We’re into the final preparations for the Sunshine Coast Friendship Tournament on this weekend, Sunday 5th August 2012, at Millwell Road Community Centre, Maroochdyore. For the convenience of all competitors, here’s a copy of the schedule so that you can plan your day.

If you are competing, opening ceremony will be 9.20am and competition will start at 9.30am. If you’re keen to check out the kumite action and senior kata divisions that will all be after the lunch break.
Spectator Entry fee will be $5 per family. Free entry for volunteers.
The association will also be running a canteen, BBQ and a 100 club. Just in case you don’t know how the 100 club works… there are 100 squares for sale @ $2 a square, when you buy a square you put your name in it. At the end of the day the board will be cut up into 100 pieces and 2 pieces will be drawn out at random. First piece drawn out gets choice of $100 cash or a full car detail and wax valued at $150, second drawn out gets the other prize. The remaining funds will go towards supporting Sunshine Coast athletes competing at next year’s Soke Cup in Hong Kong.
If you are able to help as a volunteer we’d appreciate any help you can give. We have some table official training at Maroochydore Dojo this Saturday, 4 August 9.30-10.30am. Table officials have one of the best jobs in the whole tournament, they get front row seats, lollies to eat all day and you even get a free lunch. We also need helpers to pack up all of the equipment at the dojo on Saturday after the table official training, set up the tournament venue from 8.00am on Sunday morning and then return everything to the dojo Sunday after the tournament. If you can help anywhere your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
So, we’ll see you at tournament!
