|INFORMATION & SPECIFICS|
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!
