Thirty-seven of our members took part in the 2007 Vancouver Island Championships held on April 28, 2007. It was another great day for our members. Although we didnít have the same sweep as last yearís event, our members had another successful day none the less. A total of 54 medals were won (compared to 67 last year) with 14 gold, 17 silver and 23 bronze (unofficial results).

There were some surprising finishes and some expected finishes. One unusual event was that several of our members had the case of the tipsy's (momentary loss of balance -- which is usually penalized quite harshly) and another few had temporary laryngitis (no kia). Must have been the spiked milk in the morning cereal. :)

Also, there were a large number of first timers at this event, and the first tournament is always the toughest. Once the kids get comfortable with the whole scene, they will perform much better. No matter. There were some great performances in the kata divisions and many exciting bouts in the kumite divisions.

Some personal bests were also set and we had several of our members winning up to three medals each. Congratulations to one and all for your hard work and a big thank you to all the parents for your support.
