Trail Gymnstics Club remembers coach Buccini

RDKB and Trail Gymnastics honoured former coach Chris Buccini with a new trophy case in the Greater Trail Community Centre.

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and Trail Gymnastic club honoured former coach Chris Buccini with a new and fitting addition to the gym at the Greater Trail Community Centre (GTCC).

After more than 50 years of accumulating ribbons, medals, trophies, and plaques, the club, with the assistance of RDKB  director Mark Daines and the fine workmanship of Dan Vancougnett, finally has a place to showcase its awards.

“The building was painted last summer and Dan built a beautiful trophy case for us to display our wares from competitions dating back into the 80’s when Chris Buccini was building up the club,” said Trail coach Nicola Marynowski.

Buccini passed away suddenly last year after celebrating 50 years of Trail Gymnastics, and the gym at the GTCC was renamed in his honour. His legacy continues to inspire young athletes, with the club  now counting over 400 members this year that will undoubtedly add to the collection.

“He would be very proud to see his past gymnasts’ honoured with their awards displayed in this fitting manner,” added Marynowski.

The Trail Gymnastics Club is also offering six weeks of summer camps starting July 7.
