Chimo Gymnastics hosts Pajama Meet

Chimo Gymnastics hosts its 19th annual Pajama Meet Feb. 10 and 11 at the Comox Recreation Centre.

Come and watch some of our amazing local athletes compete. There are 291 athletes from 10 clubs from across the island attending this year’s meet. For some, this is the first meet of the season, so showing up in a relaxed pajama party environment helps athletes ease into the competitive season. Please join us and cheer for our 48 talented local athletes as they showcase their abilities.

There will be a fundraising concession available, so bring some cash and your appetites to purchase snacks to raise money for these athletes. This event would not be possible without support from local businesses, or from the efforts of coaches and parents.

For some of the athletes, this is their second meet of the season. Head coach Toni Vance took six athletes to Winterfest in Coquitlam for their first off-island competition of the year. Mya Drobot came second all around in her level and age category. Sidney Prangnell (2nd on vault), Lauren Quinn (1st on vault), Avery Phoenix (2nd on vault), Thea Parker (2nd on beam) and Kenzie Pritoula (1st on beam) all placed in the top 10 of their categories after moving up one or two levels from last year.
