Eclipse smash it at Kings Lynn Gymnastics Club

eclipse-2015-kingslynnIt has been a busy couple of weekends at Eclipse and AoR, and this weekend I was over at Kings Lynn Gymnastics Club with Eclipse for one of their main external competitions.

The competition in Kings Lynn is one of the highlights on the Eclipse calendar and for some of the more experienced gymnasts, it is a chance to go up against some stiff competition.  For the younger, less experienced gymnasts, it is a chance to gain some valuable motivation and inspiration.  That came in spades during the lunchtime break when some of the best Kings Lynn tumblers put on an amazing display of their talents, including one lad who took on a move which ended in four rotations about the body – simply stunning.

That said, this year the gymnasts from Eclipse seem to have gone above and beyond.  Medals seemed to be coming left right and centre, from just about every category entered and every age group.  At one point the podium was completely blocked out (bronze, silver and gold) by nine of the girls from the club and getting some presentation photographs was often night on impossible with so many people moving around the podium.

The kids work really hard throughout the week on their acro routines and their tumble skills, and the coaches work just as hard to help get the best from the kids.  This weekend was a reminder of just how hard everyone at Eclipse gymnastics works, how that commitment on both sides can pay off and how a few people can help to enrich the lives of so many kids and their families.  Eclipse is a wonderful friendly club and all credit to Terry and his team who have built up this ‘family’ of gymnasts over the last few years.

Well done to everyone involved.

Anyway, the photographs from the weekend are now online and available in the usual Eclipse Gymnastics photo gallery.  If you need the username and password, please ask one of the coaches.  For child protection reasons, I’m not permitted to share the login details with people.

AoR Tournament Gallery now online

aor_15albionwindsorI was at Archers Of Raunds with camera again yesterday with the remit of capturing some general images for use on the club’s website, blog and for promotional purposes.  The tournament was extremely well run again and I was pleased to try out the new lens extender to get in a little closer whilst shooting from the sidelines.  The results are a little soft but the equipment still helped me to capture a few good shots.

Debbie, please let me know which images you need and in what size for publicity purposes and I’ll get those to you.

In the meantime, a number of the competitors at yesterday’s archery tournament at Archers Of Raunds were asking me about where they can view and order the photographs from.  I am pleased to confirm that they are now online here.

It’s been a little bit of a rushed job, but I know that a number of the kids wanted to see the photographs online ASAP. They are now available in the usual Eclipse Gymnastics gallery on http://www.m4photo.co.uk.

As usual, please ask one of the coaches for the username and password. For child protection reasons, I am not permitted to give it out to anyone because I don’t know everyone associated with the club or a child at the club any longer.

I hope that you enjoy the photographs and I plan to be at the club on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening with the laptop and printer. Just tap me on the should if you want to look at anything or purchase an image.

Finally well done to all the kids who competed today. I have watched many of you develop over the last few years and the standard just gets better and better. The routines were awesome and the first timers did just great.

Congrats to everyone concerned.
