What all Bullies are planning on showing up? Who all is competing?
Nazir, you are going, right?
So far we have pre-registrations in from NY Combat Sambo (NY), LA Boxing (Louisiana), Guy Mezger's (Texas), Seatown Sambo (Seattle)
Tomorrow is the last day to get the pre-registration discount if you are not an ASA member.
Of course, I'll be there. I registered and my kurtka is on the way. I believe Zapruder is coming but I am not sure. I am sure that ECS will have some guys rolling out. All in all, it should be a great day in Cedar Park!
You registered? Via paypal? I don't have your name...

I'm basically going to yank this as a "quick results" post for MATCS, since we already wrote a thing or two leading up to this event and, apparently and MUCH to my disapproval, our branch in Texas decided not to even mention this.
Edit: Provided you don't mind, of course.
