Do you get a t-shirt upon registration?

with this only being 30 minutes away, I'd feel stupid not to enter a bracket for some experience!

 Went to ADCC in Grand Rapids today.  Was really disappointed with the amount of competitors. 

ADCC has a great crew of guys running the show.  It was great to meet Carlão, Brett Boyce, and the officals.  I had a great time, but too bad that more grapplers didn't participate.  They would have had a heck of an experience.

Wow...Clint Crabtree's school was WELL represented!

Congrats to Angelo Popofski for winning the absolute!  I know that he wasn't sure how good his knee was going to hold up.  (I heard him mention that earlier in the tournament.)

I thought it was really sad to have an event like this come to Michigan and not have a bigger turnout. I was shocked by how few competitors were. I figured for a shot at the ADCC Qualifiers, Michigan's best would come out. I know there were a couple of MMA shows tonight, but still...

Either way, our team of 8-10 competitors had a great time and the event staff was nice and extremely professional.

Thanks for the mention Annil8torz! Who were you? You should've come up and said hi. I did just have my knee scoped bout 3 weeks ago and haven't been able to train much, so I just showed up to compete for fun and to help support Carlao and Clint. Glad I showed up, LOL.

Again, we had a great time and thanks to everyone.

 I agree that it was sad that an event such as ADCC comes to Michigan and there was such a low turnout.  Everyone was very friendly as well as professional.  I can't say enough about how cool the tourney was.  It's a shame more didn't take part.

Angelo, I was working and wearing the black ADCC t-shirt against the green barrier fence, right around where you had all of your absolute matches.  Short, stocky, Mexican guy....you couldn't miss me...lol!  I didn't want to bother you as you were coaching some guys and also were getting ready for your own matches.

Yep! I totally remember seeing you. You shouldve come and hang out with us. It wouldn't have been a bother. Meeting new people and putting faces to names is the fun part of the sport.
