Subject: Predictions for Worlds 95

        Here I go.

        Women Team
        1. Romania
        2. Russia
        3. United States
        4. China

        Women AA
        1. Khorkina
        2. Milosivich
        3. Miller
        4. Mo

        Men Team
        1. China
        2. Germany
        3. Russia

        Men AA
        1. Ivankov
        2. Nemov
        3. Scherbo

** I make these predictions with great apprehension.  The women's team
   is Romania's to lose.  The USA is hurt big time by the injuries and
   replacements.  Russia should slip by the USA.  In the AA, this is just
   a guess.  Miller could win again.  Milosivich could finally win the big
   AA.  This is going to be fun, and very interesting.  I also think that
   Marinescu and Moceanu will both make a splash like Mo Huilan did at
   Brisbane.  That's all for know!

Subject: Final Aussie team....

West Australian Jenny Smith (5th at Nationals and 3rd at Trials),
sprained her ankle in training, and is a late withdrawal from Worlds.  So
the final Aussie womens team is:

Ruth Moniz
Joanna Hughes
Kirsty-Lee Brown
Lisa Skinner
Lisa Moro
Nicole Kantek
Genevive Preston

This has to be a disapointment for Jenny, who was first at Trials last
year for the Commonwealth Games, but injured her shin, just days before
the team left.  Interestingly that means that every Aussie womens reserve
for Worlds and Olympics from 1991 to 1995 has come from the same city

Subject: gym support groups

I am a parent of a 12 year old level 9 gymnast.  I have been the
president of her club's booster club for 2 years and am currently
the newsletter editor.  Our booster club which is comprised of all of the
parents of team members is very active.  A year ago we did all of the work
with the two club owners to rennovate a 20,000 sq ft facility for the new gym.
Yes, we did all fo the plumbing, electical and heating - a great group of
parents.  The parents organization has purchased a new floor, tumble track and
is looking at replacing one beam and two bars so we can hold State Level Meets.

I am looking at networking with any parent organizations or coaches to get
ideas for things others have done to help support their gyms.  We do a lot of
fund raising and spend a lot of time in the gym.  One thing we get back is that
we keep the cost of being a competitive gymnast withtin the range of most kids
who want to be on the team.

Please e-mail me directly.
