Our intrepid By GMR owner-operators, Mike and Kappy will be making another Region 8-oriented trek northward!
June 8 – 10th marks the weekend of Region 8’s Mini-Congress! For the southeastern gymnastics professional, it’s the regional version of the USA Gymnastics’ National Congress and Trade Show that gathers attendees from all over the United States. In the industry, it goes by the moniker “Congress”, sort of like Madonna or Cher, but better on beam.
Not everyone in the gymnastics community can afford the time or money to travel across the country, stay in a hotel and get the big Congress experience. If you can swing it, it’s a great time! There are seminars, workshops and clinics that cover the gamut of subjects of ardent interest to the community: coaching techniques, bio-mechanics, fundraising, sports psychology, rec programs, gym insurance and liability, child safety, gym management… you name it!
If attending a national Congress isn’t an option for you, a mini-congress held in your region makes for a wonderful opportunity to connect with other gymnastics community professionals, attend seminars and see what’s available from gymnastics industry vendors like By GMR and Ten-o!
Kappy and Mike are super excited to attend this year’s Region 8 Mini-Congress to be held at the Benton Convention Center in Winston Salem, North Carolina. The folks in scheduling have put together a fantastic line-up of classes following the tracks: coaching, business/sports science, technical and recreational. It’s not just for coaches and gym owners, though! Individuals aged 14 and up are encouraged to attend!

Mike and Kappy will bring our new catalogue showcasing our most popular, products. “The classics!” The catalogue is shaped like a cellphone to highlight this year’s Ten-o website upgrade to a responsive platform that makes viewing and ordering easy on every device! September will usher in our 40th year in the gymnastics equipment business. We may have been around a while, but we do keep up with the times!
Mike and Kappy will also bring some Ten-o Pop Socket cell phone holders, coupons for free shipping on grips and perhaps some other convention schwag? No congress, mini or maxi, is complete without it!
