Opening Ceremony/March-In Saturday (2/7/2015) approximately 5:00 PM

All gymnasts are invited to participate in our Opening Ceremony and March-In on Saturday night in the Center Gym.  Don’t miss our famous “balloon drop”!

A number of years ago we introduced the “Buckeye Classic Spirit Award” that was given out, to one visiting team, during our Opening Ceremonies. It turned out to be such a big hit that we have continued the tradition and will be doing so again this year. The award originated because every year more and more teams would come to the Opening Ceremonies “accessorized” in some way. So, we decided to give out an award to the team that showed the most “spirit”. This spirit can be demonstrated with accessories that the girls carry or wear on them. Please keep in mind a few restrictions: accessories that shed feathers or glitter are probably not the best idea. We need to keep the clean-up effort after the ceremony to a minimum so that the evening session can start on time. The judging will be based on originality and team participation. Have Fun with it and we look forward to seeing you all at the Opening Ceremonies on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at 5PM.

Admission

In 2015, Admission will once again be FREE OF CHARGE! So, bring the whole family and enjoy the show!

Vendors

There will be a variety of vendors on-hand throughout the weekend selling “gymnastics” related merchandise. We will have Leotards vendors as well as “Buckeye Classic” merchandise available.
