The Red River Gymnastics Records span the years 1988-1997. The collection consists of two distinct series, each arranged alphabetically by folder title. The Dakota Gold series consists of Dakota Gold Gymnastics records that predate that organization’s merger with Red River Valley Gymnastics. Items in this series date from 1989-1992. Items in the second series, entitled Red River Valley Gymnastics, date from 1978-1997 and document RRVG activities both before and after the Club’s merger with Dakota Gold. Collection materials include meeting minutes, correspondence, newsletters, financial records, membership lists, newspaper clippings, and schedules of events. Class registrations, tryouts, competitions, fundraising activities and policy manuals are also included.
A scrapbook containing pictures of students, coaches, and gymnastic facilities and newspaper clippings was placed on the shelves adjacent to the collection. The clippings document major events, including the building of new facilities and the merging of Dakota Gold with Red River Valley Gymnastics. Both Dakota Gold and Red River Valley Gymnastics are represented in the scrapbook.
NOTE: Additional documents related to Red River Valley Gymnastics were destroyed as a result of the 1997 Red River Flood.
