ive put it on my wallchart

Try not to become too hyper if you win...peeps will think you strange if you run round the venue between submitting someone and being awarded

I've been to that tourney before. Here's my advice:

1) Don't drink alcohol the night before.
2) Don't try to cut weight, really at novice it isn't worth it. All of our guys have had to learn that.
3) You will be nervous and have a rush of adrenaline. Surveryorshawn had it right, train longer to keep from gassing.
4) Don't lay and pray if you get the takedown waiting it out to win on those 2 points. That makes you look like a jerk.
5) Remember that it's supposed to be fun. That's the one that helped me the most. I just went and competed to say I'd done it. I wanted to have a good showing so as to not let my team and coach down. Other than that, I wanted to enjoy it.

That's all. For now.

I will either come up and cheer you on, be in SC at a regatta, or possibly be camping in the mountains that weekend. I'll let you know next month because that's when the regatta schedule will be decided by the bf for his teen rowing team.

US Grappling runs good tournaments. I have done several of them. Good luck with your training!

Thanks! Yeah, I've been pretty impressed by what I've seen of US Grappling.

Thank you guys SO MUCH for all the prayer & support yesterday. There were a coupla times when I was feeling really run down & tired, but then O feel a surge of energy & I've got no doubt it was from y'all! I'm in the process of trying to put together a more comprehensive summary, but in the meantime y'all can go here & get the Cliff notes version: www.Twitter.com/VCURamFan.

HINT: Read from the bottom up to avoid "spoilers".
