Let’s Get Shay to the OTC!

July 13, 2015 blog

Hey Tribe! So as some of you know, Shay has been noticed as a great up and coming weightlifter and has been invited to be on Team USA at a 15u international invitational at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO. Then after that she will be at a week long weightlifting camp where she will be working hard to improve her lifts and receive coaching from some of the best coaches around. This is an awesome opportunity and the next best step in Shay’s weightlifting career!

Shay and her family thought there might be a chance that she would be invited but it all depended on spots they had open and how she performed at the National meet a couple weeks ago. With that being said, it costs money to attend the camp and Shay’s mom, Vicki will be headed over there for a few days as well to be by her side.

We wanted to do anything we could as a Tribe to support the Carlock family since this trip was kind of a last minute one and they just took the whole family and coach Meagan to Minnesota just a couple short weeks ago. The money will go towards a flight for both of them, cost for the camp for the week and food. There will be a donation box set up at the front kiosk for this whole week if you feel so inclined to donate anything to help get her there, every little bit helps!

Let’s do anything we can to help support Shay’s dreams!

    Does southwest fly where she is going? Give me details, and I will see if I can help with at least one way with airmiles.

    Yay Shay!! What an awesome opportunity! When are they going? And it’s all in Colorado Springs, right? Like Vicki, I may have some options that would help with the flights – either United or Alaska.

    Vicki and Tori: thanks so much for the offer, unfortunately we already had to book flights because there were so little seats left. Really appreciate it.
