Gymnastics slated Feb. 1-4 in Newport

NEWPORT — Gymnastics fans will turn somersaults over a meet that will draw scores of top athletes and parents to the Newport Recreation Center Feb. 1-4 for the 2019 Pacific Edge Invitational.

Sponsored by the Salem-based Athletic Edge, the organization rates gymnastics as “the basis of all sports.” Newport hotels are expected to be swamped by participants, who will hold a bonfire on the beach Saturday night. The organization, which serves young athletes ages 5-12, holds full-scale gymnastics meets and teaches one-day seminars on backhand springs, cartwheels and handstands.
