Aisle 200, Booth #223 is where it’s at!
To highlight the advantages of our By GMR, Sag Bed Pit Bed System, we’re bringing a see-through, plexiglass, mini-Sag Bed Pit System to the trade show floor — complete with itty bitty, 2 inch, colored cubes for your pit cube counting pleasure!
Are you good at math, psychic or just generally lucky? Why not stop by and give us your best guess as to how many pit cubes we’ve used to fill our mini-Sag Bed Pit System gym pit?!
The Pit Specialists at By GMR, want you to see for yourself how our Sag Bed Pit System helps protect your athletes from the forces generated by all of those gravity defying skills we’ve come to love in our sport.
The lucky winner who comes closest to correctly guessing the number of tiny pit cubes we’ve used to fill the pit wins a $200 gift certificate to be used to make their GMR dreams come true!
But, that’s not all!
10 people who correctly guess the number of cubes in each color will each win a $25 gift certificate good toward the ten-o.com or By GMR product of their choice!
The fun doesn’t stop there, either! We’re also bringing a bevy of Gift Grab Bags for $5 filled with gymnastics themed items valued from $20 to $56 or $10 filled with gymnastics themed gifts valued from $75 to $110, guaranteed to bring big smiles to your favorite gymnasts. We think these will go quickly, so be sure to stop by early in the weekend to grab yours!
What USA Gymnastics Congress would be complete without hauling home a backbreaking amount of gymnastics industry schwag? We’re here to help there, too!
Included in your Congress orientation packet are coupons for, while supplies last, an expanding cellphone grip/car stand and a Ten-o branded water bottle holder attached to a fresh bottle of water. (We’re big believers in *useful* trade show goodies!)
