Alrighty. Fonzzy and I are currently preparing a place for our Throwdown in Tucson, AZ. We have a large concrete shed that we are cleaning out. But we still need mats. Anybody have some extras lying around? Either way, keep checking in, because we are going to be setting a hard date soon.
A large concrete shed? Like, what, in someone's back yard?
Hey I just joined, can i meet up with you guys? I am in phoenix but ill go to Tuscon.
I don't see any problem with people from Phoenix rolling on down, though we seem to be waiting on news from Cefter on his mystery shed.
Failing that, once we have a decent number of dudes possibly lined up I can ask the owner if we can host in the Sixth Street Gym, which is centrally located and fairly easy to find, if a bit deliciously ghetto.
As a general note, if we do any throw-downing in the next month or so, I won't be able to show off my totally awsum(terrible) wrasslin' skillz because I've managed to **** up my back(upper and lower muscle strains and such) and I'd like to give it time to heal.
I will still, however, be mostly able to show off my awsum(terrible) striking skills, minus, y'know, most of the bits that make Enshin Enshin.
How are the preparations going, anyways? Any ETA on the Mystery Shed?
We got the mats and were putting them in today... But I think it's time to pick a date, get some commitments, and schedule some time at 6th street. I'm pretty sure Fonzzy has already been there a couple of times and may even have a membership. I'm not sure. But the Concrete box in my backyard is really just a "if there is nothing better available" kind of thing. I want out first throw down to be done with a touch of class. So, Ironfist? What day works for you?
According to his posts in the MABS "BS Muay Thai in Tucson?" thread, he's mainly a Boxing Inc and Elite Krue guy, unless he visited after those posts.
I'm mainly good for Saturdays between one-ish and four-ish, earlier if I skip out on Enshin, and I'm usually at the gym between 3:30 to 6:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays. I'm not sure what the open gym hours are on Saturday, but I'll check if I go in tomorrow.
Why is it that, every time I miss a few days for injury or sickness, they start doing some weird **** with the gym? Case in point:
It looks like they took the ring apart to use as a stage, and those look suspiciously like the mats from the upstairs room where the ring used to be. Goddamnit.
Considering that I was hoping on using either the ring or the upstairs room if we do this **** at my gym, this might have to wait until March and they get everything back to how it should be. On the plus side, by then I should be good for rolling again, though probably a poor match, size wise, for anyone else who shows.
