Bad Water

My thoughts and best wishes are with the people of Queensland. I hope you manage to find safety and comfort in these dangerous times.

I've seen some shocking images in the last 12 hours, and was informed this morning of All-Star Gymnastics in Toowoomba that, while all coaches and athletes were evacuated safely, lost a great deal (if not all) of their equipment due to high levels of water and mudflow. I am sure they would not be the only sporting club currently affected by the floods.

It is unfortunate that we in the other states cannot (yet) offer a great deal of assistance outside of aid donations and expressions of support.

If you would like to donate to the Queensland government's flood relief appeal, please follow this link.

Horrible images of the flash flooding this morning. Let's get the gymnastic community to all pull together to get the All stars Club back on it's feet again.
