Official Mega TD thread Sept 6th of 2009!
In just a few months, the OFFICIAL MEGA THROWDOWN of 2009 will soon be in our laps and as we caress it gently and it purrs and kneads our pant legs right before running off to **** in the corner, we remember that we need to make concessions and plannings to deal with this ****.
This is going to be held in Santa Barbara this year. Exactly at 1722 State Street, Santa Barbara, Ca 93101
Labor day weekend! Sunday September 6th, 2009! The throwdown will start at 1:00PM until whenever Omega kicks us out of the gym.
Well at the Mega throwdown, there will be a lot of ass grabbing and people flailing their arms about trying to mimic martial artists. There will actually be some people there though, who are actual Martial Artists, so watch out for those guys.
OTHER THINGS THAT MIGHT BE HAPPENING.
GONG SAU: Sirc vs. Munacra. The not so muchly anticipated gong sau of 2009. Since I refuse to waste 20 minutes uploading **** on youtube, it's been decided that I have to fight Munacra so that I can show I can pretend to be a martial artist, too? Or something like that.
SPECIAL GUEST STARS: I don't actually know if there will be any, but you never know. There's a few MMA folks that live around that area that might be persuaded to head out to this shindig. Maybe. We'll see.
THINGS: Yes there will be things to do. This is a great opportunity to learn some new techniques and get experience sparring people you're not used to sparring all the time, which is a wonderful and awesome experience if you're a serious Martial Larpist. I believe that Omega will be showing some new techniques as well as anybody who has any real skills in their respective art. Throwdowns are also partly seminars/workshops in nature.
AFTERWARDS: There will be some going out and having fun afterwards. Santa Barbara is full of fun things to do. Warning though: We at bulshido do not condone you acting like a jackass because you think that you're with a group of "fighters" and you can go out and pick fights. If you do, you are on your own. Sorry asshole, we're not helping enable your faggotry.
Reccomendations for lodging:
Staying in santa barbara will be a little on the expensive side. I'd recommend staying off of State Street if you can. However, Omega is good friends with the people at the Sandpiper Lodge, so if you feel like spending an extra few dollars to pass business over, feel free. I'd highly recommend finding someone you're not afraid of and getting a room together. It's cheaper and more fun this way.
Any questions can be directed to this thread. Anybody with real authority will answer.
The dudes from San Diego
Hopefully we can keep this updated. Thanks everyone!

Too far. Does not compute.
I'll hold out for the next D-town.
I still never got to fully test my strength at the last throwdown since I came late (I still wanna try grappling/striking at the same time), but I'll still try to make it even though I haven't been doing squat for the past year.
Did I get uninvited to this?
No, we accidentally misplaced the other thread.

I was wondering where the hell it went. I was beginning to think I had imagined it.

Then again, I may just say **** it and go all out 2 weeks in a row. I used to be able to do it many years ago...hope I'm not too old for this **** yet. We'll see.
So anyone who wants to do some real contact weapons fighting, I'll be there looking for some action!!
