Bravo Katie and Naomi!

06 November 2017

Katie went to her friend Naomi’s on Sunday afternoon and the two of them spent 5-hours outside working on their gymnastics, and only came in for 15-minutes to have a hot-chocolate and warm-up their feet! They helped each other out with technical tips and spotted one another and ended up both making huge improvements while succeeding in performing a handstand into a back-handspring-stepout, linked into another back-handspring-stepout. (Katie assures me that gym people understand that!) She came home with a massive smile on her face and was really pumped up at being able to link back-flicks and some other new moves, and it’s been a while since I last saw her so animated!

Meanwhile Millie was playing golf against the Burhill girls and she needed to give her first speech as Girls Junior Captain. For her first go it went pretty well and she was happy to get the first one out of the way.

My friend Paul (Men’s Captain this year) helped me find some new clubs and I bought a ‘like-new’ used set of Mizuno 850 forged irons with graphite shafts and managed to trade-in my old set, which was a real bonus. I’m taking a few lessons and looking to come back next summer ‘re-tooled’ and ready to make some progress. (man, I’ve got it bad!)

Gill is off to Toulouse this weekend to visit her friend Catherine and she’s looking forward to a fantastic weekend while Millie plays golf both Saturday and Sunday, and Katie and I will be hanging-out together. Stay tuned!
