It's Friday and preparations are underway at the Future Mart for the tournament this weekend. A group of us will be hauling mats and setting up later this evening and competing the next day! You'll also be seeing us on the mat competing with the rest of you cause we just can't help ourselves. I'll be taking pics of the event as best I can in addition the professional photographers that will be on-sight. I will do my best to post this weekend but at best, it'll probably be a quick blurb and will have to wait till later in the week.
A totally new-found respect for the guys that have put such an event together before us. It's a huge undertaking but it's all for the benefit of the scene and you guys, the competitors. This event is with the competitors first, in mind. Everything from online-registration, free rashguard, custom designed medals (which by the way look great and are substantially hefty), qualified referees, media coverage, discounted hotel stay, Saturday night dinner, free transportation, and a great city with insane nightlife! OK, that last part we just lucked out on, hehe.
Feel free to introduce yourself and say hi. It's always fun to meet and makes friends. I'll be the Asian guy running around like a headless chicken, haha.
