									The Scottish Open 2008. The University of Edinburgh.
                15th – 17th February

Hey everyone!

Ok so it’s nearly that time again, The 23rd Scottish Student Open! And the weekend you must
keep free is the 15th, 16th and 17th of February 2008. This year the proud hosts are the University
of Edinburgh.

This information pack aims to let you all know how to enter this year and provide a little bit of
information about the competition itself. The quicker you get your entries sent to us the better
chance you have of having them accepted. This is due to the fire regulations of the sports centre
we have had to cap the entries at 450 – (the same as last year) so send them now to avoid

Ok, so on to the competition itself. It all begins on Friday 15th February with training in the
evening so you can all recover from those journeys you may have had to make and get used to the
beds you will be bouncing on the next day. After that we will have a small welcome social at Vodka
Revolution where you are all more than welcome to come and have a few drinks.

Then on the Saturday we will have the main competition. In Scotland we have 4 categories –
Novice, Intermediate, Advanced and Elite (the routines are included later). Due to the fact that this
is also our 3rd of 4 League competitions there will be 2 winners in each category, the overall Open
winner and the winner in the closed competition (only involving Scottish University Students). After
the competition there will be a massive social at The Caves. This is a fantastic Scottish venue, but
make sure you know where you’re going as it’s a bit difficult to find if you don’t know Edinburgh!

Then on the Sunday when you are all nursing your hangovers, it will be time for serious syncro and
the highly anticipated Fancy Dress syncro. We would really like to encourage people to enter this
year’s Fancy Dress syncro. It’s a great way to have fun on the trampolines, and it’s a shame when
it’s only Edinburgh and Glasgow that can be bothered to join in!

So the question you are all now asking yourself is how do we enter?? Well you will find enclosed in
this pack everything you need to know, and the entry form can be downloaded from the website.
You must fill this in on your computer, print it out as soon as you can and send to me along with
entry fees, and any T-Shirts or social ticket orders at;

                             FAO Scottish Universities Trampoline
                                    Catherine Determann
                                   19 Ravenswood Avenue
                                           The Inch
                                          EH16 5SX

Your cheque(s) made payable to Scottish Student Trampolining must be included with your entries
and T-shirt orders. We will be accepting payment for the Syncro events on the Friday 15th at
training and of course on the Sunday 17th morning as well. The entry deadline has been set as
Monday 31st December 2007. Changes to entries will be accepted for 2 weeks after the closing
date. On Monday 14th January 2008 changes will no longer be accepted and only competitor
withdrawals will be allowed on the day of the event.

As always there will be T-shirts available to buy so you can remember the competition (or the
more probably the drinking) in years to come. The Logo was kindly designed by Fiona Cameron
from Aberdeen University and Tom Jeffs from Edinburgh University. An order form is included on a
separate page. Orders must be included with your entries, as we need to let our supplier know how
many t-shirts we need as soon as possible!!

This year’s social events are going to be very exciting. Tickets include entry to both the Friday and
Saturday night social events, amazing drinks deals, a ceilidh, DJ and dancing all night long – what

more could a bunch of trampolinists want?! All social tickets must be bought with entries as we
must get an accurate gauge of numbers for the venues.

Keep checking our website for up to date information in the coming weeks:

The next few pages include the program, routines, tariff sheets for elite performers and T-Shirt and
Social Ticket Order forms. The Entry form is an excel form that can be downloaded from the SUS
Website. Please fill it in on your computer and then print it out and post it to us. Remember to
include the appropriate number of judges and officials or we will not accept your entries.

Last year there were concerns that some of the SUS Trampoline rules were not followed. Please
could all clubs ensure they read the rules thoroughly before the event as we will not accept
ignorance as an excuse. We would particularly like to draw attention to the fact that in order to
promote fair competition we reserve the right to withdraw competitors from the event if we feel
they have been entered below their level. We trust captains to enter people appropriately, however
if this has not been the case the individual’s scores will register as a guest competitor and will not
be eligible to win a trophy or medal, or gain points for their University or Team. Such decisions will
be made by the Competition Organisers and the Chair of Judges for the appropriate group and
their decision will be FINAL.

Moving away from that sombre note we look forward to seeing all your entries pour through my
door and really cant wait to see you all at what should be a fantastic 23rd Scottish Universities
Trampoline Student Open.

Yours in Sport

Keir Stewart and Catherine Determann
Scottish Universities Trampoline Co-ordinators
