Due to flooding from last night’s rain, Warwick Gymnastics have been forced to cancel their Christmas Carnival tomorrow.
Warwick Gymnastics posted earlier this morning stating that their gym was flooded and training for the day was cancelled.
They posted hours later stating that the carnival tomorrow would have to be cancelled too, with refunds worked out through individual clubs.
Coby Walker from Warwick Gymnastics stated that the competition was a small, friendly competition that was “a bit of fun for the kids”.
About 100 kids were expected to attend, with kids travelling from Toowoomba and other areas outside the region.
“They’re all devastated,” Coby said. “They were really looking forward to it.”
The carnival was to be the last competition for the kids this year.
Coby stated that they will have to cancel training this week too, as it takes a week for the mats to dry.
However, the flooding may well have destroyed the mats and new ones will most likely need to be purchased.
With the damage to facilities and equipment, and some fees still needing to be paid for the cancelled carnival, the impact of the flooding will be quite significant.
