Local gymnasts are set to compete against hundreds of others from all over Alberta in April.

Julie Inkster is a member of the Norfort Board of Directors, has two children who compete, and says that local support for events like this make a big difference.
“We had a fantastic showing at the Canadian Western Summer Games that we hosted here this summer and we hope to see that local support again. It made the kids just be better and be happier, it was fantastic,” says Inkster.
