Happy Friday Peakers!

It’s hard to believe are almost through July and hurtling into the back half of the year…going to need to start planning the Xmas Party soon… 😉 But before then there’s still plenty happening at Peak, so let’s bring you all up to date!

We have a whole new line of PHRESSHH Peak Merch for you guys this winter, including Beanies (which will look super dope on the slopes of Mount Buller… Just sayin’) and Team Peak apparel! To view the biggest range we have ever created head to Retail | Peak Gymnastics | No Gimmicks. Just Knowledge to order! Order’s will close Weds 9th of August, so get in quick!

Social Event: Mt. Buller Snow Trip 1st – 3rd September

After about 7 years of having this idea, and months of back and forth planning, we have finally booked a house in Mansfield for the weekend of the 1st – 3rd of September! The plan is to head up Friday evening, get settled and have a family breakfast Saturday, before potentially some outdoor activities Saturday, twilight boarding on the night of the 2nd, then return to our accommodation in Mansfield. Sunday we will hit the slopes for the full day before driving back the night of the 3rd.

We will be employing a first paid best dressed approach to the Snowtrip that skews sleeping preference towards those staying both nights and intending to ski or snowboard on the mountain. With that said we are very much eager to have as many legends attend this trip as possible and wouldn’t mind having extra people crash at the house (we’d just need to bring some blow up mattresses). If you fit these parameters, please transfer $300 to the below account to secure your spot!

Furthermore, if crashing isn’t your jam we’d be happy to share our location in Mansfield and if a second group would like to book another location close to ours we’d be more than happy to use our accommodation as a home base for activities before heading up the mountain!

Q2 Charity Donation: RSPCA Rescue Team & Million Paws Walk

Whilst the weather was pretty ordinary for the Million Paws work, it was a great day out filled with lots of loving puppers (and even some kitters!) circling Albert Park lake. Certainly recommend it next year for those who weren’t able to attend, certainly gets your weekly dose of wholesome activity into one event! You know what else is wholesome? The fact that by training at Peak through this period you helped contribute to the $465.50 which Peak is donating to the RSPCA Recue Team!

Q3 Charity: Walking with Ava

As mentioned in our previous update, for our next quarterly charitable efforts we will be donating a portion of everyone’s membership to Walking with Ava.

You may or may not be aware but sadly Ava Costa, a 15-year-old Australian National Team Gymnast, experienced a devastating training accident on April 7th, 2023, resulting in a spinal cord injury.

Despite the severity of the injury, Ava remains a positive and inspiring young woman. As the youngest of four siblings, with three older brothers, Ava has always displayed a strong-willed and determined personality.

We have no doubt that the same qualities that have helped Ava succeed in gymnastics will also aid in her recovery from this injury. Her positive attitude, infectious smile, and sense of humor continue to inspire her doctors, nurses, physios, and occupational therapists.

As a member of our gymnastics community, it seems only right to try and help Ava on her journey back to health. Whilst we will be making our team contribution, we encourage you all to dig deep to contribute individually where possible by heading to this link: Donate | Walkingwithava

You can support Ava further and follow her determination and progress via her Insta page found here: https://instagram.com/walkingwithava?igshid=NTc4MTIwNjQ2YQ==

Upcoming Competitions:

Team Peak will be in action again on Sunday the 13th of August! Whilst they haven’t set a firm start time as yet, it is slated to be in the arvo, and much more local than the Maffra Comp at (Marto’s junior club) Knox Gymnastics Club in Ferntree Gully! Help support the competitive guys in training, and get around them at comp in the lead up to the Australian Masters in October!
