Announcement The detailed announcement will be made in the August splitter. Artistic gymnastics: silver over silver for Andri Stacher Andri Stacher's collection of silver medals is complete: He also finished second in the last competition of the season. Lars Engeli was delighted with the bronze medal. Eastern Switzerland Cup After the official season is over and the juniors only have the Swiss Championships in Neuchâtel at the beginning of June, the winners of the Eastern Switzerland Cup were honored in Maienfeld. In this evaluation, the best gymnasts of the five competitions Fürstenland Cup (Wil), Rheintal Cup (Widnau), Thurgauer Kunstturncup (Frauenfeld), Schaffhausen Youth Cup (Schaffhausen) and Heidiland Cup (Maienfeld) are celebrated. The Aadorfer Andri Stacher (Frauenfeld), who trains in the RLZ OST, was able to maintain second place in program 3. With the best horizontal bar exercise in his program, he received 76,400 points and won silver. The fact that Stacher also wins silver in the overall standings of the Eastern Switzerland Cup is a logical conclusion after the young talent has won the silver medal in every competition of the season. Heidiland Cup Just like for Stacher, the stars were also favorable for Lars Engeli (program 2), who won the bronze medal at the Heidiland Cup. With the second best floor and horizontal bar exercise, the 11-year-old Steckborn scored 76.975 points.

11 Altnau: Good atmosphere in individual and pair competitions Anyone who wants to collect points while bouncing the ball needs endurance and strength. “The individual and pair competition is an ideal competition for women and men from 25 to 80 years of age. It can be carried out as a gymnastics lesson with the whole club without much effort. That's why the competition should be presented in a course, I learned it from my colleague, ”said one participant. On May 30th the TG single and pair competition took place in Altnau. Mani Aeberhard from TGTV, Hildegard Hofmann and the referee team ensured sporty and fair competition conditions. 46 men fight for points in the individual competition The individual competition consists of the eight disciplines of floorball slalom, gymnasts play SWISSLOS at Thurgau paying stations, shot put, jump rope, basket throw, long jump, obstacle course, meter run and mat throwing.

13 High level at the TGM in club gymnastics in Erlen In the hottest summer weather, over 60 clubs competed for the Thurgau championship title in club gymnastics on Sunday, June 7th. At the competition in Erlen, the team aerobics were particularly surprising. The level was exceptionally high. Over half of all participating clubs in team aerobics secured grades over 9 points out of a possible 10. It is well known that Thurgau and Frauenfeld have been a top Swiss team aerobics club for years. The Frauenfeld women achieved the final grade of 9.74. However, that was only enough for second place. Dussnang-Oberwangen overtook them in the final round with a grade of 9.75. Guntershausen placed third. The fact that fourth-placed Uttwil missed the finals with a sensational 9.63 shows that you can't afford to make any mistakes in the Thurgau team aerobics competitions. "That is bitter," says Lisa Sallmann, the technical director of the STV Uttwil. She locates the shortcoming in the difficulty of the demonstration. It has to be extremely high in order to be able to keep up in Thurgau. “We will adapt our program,” she said. Eschlikon top Overall, the gymnastics club and the Eschlikon equipment group were particularly convincing when it came to the various machines. With a victory on the school uneven bars, a second place on the parallel bars and in the equipment combination and third place on the ground, in the jump and on the swing rings, the village was represented on all equipment on the podium. "We have a good youth development program," said the senior gymnast of the Eschlikon gymnastics club, Patrick Fanchini.Therefore, the three Eschliker gymnastics clubs could always deliver very good results. Gymnastics with the usual consistency As in previous years, the Kreuzlingen gymnastics group won in gymnastics without hand-held equipment with a grade of 9.6. In Gymnastik Kleinfeld, Märwil and Dussnang-Oberwangen fought head-to-head. March

15 wil finally won the title with a lead of 0.4 points. The Kreuzlingen gymnastics group was able to prevail in the youth category. She won with 9.41. Märwil won the 35+ category with 9.39 in gymnastics. Zihlschlacht and Märwil strong in athletics Championships were also awarded in six athletic disciplines and in the pendulum relay. Zihlschlacht defended last year's titles in high jump and shot put. As in the previous year, the Märwil gymnastics team had to admit defeat in the stone jog, which achieved the highest score of 10. The gymnasts from Neukirch-Egnach won the long jump and the pendulum relay. The title Publication Dates 2015 No. Editorial deadline appears on 7 Wednesday, August 5, August 21, 8 Wednesday, September 9, September 25, 9 Wednesday, October 7, October 23 in the Schleuderball, the gymnastics club Neuwilen, also with the highest grade of 10, secure. Heat caused problems Over 60 clubs with around 1500 gymnasts took part in the most prestigious event of the Thurgau Gymnastics Association this year. The hot temperatures bothered many gymnasts. The organizers therefore decided to hold the finals in the floor discipline in the hall. The remaining disciplines were nevertheless carried out as usual in the open field in front of an impressive crowd. Competition director Rahel Merk-Zimmermann is satisfied: "Everything went smoothly." As a tried and tested organizer, Zihlschlacht was responsible for the facilities in Erlen in cooperation with the Thurgau Gymnastics Association. Thanks to the support of the main sponsors Coop and Thurgauer Kantonalbank, the gymnasts were completely satisfied after the event.

16 Thurgau Stone Punch Championship Züblin for the fifth time The Thurgau Stone Punch Championship in Erlen was well attended with over 200 participants. Hannes Züblin won the men's active category and Tamara Baumgartner was victorious in the women's category. Züblin with the best distance The 30-year-old Zihl butcher Hannes Züblin won the active category with a nationally notable best distance of 11.01 meters with the 12.5 kilo stone. "I'm happy about my fifth championship title," said the Oberthurgauer, satisfied with the result. The brother of heptathlete Linda Züblin convinced with explosive acceleration and push-off technique. His father had already dominated the scene in the 1980s. The gymnastics genes seem to be inheritable. Women on the advance Stone setting is very popular with women. The starting list recorded 62 entries in the active category. In the final, Tamara Baumgartner swung the 6-kilo stone with a top distance of 9.76 meters. Integrated in cantonal gymnastics event The championship is held together with the club championship. This type of event helps ensure that the fields of participants are very well filled.

17 The first cantonal game day hunter's ball took place in Sulgen On Saturday, May 31, the Thurgau Gymnastics Association organized the first cantonal game day hunter's ball together with STV Hauptwil-Gottshaus and MR Hauptwil. The Thurgau masters come from Balterswil, Dussnang-Oberwangen, Zihlschlacht and Bett-wiesen. «Just play!» it echoes from the loudspeakers over the sports facilities in Sulgen. 16 children jump to one of the three judges. 16 pairs of eyes look at him intently. And then leaps of joy and tears are very close together. On matchday Jägerball Jugend around 1400 children between the ages of six and nine competed for points. Around 600 games were played and at the end of the day the winners and thus also the Thurgau champions in the respective category were determined. Exciting until the end "Up until a year ago there were district tournaments where the teams qualified for the day of the final," explains Iganz Gross, responsible for the youth matchday. Unfortunately, the officials are missing and so it was decided to organize a game day for the entire canton and also to play for the Thurgau championship title in the categories girls A and B and boys A and B. In the morning, the four eventual winners put themselves in a good starting position and won their group games. At the finals in the late afternoon, the duel for first and second place in category A for boys turns out to be particularly exciting. Balterswil won against Neukirch-Egnach very thinly, with only one goal ahead, thus securing the coveted trophy. Märwil is happy about the victory. Double function Sepp Sutter was to be found in a double function. On the one hand he was OC President on the part of the organizer and on the other hand he was responsible for the “Jägerball” from the Thurgau Gymnastics Association. Fewer officials means more work not only for them, but also for the organizer. "For a cantonal event, of course, you need much larger infrastructures, a more efficient festival restaurant and more helpers from the organizing association," said Gross. Whether cantonal or district hunter ball game day, the children and visitors seemed to like it, because the atmosphere at the Sulgen sports facility was great. A big thank you to the two organizing clubs, Turnverein Hauptwil-Gottshaus and Herrenriege Hauptwil. Brigitte Süess 17

21 Märstetten: The youth gymnastics festival an occasion for enthusiastic fans After seven years, a cantonal youth gymnastics festival finally took place again in mid-June. Around 3000 children and young people from almost all the clubs in the Thurgau Gymnastics Association took part and populated the sports facilities in Märstetten. The weather cooperated, the organization was excellent, so it was an absolutely successful gymnastics festival for the Thurgau youngsters. High standing individual competition On Saturday it was for category B, i. H. those born between 2004 and 2008, as well as for the little ones from children's gymnastics (KiTu) seriously.

22 had to show at least one athletic discipline. 14 clubs certainly used this opportunity to attract young talent for their active clubs. It was astonishing what great demonstrations the girls and boys had already presented on the machines. This is certainly also a great achievement of the youth leaders who invest a lot of time in such club presentations. Riegenstafette as a highlight All participating clubs were allowed to take part in the traditional Riegenstafette at the end of the competitions. Loudly supported by the large number of fans from the little sister to the grandfather, the children ran for the series and category victories, which their short legs gave. In category B, the girls from Zihlschlacht and the boys from Schlatt swung out above.

E.g. the ball target throw, in which the child had to throw tennis balls and the parent had to catch them in a bucket. With no fewer than 25 pairs, Gachnang-Islikon was also the noticeably largest group here. Wrestling / wrestling competition Integrated into this youth gymnastics festival was a wrestling / wrestling competition. 66 boys and even eight girls competed in the sawdust rings, which were surrounded by many spectators. 22 The fun factor was not neglected during the water transport. The girls thrilled with gymnastics demonstrations.

In the girls' category, Lara Wirth from Uttwil clearly beat her club colleague Louisa Kurzi (55.2) with 58.1. Group competition In order to bridge the time between the different parts of the competition, a group competition was offered to all ranks. A team consisted of six gymnasts who completed fun disciplines such as fly-killers tennis, blind cow, slalom run, rifle shooting or a watercourse at six posts. As a reward, all participants received a small instant price. Much praise for the organizers Marco Moser, the Illhart-Sonterswil youth leader, was enthusiastic about the organization of the youth gymnastics festival: “Everything worked smoothly, you hardly ever had to wait, all the competition areas were close by and the children were delighted with the music in between . " Erika Keller from the TGTV competition management was also enthusiastic: “It was an absolutely ingeniously organized event with great facilities, good and clear announcements, all the children were happy”.

We also received a lot of support from the community and the school community. I am very happy that everything went so calmly, smoothly and without major accidents. It was a great party, the effort was worth it! " Gabi Wüthrich, Jürg Kocherhans Photos: Mario Gaccioli Complete ranking list under At the pendulum relay, the youngsters can go out of their way.

Now sociability and the cultivation of camaraderie are in the foreground. Franconia for youth development At the beginning, those present remembered the 19 gymnastics comrades who had died since the last rural community in 2014. In the absence of the bag master Ernst Gerber, scribe Thomas Roth read the annual accounts. With income of Fr and expenses of Fr, she closed with a loss of Fr. Last year 2000 francs were donated to various friendly organizations for honoring the elders of the conference. There are twelve gymnastics veterans, twelve unique gymnastics careers (from left to right): Jean Widmer, Kurt Iseli, August Keller, Albert Sieber, Emil Greuter, Hans Keller, Willi Sonderegger, Walter Holderegger, Kurt Hennauer, Adolf Leubli, Ernst Bürgisser and Paul Hasler . 24 images: Andreas Taverner

After the break, Vice Chairman Hans-Ulrich Wartenweiler took on the nicest item on the agenda: honoring the elders. All those present between 1935 and 1926 received a present. Twelve gymnasts born in 1925 and older were allowed to receive the congratulations on stage with a jar of honey from the hands of the ladies of honor. Willi Sonderegger, Weinfelden, born in 1921, was honored as the conference elder.Hans-Ulrich Wartenweiler was able to read out a long list of 54 new members.

Robert Gasser new in the chairmanship brought greetings to Claudia Schreiner, Vice-President of the Thurgau Gymnastics Association and Hanspeter Frei, chairman of the Veterans Association of the Zurich Gymnastics Association on behalf of the befriended neighboring cantons. Arthur Kämpf has resigned from the chairmanship of this rural community after 15 years in office. Robert Gasser, Weinfelden, was proposed and elected as a new member. Since this year is an election year, Hans-Ulrich Wartenweiler, Vice Chairman, Ernst Gerber, Säckelmeister, and Thomas Roth, Schreiberling, were confirmed in their offices for a further three years in globo. After one year, Ueli Bührer also made himself chairman available for another three years. Hans-Ulrich Wartenweiler thanked the chairman for his willingness and for his careful guidance with a sweet gift from Gottlieben. Arthur Kämpf was thanked for his long commitment to the gymnastics veterans' association Thurgau and was given a voucher for a boat trip on the Untersee / Rhine including pocket money. Memories exchanged Since last year the resigned long-time chairman Hugo Wipf could not be present because of a hospital stay, his honor as honorary chairman was postponed to this rural community. With great applause, the gymnastics veterans thanked him for his great commitment. By singing the gymnast's song, the chairman was able to conclude the business part of the meeting. At the subsequent aperitif, donated by the Felben-Wellhausen community, memories were exchanged. The chairmanship thanks all veterans for their participation and wishes all the best, especially good health, and is looking forward to the Landsgemeinde 2016 in Salenstein. Ueli Buehrer 25
