    Has anyone been to one of their 2 day events this season? Wondering what they are awarding this year. We went last season and they gave the winners shoodies (it’s like a shirt but also a hoodie).

    I believe that is what it is this year. Not positive though. My daughter competed last month and received 1st place (2 day competition), and they still haven't received their gear.
    At our 2 day event last year, they awarded jackets.
    The year before, the disclaimer stated that they would be getting jackets. They received duffle bags instead. :-(
    Not impressed with this company at all.

    I know the year before, our gym got duffel bags (same year you did). I would rather the bag over the shoodie. That sucks that your CP hasn’t gotten her stuff yet.

    The duffel bag would definitely be better than the shirt. I doubt my CP would wear it. I remember everybody being so angry about getting the duffel bag when the disclaimer said it would be the jacket. I ended up loving that bag. My daughter never learned to love the bag. LOL

    Last year they gave jackets this year we received a thin T-shirt style hoodie. My daughter loved it because she has a lot of jackets but if you didn’t you might be disappointed. But they did do a full paid this year whereas they didn’t last year.

    We were at the a comp in November and our teams who took 1st still have not received their winnings. There was a rumor that the winnings were stolen.

    The rumor going around the comp is that the hoodies or jackets were stolen at the venue.
    Again just a rumor.

    It is what the gym owners were told. I don't believe them. Not that my daughter would wear it, but she wants it because she earned it. It isn't the first time that this EP has not gone through on their word and it won't be the last.

    Because they have lied in the past about what they were giving out as first place prizes. Went to a comp a couple years ago. Even early on Sunday morning, it said jackets would be given. I think when they opened up their boxes, they must have seen duffle bags were sent instead. So they updated their website and said duffle bags were the prize. So many crying kids from multiple gyms. They were really disappointed. Kids want jackets, not bags. I understand that in the grand scheme of things, this really isn't a big deal. But to those kids, it was a big deal.
    And about these prizes that were "stolen." Who steals this? I can't even imagine how many boxes there were. And they were all stolen?? I don't buy it. And if they were brought inside the venue, there had to have been security cameras. The Rams used to play at this venue. And it has been almost 2 months and still no replacement. Not holding my breath.
