Here is the link

Compulsory material will be mailed by June 10.
Mark Your Calendars !
JO Compulsory Master Workshop- East will be held May 31-June 2, 2013 in Orlando. Our state will be sending representatives so that they can assist in the training of others.
There will be two in-state training opportunities for the new compulsory routines. The weekend of
June 14-16 there will be training in Greenville and the weekend of June 27-29 there will be training in Salem.
Both of these will be great opportunities to prepare for the season (as well as the tests!) Sign up on Meetmaker if you plan to attend.
The Region 8 Congress will be held June 21-23, 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia Hotel in Atlanta, GA.
We have the opportunity to get a discount on our registration fees if we send one group registration form in from NC-NAWGJ.
The amount that it will cost per judge depends on how many judges sign up for the group.
If you would like to be part of the group registration, please let Terri Costa know via email no later than February 28, 2012.
Congratulations to Diane Thompson who will be inducted into the Region 8 Hall of Fame at the Regional Congress this year!
What I learned this weekend...
It was suggested to me that we have a space to share some things that occur at meets that are clarifications or new things learned. Anyone can send
suggestions for this section to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them. Here are some items that came up at the GGI meet.
If a coach actually coaches the gymnast through the routine ( for instance, says "tuck jump" to a gymnast who forgets what to do next) the chief
judge should take the deduction on this routine rather than just giving a warning.
On the Xcel bronze requirements for BB, the words say "One acro element or "A" VP (Non-flight) must start & finish on the beam."
Can this element be a scale? The answer is no. It must be an acro skill. It could be an acro element from the compulsory routines or an acro "A" VP
(non-flight) that starts and finishes on the beam.
NC Meet Schedule
The 2012-2013 season is in full swing! All judges are requested to keep their availability up to date
so that assignments for all meets can be completed.

While not all these gyms participate in competitions, the number of gyms
which do participate is always growing. Thus, the need for more judges! If you
