NEW gymnastics club space
you for your patience while we work through the process required to expand our
club! It has not been an easy road, as
most of you know.
it was announced that Giant Tiger was coming to the mall, it was originally
explained to us that we would need to leave our current location for this to
happen. Due to a very short time frame
to respond to this, we jumped the gun for fear of being removed from our month
to month lease at the mall. We entered
into an agreement for our new space before we made initial contact with the
City of Weyburn and though we did not have formal approval at first, we worked
with our City officials to get the necessary permits in place very shortly
to our usage of the new building space, the zoning changed on the building. This required a whole new set of renovation plans
and approval process. We are thankful
for our City of Weyburn Building Department who worked on our behalf and
liaised with Provincial officials to get approval of our bid to reduce the
occupancy size of the space. Now that
the reduction has been approved, we are working with the City, our plumbers,
and our construction workers to get the rest of the items checked off the list. The costs of complying with fire code and
minimum requirements for washrooms has been a challenge both financially and
time-wise, but with our ever-expanding club we know that this project is worth
our time and effort.
had hoped to be in the space much sooner, but so much of the expansion process
is out of our hands - all we can do is work hard with our partners to solve
problems and keep moving forward to grow the best gymnastics club for our
community. We continue to work hard and
we know in the end our efforts - your efforts - will be worth it. We appreciate the support of our club
families, our coaches, and our community in helping us to build a strong future
for gymnastics and cheerleading in Weyburn.
