Last Saturday all the adult Gold Medal winners received a free Float gift certificate from Floathouse valued at $65.  Check out their website at  to see what they are all about.  Thank-you Floathouse for your generous sponsorship.

Not only did we give away free floats, we also gave away a free trip.  The winner of our grand prize trip was Hector Wong from NVBJJ.  We asked Hector if he had any idea where he wanted to travel and he anwered, “US Open, in California”.  Congratulations Hector and we wish you well in your up and coming BJJ tournament at the US Open.
