Subject: FlashPoint BBS, remodeled!

Hey everyone, this is to let you know that FlashPoint BBS is now being
remodeled. Thanks partly to Logitec for crashing my system! Its amazing how a
$50 rat can kill a $15000 system!

But the remodeling is for the better! You will now be able to preview the
images, before you download! We are working with new software, that is
multi-tasking, to save you time and phone charges! When we go back on-line we
will be up and running at 28.8 bps! But on the bad side, the first time you
log on you will have to download a special terminal program for our new and
improved software! By the way, we are using Excalibur software, so if any of
you happen to have their terminal program it will work.

We will also have new images from NCAA's, including UCLA, UTAH, ALABAMA,
Jenny Henson and others.

To those of you who have tried to call the last couple of days, we apoligize
for not being up and running. I am still working on recovering from the crash
of 95 and installing and customizing our new software, I hope to have us back
on-line within a week. I will let all of you know when I do get us on-line.

Lori, aka- JC Laramie, sysop of FlashPoint BBS

Subject: Kim Zmeskal

I saw this info on the America Online message board a couple of weeks ago.  I
wrote the author, who at least used to be on GYMN, to post the info here, but
I haven't gotten a reponse, so I'll just go ahead.  I know some of you will
be interested.
Apparently, Svetlana Boginskia hurt her back.  Anyone know anything about
Like others on this list, I've been dying to know what skills Kim is doing,
and according to the message, she does 3 layout stepouts on beam and a
full-in back out dismount on bars.  So much for all of the criticism about
her "lack" of difficulty!!

Hi Everyone!!! My name is Jessica, and I am a 13 year old gymnast in Iowa. I
found out about this service thru GymStars Magazine. As I said, I am a
gymnast, and have been competing since age 10. Already I have been state
champion twice in all-around, and this year qualified to nationals. I am very
excited about Gymn and am looking forward to LOTS of e mail. I am currently
using America Online, and my screen name is ***
See everyone around!!!!

Subject: various questions

Now that Kim Zmeskal is doing 3 Layouts on beam and a Full-in on bars,
what are the starting scores for those routines?  Also, is a full turn
still a requirement for floor ex?  Kotchectkova and Podkopaeva don't do one.

Sorry if this is a dumb question:  Are the Junior gymnasts on the National
team Elites or Level 10?

Juniors competing at the national level are elites. They just fall under a
certain age bracket (14 or 15 I think).

Speaking of the elites, anyone got a list of those who have qualified for
Nationals, both juniro and senior?

Subject: Frederick Jahn

Hi all,

A Usenet "filter" service brought up this article which caught my eye.
Perhaps someone on Gymn-L might be able to help him out with more info.
(As much as I'd like to browse my book collection to find info for him,
time does not permit...)
