Chicago Pacific Island Gathering and Tournament

Steve Perry whined recently that people just don't post often enough. Sigh...
I could say something like "we're too busy living/training/working (or posting on FB not)" but that would be disrespectful so I won't.
Navadisha clan is heading out shortly with Mushtaq and Cole for the annual slog to Chicago for the tournament. Chris is meeting us there after teaching today.
Would have left even earlier but Cole has a football scrimage this morning, already!
Sure to be a good time as usual.
I made some of the trainer weapon prizes this year as well as procured the rest of them from Cold Steel (barong machetes and rubber knives)

You can see them on the fb event as well. Whoever wins should be quite happy.

This is potentially Cole's last attendance as college looms next fall and depending on where the little genius gets accepted, he could be on either coast by this time next year. (Stanford and MIT are looking promising).
So we're also taking him here tonight.

Oh man, Halo Halo without the fear of waking up sick the next day!!!

We have an additional suprise for Cole that I can post here in a few days.

Chris just got a new HD video camera so hopefully I'll have more and better pics and vids to post in a few days as well.

I hope that while so many people are out smelling the flowers, someone is taking the time to plant some -- Herbert Rappaport
