Dear Rhythmic Coaches, Parents and Gymnasts,

Capital Rhythmics Parents Association of Germantown, MD is hosting our IX annual Capital Challenge Rhythmic
Gymnastics Invitational on April 20th – 22nd of 2012, and we would like to extend an invitation for your Rhythmic club to attend.
This year the competition will be held at the Gymnasium of the University of the District of Columbia. The Gym boasts very high ceilings and multiple viewing areas. The University of DC is located in the beautiful area of the US Capital, just a couple of Metro stops from the U.S. Capitol and the White House, within walking distance to many area restaurants, the National Zoo, many Embassies, and museums. It is easily accessible from all DC airports and other places of interest.
We are inviting teams from around the country and throughout the world, and we anticipate a great turnout out at all levels.
Hope to see you in Washington this April!!!
