Once again, we had a great tournament on Sunday 26th Feb, with over 70 competitors. Congratulations to everyone who took part, and of course in particular to all those who placed. Someone has to win; that's what competition is all about.
A big well done also to all the officials. For some of them it was the first time "live" and they all performed very well. Still, there's always room for improvement, as with anything in life, and we will always strive towards that. Thanks also to the volunteers who handled the score keeping.
A big thank you to all the parents who supported the event by making the effort to be there while their children learn to compete, to deal with winning and losing, sportsmanship, teamwork, and camaraderie.
Needless to say, we also thank all those who helped set up the day before and pack up after the tournament. These are important components of any tournament, and we always welcome people who volunteer to help (as we all do) with all the logistical aspects of our events. Let us know if you'd like to help with the next one.
The next tournament for IFKKA is Full Contact - from 11 yrs/ 8th kyu and up, 26th June.
