Officials from ADCC will be in Saddlebrook Thursday August 13th, 2009 to hold a referee seminar from 6:30 - 9:30pm. This is an opportunity to become an official ADCC referee for all their sanctioned events that can take you all over the world to ref for them and get paid doing so. This includes the ADCC Regional tournament to be held on August 15, 2009 at the Richard J. Codey Arena at South Mountain and any of the future tournaments in the US and the Abu Dhabi itself. If you want to be one of the few people in NJ to claim the ultimate title of Official ADCC Ref, let me know. Anyone participating in the referee seminar will be able to work the ADCC tournament on 8/15 with pay, and is also eligible for the FREE Marcelo Garcia seminar Friday August 14th.
