The US Open, set for October 15, 16 and 17 in Santa Cruz, California, has some news to announce. Normally, the absolute in the various belt groups is restricted to the four top-placed athletes of each weight class. This time, though, the absolute will be held beforehand, and everyone can get in the action.
Promoter of the event Claudio França reminds us that there are still rooms to e had in the hotel near the event offering slashed rates to athletes and teachers participating in the tournament. But you’d better hurry.
“There are one hundred rooms, and they fill up quick,” says França, excited about the teams’ receptiveness to the news. The US Open 2010 marks the 15th installment of the tournament. Among those signed up are Augusto Tanquinho and Theodoro Canal.
“The trophy for best team in the tournament is getting folks around these parts excited. I’m getting the feeling they’re organizing themselves to show up strong. Who wouldn’t want to take a trophy home with them?” he concludes.
