General Meeting ~ May 19th @ 1 pm
"Flight of the Falcon - The American Sokol Performance Team in Prague"
presented by Tom Pajer, Team Coordinator
In July 2006, ten very talented gymnasts from Sokols across the United
States traveled to Prague to participate in the week-long XIV All-Sokol Slet
(meeting). Among the 20,000 athletes present at the slet, the American
Sokol Performance Team, under the direction of Tom Pajer, stood out with
their award-winning exhibitions.
At CSAGSI's General Meeting on May 19th, 2007 starts at: 1 pm.
Mr. Tom Pajer will be our guest speaker. Through the medium of a DVD, those
in attendance will be able to get a glimpse of this extraordinary event. If
you were unable to be in Prague to witness the inspiring program, you will
not want to miss this meeting.
Tom will share the member (age 14 - 30) selection procedures and discuss the
team's preparations in all phases of gymnastics (plus some Czech language
lessons provided in part by our own Bob Baumruk). The team was formed in
September 2005 and performed to a worldwide, enthusiastic audience at the
final competition (slet) in Prague in July 2006.
Following is excerpt from the thank-you note that the American Sokol
Performance Team sent to CSAGSI. "We feel that we positively promoted and
represented the American Sokol Organization and the United States. Thanks
to you, we were able to spread the American Sokol spirit everywhere. Our
experience will help grow the American Sokol and encourage Sokol movement in
the United States." Their performance will really phenomenal.
