To Whom It May Concern,

I wanted to thank you for putting on such a great meet. My daughter, Jennifer from (Power In Motion), has been coming to your meet since 2nd grade. She is now a senior and this will be her 11th time at Chicago Style! Your meet was her very first real meet! Every year, it was the meet she looked forward to the most. We have watched your meet grow over the years, but you still keep it great fun and focus on the girls. I want to thank you for the great memories as my daughter wraps up her competitive career in gymnastics. We hope your meet keeps going strong! Thanks for all the great times!

Sincerely, Susan J.

thank you for hosting such an wonderful meet. The girls at gym kinetics always have a wonderful time.

Hello, let me start by saying what a wonderful experience we had at Chicago Style. For such a huge event, it was run quite efficiently. Thank You! I am from Youngstown Gymnastics Center and the girls love the leos.
***********************************************************************
This was our first IGI meet and I did not know that she would receive a leo or to check the size. This was a fabulous gymnast gift and she was thrilled to receive it.
*******************************************************************
I also would like to share how much we enjoyed our weekend in Chicago. The atmosphere of your meet was excellent. My daughter cut her finger at the children's museum the day before she competed. When I asked a person at the door for medicated ointment to help the healing start faster, he was very nice and took my daughter to get her finger all fixed up. It made her feel better and me as well. Thank you! The shuttle to and from the Marriott worked great and we never waited long for a bus to arrive. And the girls LOVED the balloon gymnast:)

Hello,

To whom it may concern:
 
I brought the Pittsburgh Northstars gymnastics team to your invitational for the first time this year.  We had gymnasts from Levels 8 - 10.  I just wanted to share that we had a great experience.  The Chicago Style was very professional and very well run:  the venue, the smooth organization of the sessions, the high level of competition, the friendliness of the meet directors and volunteer staff, the hotel, transportation, extra events for coaches and gymnasts, awards, etc.  All in all it was a fun and rewarding competition in a beautiful and exciting city!
 
Thanks for all your efforts!
