I went to the Orlando website and noticed that either the dates are wrong or the days. Is the seminar going to be on Friday the 24th or Sat. the 25th? I have a bunch of guys that want to do some Sambo stuff, but we all have to try and get days off.
Are you allowed to just compete without going to a seminar?
You do not need to do the seminar. They are on different days I believe, but write to Yvonne (e-mail above) to confirm the dates. I will check as well. I believe the seminar is on Saturday and the tournament is on Sunday. I will be there officiating.
steve r u going to disneyland?
I know I'm in for the 5th. I'll see how the money holds for the rest!!
Cool Serge! Any of your guys coming?
