Put the last weekend of January and March on your calendar for our next tournaments. These will be at Sportsworld (We will return to the beach next summer when it warms up).
Guys, remember the first tournament at Paddy’s last year at this time? It was cold outside and we held it in the bar. We made it work but it was pretty tight. Well, we can fit about 1000 Paddy’s in our new winter home. We will have plenty of space.
In fact, I am thinking to add a little extra fun, we might just throw down an old school kick ball game that all our kids and and wives and girlfriends can join in along with us. Let see if we can talk our resident kickball expert, Ryan Greco, into being the Chief Petty Officer of organizing the activity. I was thinking that it might also be a good way to keep people warm while they are waiting for their match. But then I remembered, our tournament is not like your typical tournament. It is half the cost and 10 times better. It is action packed and we generally don’t have people sitting around all day and night waiting for a match.
Bring your family and friends. There is NO charge for the audience. Tell them to bring their kick ball uniforms.
(I don’t know, I have not played kick ball since 5th grade. I do have a lot of good memories about the game. Ryan tells me that it is the up and coming thing to do. Listen, if you don’t want to compete, just come and hang out with us and invest your day in playing).
Now, get out there and LIVE THE LEGEND,
To your success in Jiu Jitsu and in LIFE!
