Trampoline competition!

Don't forget the Giveaway!
Today was the biggest trampolining competition of the year, and we were the club that won the right to host it. There were major setbacks, but it turned out great in the end. I've been running round for weeks trying to organise this, and the last few days have been really hectic. It's also the first time in about 5 years that I have majorly lost my temper with someone. My co-host missed two alarms and 14 phone calls this morning, and arrived 2 and a half hours after the competition started, and it did not make me a happy bunny! Then the wireless network we were using to enter results went down, and it's a wonder I got on the trampoline at all. But I did:

 I was coming ninth after this round, but then this happened:

But I was happy I attempted the somersault, so that's all that counts. As a club we did really well, with 3 people (out of 10) qualifying for finals, in addition to the two who automatically qualify. And one of our member came first in her category.

In the end, the competition ran to time, all the problems were fixed and no one got hurt. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. Plus, my committee bought me a nice bottle of wine to say thank you for all the work I did, so everyone left happy.

  4. So, is trampoline a big thing in England? I mean, we have trampolines around here but I've never heard of a trampoline competition until you mentioned it.
