 Sorry, Bro, for the delay in answering.

We are having to go through more hoops, but it looks like the last Sat. in July or the first Sat. in Aug.  Get your pajama wrasslin ready!

I saw this post was moved ttt and thought for a second that the AGA had ACTUALLY set a final date for the gi tournament...I was wrong of course.

 Because it is summer, we are having difficulties finalizing the venue.  You may be surprised where we end up for this.  The way it is looking, though, if we have the gi tourny in August, we won't be able to have more than one after that for the rest of 09.  If that is the case, and we can secure the proper venue, then we will have a 2 day tourny, no gi then gi, free for current members.

Lucian, if you have any leads on a good venue, I'd love to hear them.

 Yes, it does.  You must have the addy wrong.

Thanks for the lead.  I shall check into it.  Contact info?  If you can't get the AGA email addy right, for whatever reason, you can send it to my work email.

 working on it, I promise.  Haven't gotten with your lead yet, working on another.  To everyone:  I promise I, and the other directors, are working to nail it down.  We do have kids, work, etc... going on, though, and that cuts into it.   As one of my children screams in the background, I'm writing this.  Please be patient.  We are a legit non-profit, and are doing this out of our love for this sport.

ps:  that means we are doing this for no money, only the love of the game...

 I'm sorry if I sounded such, bro.  I didn't mean too, just didn't want anyone else to get mad.  I'd love to have single place to go to over and over, so we are trying to search with that in mind. 

Good luck to you guys in GA.  I posted the details of their event on our website.  Let us know how ya'll do!

Hiza:

I just happen to have a venue available on Aug. 22. It will be sitting empty all day. Well, except for my square cage sitting in the middle, and a couple hundred chairs. It's available til about 5 pm...

It is conveniently located in Brookwood, and available at a very good price... as in free!

You bring the mats and the people, I provide the venue and concessions. What do ya say?

Seriously.

^^^^ yes, why all the silence?

Mr. Stedham extends his hand with a very gracious offer, what is the AGA going to do?

 Believe it or not, I don't live on this forum...

I got your message, too, Tom.  The invite is very nice.  I don't know that we will be able to take advantage of it, though.  We have no mats nor do we know anyone with mats in that area.  We don't even know anyone to ask over there.  On top of that, this is a gi tournament and the only school who trains in gis, that I'M aware of, well... I don't think ya'll get along...  Would they even show up anywhere near the square cage? 

Again, I truly appreciate the offer and I like the idea of pairing up events a whole lot.  I just don't think this one will work... unless someone can address the problems, above...??

What is the only school you know that trains in gis (that doesn't get along with tom)? We have an ever growing number of guys at our gym and we train almost entirely in the gi. I know you are having trouble setting a venue/date, but if we can get one nailed down I may be able to convince a good number of guys to compete. Also Josh J. has said that many of the guys from Triad would compete and we know guys from SBJJ will be there as well as one or two from spartan. I think the turn out might be better than expected. I for one am looking forward to competing locally...that's why I keep bugging you about it :)

Hiza, who are you referring to?

Triad trains in gis pretty much all of the time. I don't think anyone from our school has any problem with Tom, at least not that I know of.
