Golden Age Gym Festival: preparation of the next edition
A few days ago, before the 2012 edition of the Golden Age Gym Festival started, Alberto Claudino Loureiro Nunes, vice-president of the Technical Committee Gymnastics for All of the European Union of Gymnastics and member of the Golden Age "Task Force", went to Toulouse, France to participate in a preliminary meeting with the local Organising Committee of the 4th Golden Age Gym Festival 2014.
The visit of the sites proposed for the event and the meetings with the representatives of the French Federation and the LOC took place in a very friendly atmosphere.
The city of Toulouse indeed presents very good conditions and services to host the Festival in 2014!
The French Gymnastics Federation, the regional gymnastics association, the local clubs and the municipality are really ready to commit themselves to organise in 2014 a Golden Age Gym Festival which will be unforgettable!
This new day in Montecatini is placed under the sign of the GALA; specific workshops, rehearsal and beginning of the gala at 18h30, followed by a dinner and a dancing evening.
