Arson closes Apollo School of Gymnastics
Apollo School of Gymnastics, in Clearwater, Florida was attacked by an arsonist on Saturday, June 28, 2014. Shortly after their Open Gym ended, the fire was intentionally started in the middle of the gym and the smoke and water damage has shut the school down. They are currently operating their summer camp program out of a local church and looking for a temporary facility to reopen the class and team programs.
Their insurance coverage did not cover the loss and any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Xcel Training Camp
The Region 8 Committee has decided to cancel the 2014 Xcel Training Camp. We only have 18 athletes and 3 volunteers signed up. We hope to be able to offer this camp in the future.
It is with a very sad heart that I tell you that Hoylene Noble, USA Gymnastics Region 8 Administrative Committee from 1987 to 1997 and Georgia State Committee Chairman from 1977 to 1987, passed away Saturday, June 21, 2014 after a short hospital stay for heart condition.
Service is Wednesday, June 25th with visitation 1:00-3:00 at Sam Jones United Methodist Church, Cartersville, GA. Service follows at 3:00. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made to Region 8 USA Gymnastics for the Tim Rand Legends Fund.
Please make checks payable to Region 8 USAG. Please write TRLF on memo/for line of check. Mail to 394 Stonebridge Road, Birmingham, AL. 35210. The Tim Rand Legends Fund was developed to provide a way for the families and friends of loved ones who devoted their lives to the wonderful sport of gymnastics to contribute in their memory. The Tim Rand Legends Fund supports the athletes by paying their entry fee to their national competition each year. We have been honored to be able to pay these entry fees for our athletes for the past 5 years.
All sympathy cards should be mailed to Hoylene's son Scott Noble. 126 Williams Street, Ringgold, GA. 30736.
