Seventeen of our members went north to Comox to participate in the 2006 Island Friendship Tournament held on May 27, 2006. Almost two hundred competitors took part in this annual event, hosted by the Comox Shito-Ryu karate club, and it was an exciting tournament for our guys and gals.

Our 17 members participated in 39 events and total of 34 medals were won. Once again there were many personal bests acheived as several of our members won double gold and one, Elysia, won three gold medals.

Regardless of medals won, the fact remains that simple participation, learning something new, making friends and having a great time, should always be the priority and, hopefully, the memories and friendships will last a long time.

Way to go muchachos!
