The clubs are looking at having this as an annual event with Ferry heading North next pre-season.


 Men's Artistic Gymnastics Summer Camp

I just wanted to say a big thank you to Hugh and to the DECSC for allowing us to use your mini buses for our Men's Artistic Gymnastics Summer Camp. It was incredibly generous of you and we are all very grateful. I've attached a couple of photos for you.

The camp was a huge success with 36 boys and 10 coaches taking part over the 3 days. In addition we also had 6 guests making an appearance including: the 2006 Commonwealth Pommel finalist - Andrew Mackie, sports psychologist - Simon Petrie, and the British National Development Coach - Sam Hunter. We managed to fit in 15 hours of training, 2 evenings of BBQs and even a campfire to toast some marshmallows. Transport between the gym and the accommodation was always going to be a challenge for so many gymnasts and coaches but with your help it all worked out really.

Once again, thank you and best regards for the future.

PETER OUT? ENERGETIC MR. RYDER IS SELDOM IN!

 

DECSC Vice Chairman Peter Ryder continues to be a busy man!

 

As well as a very demanding day job and his active connection with the DECSC and Ferry Athletic YFC Peter somehow manages to find time to also be involved in Junior football; last season (2011-12 ) he was the Assistant Manager of Blairgowrie Football Club.

 

Peter has now left Blairgowrie and recently moved to Coupar Angus FC. “Coupar Angus did not win a match last season,” commented Peter, “so there’s a big challenge ahead. We will be focusing on youth this season and hopefully the new team will manage to achieve one or two decent results along the way.”

 

One thing’s for sure. The club which gave the great Alan Gilzean his start in football could be in for better times if Peter’s enthusiasm is infectious.
