    Default World Karate Championship Vegas 2009

    Hey guys,

    Do any of you know anything about this?.

    In March 2008 when at the Jersey World Championship the next one was declared that it would be October 2009 in Las Vegas, now coming from the UK this was an amasing thought.

    A gentleman by the name of Gilbert Velez was planning it, but all has gone quiet.

    Do any of you know if and what is going on?.

    I Would like to be able to book it and start counting how many sleeps I would have left oh and of course organise our club numbers etc.

    Any help gratefully received.

    Salute.

    I've been wanting to know about this myself.

    If it were happening, I'd be there in a blink.

    According to Mr. Velez, in an email a few days ago.

    The IKC in Vegas is Oct 15th to 18th at the Palace Station Hotel and Casino (behind Circus Circus, 5 minutes from the strip). A rate has been negotiated with the hotel for rooms already. When calling for special rates mention "Las Vegas International Karate Competition."

    The website for the event is scheduled to be up within a few weeks. I will gladly share more info as it becomes available to me.

    Hi Bill, yeah that is what I have also read on his website. Problem is that the event has already moved dates and also been moved from a different hotel and so without confirmation I don't really want to book anything.

    I am keeping an eye on flight prices etc, fingers crossed.

    If and when you do hear anything I would be grateful if you could let us know.

    I might want to wait on booking anything involving the Station casinos at this point. They just completely missed their last interest payment on their debt, and that is usually that last thing to happen before a BK filing. I have to wonder ifthey are going to be in business in October.

    LOL. My guy is a third black in AK as well, so he was excited by the idea. His two favorite things in one place: Me and Kenpo (in that order!) with the bonus of NO KIDS. A beautiful thing. What more could a person ask for?

    Well I was just there last weekend and I DID get married there (2004).

    I bet I can get myself out there for this event.
    The above is just my opinion.

    Is your wife a kenpo chickie? If so, then double-bonus for you!
