateful for the support, caring thoughts and gestures from so many people in our Region 7 community.

Lynn will be sorely missed by everyone in the Region 7 Gymnastics community, and by gymnastics communities throughout the United States.  We will remember her for her keen intelligence, sense of humor, wit and positive attitude, even in the face of her illness.  She was an extraordinary leader for our region and, even more, a cherished friend.  

We have not received any information about arrangements, and when we do we will pass it forward.

Please continue to keep Lynn’s family in your thoughts and prayers. 

Love and Peace,

Linda J and Myra

Region 7 High Performance Clinic

We are busy finalizing plans for our 10th Annual High Performance Camp, Sept. 19-21 at Woodward.
In this email you will find some important reminders regarding the camp.  Attached you will find a reminder list, liability waivers, and fundraiser information. All attendees—athletes, coaches and judges—must submit a liability waiver.   Any attendees of minor age must have this signed by a parent/legal guardian.  You do not need to complete the page on Medical History–
There are a large number of registered coaches and athletes with expired pro or athlete memberships.  This is a sanctioned event, and these must be up to date in order to attend–no exceptions!  Chris Erickson has emailed all clubs that have a coach or athlete who has not renewed.  MANY OF THE COACHES ON THIS LIST DO NOT HAVE CURRENT BACKGROUND CHECKS.  If this is the case, it is possible that the background check will not be cleared before the camp.  If your coach cannot attend, and you will be replacing the coach, please make sure you notify me byWednesday September 17th with the coach's name and USAG number so that I can verify.  Athlete renewals are easier–you just have to pay their dues!  Again, if the name (athlete or coach) is not cleared before the camp, the coach and/or athlete may not attend the camp.  All athletes must be accompanied by a coach! 
I have also attached information about our team building Fundraiser "Region 7 Strong" to continue raising money for the American Cancer Society.  I hope you will consider betting on one of our athlete teams.  Winning bets will be awarded a coupon for free registration to 2015 Regional Congress!  You can bid on a team during registration or up until 8:30am on Saturday (end of warm-up).
Lastly, and a huge favor to me, if you have any questions about the camp, please have a coach or judge (or club employee) contact me.  Please do not have family members emailing or calling me.  I REALLY appreciate that!!
See you all next week!
