    Unfortunately no. One I hate to miss. As it is, an issue at work has me missing a Black Belt test at our school. I hate when I do not get to see a studetn achieve his/her black belt.

    Yeah, that is too bad. Especially missing out on the test. It really stinks to have to miss those major milestones.

    As to the tournament, I was kind of hoping you might be coming down. It would be fun to meet someone from here, and that would have been my first face-to-face meeting with a fellow KT-er. I guess that will just have to wait until May 6.

    Good luck with the work stuff.

    The tournament went very well. This was the second year I've attended, and both years there were a lot of competitors under about 17 or 18, and very few older than that. This year I wound up helping out as a scorekeeper, so I got a good look at part of the competition, but was unable to watch much of what was going on in other rings. Competition ran about 4 hours on Saturday evening with demo teams, team sparring and breaking. Sunday ran about 5 hours with individual forms, weapons and sparring. The gym was pretty much full, and the crowd had a lot of enthusiasm and supported the kids very well.

    I also had the pleasure of taking Joe and Russ Palanzo to the airport, and had a great conversation with them. All in all a great weekend.
