IT'S DONE!!!

Today I decided to not compete as I had originally planned to aid the event by MCing and managing the brackets for the no-gi day. Just having a link between the mats and the head-table made a huge difference and I want to thank everyone for their support and time.

Huge thanks to:
Khun Nid, Anjuna, Joel, Louisa, Tomi, Hiroko, Offer, Greg, Sean, Adam, Carlo, Paulo, Lee, Alex, Yohan, Suzanne, Chieko, Taki, Niti, Mark, Kei, Aramaki-san, Amps, Sebastien, Ing, Morgan, Adam (from HK), Lilly, Boss, Hack, Taichi, trophy-girls, EMAC crew and Ray. If I missed anyone, I am truly sorry but you've all added to the sucess of the this weekend, I'm just exhausted. Thank you!!!

I will write a full report this week but I seriously need to go to bed. Besides those involved, a huge thank you to the teams that came to compete, represent and show their support. Thank you!!!
