One Does Not Sight See at a Tournament

I’m not sure how it is for other academies when they go away for tournaments, but when we go there is rarely, if ever, any sight seeing.

When I mention to people that I am going to California, people usually express something to the effect of “oh, you should really check this out!”

Not to sound harsh, but for the majority of my trip I will be looking at three things: the inside of a gymnasium, the inside of a hotel room, and the inside of an airport (and yes, I used the oxford comma and I refuse to apologize for it).

Sure, we’ll go out to dinner in the evening, when we aren’t dieting, but during the day we are watching our teammates compete, or we are competing, or our coach is competing. And that about sums up the weekend. The team will also be going to San Diego to train at the University of Jiu Jitsu on Monday, but I am flying out on Sunday night and will be back in Philadelphia by that point.

The area around the event center is pretty, from what I see going to and from the event center. I’ll be sure to take plenty of pictures for everyone one my way to and from. 🙂

    Yeah, I probably come back paler from California due to the complete indoorsy-ness of the trip…i remember my first trip and how I was looking up activities in the area, like “oh! Maybe we can goto legoland!” sike!

    What’s your weight class, Katie? You might be fighting my teammate.

    Hmmmm, she’s lost a bit of weight and might be sliding into the “light” bracket, I’m not certain. They don’t apprear to have the brackets up on the website (yet?); they did last year.

      yup- they are up: click on the link “by category” on the main site under the Pan banner and you can check who is in what bracket

    OK, I’m a moron, I can’t find it. Link?

    Thanks! You are both off the hook (and so am I, because I don’t have to root against either of you). She is not in the same bracket.
