    Let's just make sure we let everybody who's interested know that date, so we get a list together.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. Frankly I get beaten up every time I go to one of these things, so what's the worst that can happen? I don't have a lot of faith that Master Ray would show up, but maybe some of his students.

    You might notice that when he thought he would scare me off with a challenge, it was to roll with his students--not with him.

    If his students show up, there are only two outcomes:

    1. They suck, they get owned by people with less experience and less rank. At best they'll see the light, at worst more sparring happened at the Throwdown than would have if they hadn't been there.

    2. It turns out they can hold their own or even dominate using what Master Ray has taught them, which, although humbling for everyone else, still shows us the truth of the matter.

    Either they're going to learn something important, or we are.

    Well shucks Mister Gwinn ... even my lame duck ground game stepped up the plate on that one .

    I even explained how this will not be

    CHALLENGE MATCH DEATH BRAWL 2007 VVIVII !!!!!

    CLASH OF THE IDGITS , LAMERS , OLD CRIPPLES , and ILLITERATE FOR BLOOD!!!!111!!!!!!!!!


    ... but a chance to test yourself and skills under many different limited and open rule sets .

    I am truly hoping for a bigger turn out . Mostly so I will not be the SMALLEST guy there !.

    Can anyone scrounge up some Thai pads so we can drill and work some technique instead of rolling under the bench seating and hiding between rounds/matches . I think I can grab our groups set and bring along an extra set of 16 oz gloves along with my MMA sparing gloves , a video camera , digital camera for pics , and more than likely another person or two to beat on .

    • thai pads ( possible )
    • video camera ( vhs so bring your own as well )
    • mma sparing gloves
    • camera for stills
    • Gi for self ownage if that damn 880 lb Judo black belt shows up
    • cup/mouth piece
    • bad music to cramp everyone else's game
    • a loved one or two to hold me while I cry
    • one or two other people to succeed where I failed


    am I forgetting anything ?
