June 29, 2018 0

The European Federation of Baton Twirling Cup of Club Championships is taking place at Gormanston Park Sports Hall this weekend.  This evening at the Opening ceremony the the Irish contingent made up of members from Balbriggan, Balscadden, Stamullen, Dublin and Cork welcomed their twirling friends from Slovenia and Catalonia.

The Association of Baton Twirling Ireland would like to take this opportunity to welcome visitors to the championships and to the area and wish all of the athletes a fun weekend of competition.

Spectators witnessed a beautiful arrival of the EFBT flag carried by members of the Irish delegation. There was entertainment from the talented girls and boys from the Elbadri McAuley Baird School of Irish Dancing. The athletes then learned their fun dance which will be used over the weekend as part of the intervals!

As a celebration for the 5th EFBT Championships, athletes and members of each country attended a party after the formalities of the first evening of the championships.

A special good luck to everyone taking part and a special mention to local club St Mary’s Baton Twirlers and thanks again to the organising committee of the ABTI.
