The annual Astronaut Dave Brown Memorial Gymnastics Invitational will take place in the College of William and Mary’s Kaplan Arena Dec. 12-13. The event, hosted by Williamsburg Gymnastics, draws athletes from the region to participate in a sanctioned USA Gymnastics Junior Olympic competition.
The competition acts as a fundraiser for the Dave Brown Memorial endowment. Brown ‘78 was a member of the men’s gymnastics team. In 2003, he was one of seven crewmates lost during the Columbia space shuttle tragedy.
