On behalf of the coaches, gymnasts, and parent organization of the Tampa Bay Turners Gymnastics Academy, our very generous sponsors and the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, we want to congratulate you on qualifying to the 2014 Level 9 Eastern Championships. We realize your qualification is not only an accomplishment for you, the athlete, but also your coaches and family. For months the Tampa Bay Turners and our supporters have been looking forward to making this an event to be remembered by everyone involved for years to come. We are truly honored that USA Gymnastics has allowed us the opportunity to host this very prestigious championship event and promise to do whatever it takes to make the event a huge success. While we realize that the competition will be the focal point of the weekend, we hope that while you are in the beautiful Tampa Bay area you find time to experience a few of things that locals hold dear. From the welcome banquet, to Busch Gardens, to the Ellenton Mall and the Gulf of Mexico, please enjoy! Finally, we would like to take a moment to thank our sponsors: The Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, Meet Authority, Region 8 Gymnastics and Lightning City Gymnastics. Without their generous support these championships would not be possible. Once again, congratulations on your success achieved through your hard work and dedication. We look forward to making your trip to the 2014 Level 9 Eastern Championships one to remember.
