The tournament Saturday was a huge success! There were no real problems and the club made a bunch of money that all goes back to providing better service, training, and opportunities for all our judoka.
There were 126 competitors. Portage got 29 medals as well as 14 U10 participation awards.
The biggest deal was the HUGE turnout of U10 and U12 fighters. The club really thrives with the interest of these kids, as well as the parents’ willingness to get them involved and volunteer. As older kids and their families leave, it’s fantastic to see new members rising up to keep the club going strong.
Only two more weeks of classes, and the last ones are always the most fun!
Izabella and Wade both got medals at the Edmonton Tournament, which is the absolute coolest venue in the centre of West Ed Mall, with 850 competitors and balconies full of spectators.
Good job, you two!
Brave the cold! You won’t regret it!
Happly holidays and remember that the next class is Tuesday, January 9th.
On December 2nd in Selkirk, the crew up above went to the MB Provincials. Wade got a gold in the Senior Men -100kg division, and Brody got silver. Ethan got silver medals in both -18 and Senior Men -81kg and Dwight got bronze in Senior Men -81kg.
It’s nice to see both Ethan and the right half of Dwight’s face know how to smile for pictures.
Boy, was I wrong.
Provincials are in Selkirk (not UofM) on December 2nd.
