2. SPECIAL THANKS & WELCOME

We were excited to see the familiar competitors and clubs that competed on the day. A special thank you to those who took the time to say hi, introduce themselves and make me feel welcome as the new NSW Director :-)

Welcome to the new clubs that attended on the day for the first time. We had five new clubs join us who settled in well and displayed great team spirit.

Well done to all the mums, dads and families that attended. Competition can be a long day, but your patience and support was greatly appreciated. Thank you for your positive feedback on the new set up. We were happy to hear that you had a clear view from the grandstand of each and every ring/event. Our goal was achieved. A few parents shared that their children felt the comfort of their own personal space by the rings not being over crowded or intimidated. Your children’s safety and happiness is our number one concern.

What is competition? I often tell my students that the only person to compete against is yourself. It’s knowing that you stepped onto those matts, performed and know within oneself that you did better than the last time. Keep striving to gain.

I look forward to seeing you all at Round 2 on Sunday 29th of April.
