Tournament this Weekend and Canceled Practice

Just a reminder that the tournament here in town is tomorrow. Everyone should come down and help out (even if your not competing).
There is always a need for more help at the tournament and anything you can do is appreciated.

On a related note, practice tomorrow (Saturday) will be cancelled because everyone will be at the tournament. Also, there won’t be practice on Monday due to the holiday. See everyone back on the mat on Thursday.
Good luck to all our competitors tomorrow.
