INFORMATION & SPECIFICS
ABOUT ME!
Hello!  Welcome to my site!  My name is Valynn.  I have been doing gymnastics for pretty much my entire life and have been collecting videos since the 1980s.   I really do love every part of gymnastics and am more than happy to share my collection with you! 
WOMEN, MEN OR RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS?
Almost all of my tapes are of WAG (women's artistic gymnastics), but I do have some mens competitions - mostly if they are combined, like in an American Cup or a "mixed" competition, in that case, they are specified.  There are no commercials on my videos.
VHS TAPES & DVDs
My VHS tapes are in the NTSC format; I can't tape or receive in PAL or SECAM.  My DVDs are recorded on DVD-R discs in the NTSC format, and I can play DVD-Rs and DVD+Rs in the same.  For quality purposes, I will only put up to 2 hours MAX onto one DVD.  For VHS I wouldn't suggest more than 4 hours.

VIDEOS FOR TRADE
I prefer to trade for DVD copies but will accept VHS tapes as I know not everyone has a DVD recorder.  But may I suggest you get one if you can - they are GREAT!!! 

With trading, I prefer to have one comp per DVD - unless they are the same year, or longer than 2 hours. This helps me with my filing system and is simply better quality - putting 6 hours on one DVD defeats the purpose of having DVDs.

I think it's only fair to trade for length of coverage - not competiition - as some comps are quite short and others are quite long.

VIDEOS FOR COST
I sell my comps for $3-$15 depending on quality and length, shipping included (via air-mail, or first class depending on weight) unless you want them delivered over night or something.    Most of them are $5; World Championships and longer comps are $7.   Some Olympics are $15.  It is best to email me what you'd like and I can give you a better idea of cost.   I will send DVDs unless you request VHS tapes.

Payment is to be sent and received before I will send any video to you.  

HOW CAN YOU BE SURE I'LL SEND THE VIDEOS?
You have my word for it, but if you would like a list of emailable references - feel free to ask!

MY RATING SYSTEM OF VIDEOS
My rating system is simple, but please keep in mind it is my opinion and I do take age of the video into consideration when giving it the rating.  I do ask that if you get a video from me and you think it should be rated differently than what I have it at, PLEASE let me know and I will change it!  Thanks!!

EXCELLENT = DIRECT TO DVD

GREAT = ORIGINAL TRANSFERRED TO DVD

GREAT/GOOD = NOT QUITE AS GOOD AS AN ORIGINAL, BUT CLOSE

GOOD = LACKING A LITTLE IN SHARPNESS OR COLOR .  PERHAPS A COPY OR SECOND COPY OF ORIGINAL

GOOD/OK = COLOR IS GOOD, BUT THE SHARPNESS HAS FADED

OK = SOME FADING OF COLOR AND NOT REAL SHARP, TOLERABLE TO WATCH, BUT NOT  GREAT

BAD = SNOWY, FUZZY, CAN HARDLY STAND TO WATCH!
