are you in competition shape? if not, skip it and do the next one. no need to jump right back in and possibly get hurt or at least discouraged if you're not ready

You're a 31 yr old blue belt, this isn't your career. Do whatever you want, have fun but start training.

If you can do a run on the tournament the way you do a run on a sentence, you're good to go.

Assuming that you are getting back into rolling, I recommend going to the tournament and enjoy the matches, talk and meet fellow practitioners this will be great motivation to get you back on track.

Good luck buddy.

If you like competing then go for it, if not then don't bother. 

You are not a professional so it must come down to enjoyment.
