Hey All, A few of my teammates are thinking about making the haul out to the east coast for the USMTO tournament. Any fellow forum members attending? We're wondering in particular if the Women's Class A 125-132 is likely to be stacked. It's between this and another single fight event, and she'd obviously rather have more fights if possible.

I'm registered. If I remember last year at the WKA tournemant in NY they had maybe 6-8 women in that range/experience (it's not mine so I only remember that my teammate was accidentally listed up in experience in that weight and that they had a few brackets to fight through/have us contest multiple times that she was novice class). WKA tornament is a giant, gaping craphole so I won't be surprised if more people compete at this event because its sister events have such wonderful reviews.

Thanks! Sounds like it will most likely be worth it. I had heard that the WKA tournament was insane. Paper printouts of brackets flying around everywhere, insanely long waits, etc.

The paper brackets at each ring did not match the paper brackets in the hallway and neither matched the paper brackets in the fighter area. None of my 12 teammates fought at all Day One. Half of us fought Day Two (I was asleep late in the day when I was told my fight was NOW). Then they cancelled the remaining women's bouts on Day Three because they were too behind schedule to finish everything, even though my opponent and I walked from ring to ring begging to be the next fight. It was a very stressful, frustrating experience that we each spent a good deal of cash on. I'm hoping this tournament is nothing alike.

I am registered for both WKA and USMTO, but in a lower weight class; it is my first time participating in either of those events so I am hoping it will go smoothly.
