 Hey guys and gals,
Since we don't really want to compete with EVERYBODY else, we are thinking of setting our first tourney in April.  We are even thinking a Sunday, so that those with Sat. classes can still show up and compete.  We will be incorporating the new bracket system, too.

Also,
we are thinking of having a judo seminar in Feb. or March.  What do you think, 15-20 bucks, 3-4 hours?

Any idea in April on the tourney? The 10th or 17th would be good.

How about the 11th or 18th? We are seriously considering Sunday tournament times so that instructors/students with Saturday classes won't have to give up money/time/tournament time to compete.

 We could, but we believe it would lessen the overall impact of the tournament.  We are not NAGA or anyone else; we want to improve ALABAMA (or any other competitor who shows up) competitors' skill levels.  We envision our org more as a training ground than as a "we are the best" scenario.  To that end, not trying to force a bunch of stuff in one day is more of our goal.  Last year was a learning curve for us, and we intend to improve on our performance for you.

 By "improve" I hope you mean the scoring system.

 your right, I was just thinking that if I go from bottom to top I should get points for a sweep or escape and a takedown.
