Detroit D'Lux Charity Challenge
WOW! What a great day! I am very inspired and impressed with the Detroit tournament circuit. The Great Lakes Circuit tournament directors in the circuit work together to promote and support each other and it makes for GREAT TOURNAMENTS!
On January 23rd I went to the D'Lux Charity Challenge in Madison Hts. Michigan. The tournament is AMAZING. 74 Under belt division, 40 Black Belt divisions and even a special needs division! I commend Mr. Lux on making sure eveyone has a place at his tournament! I'd guess close to 300 competitors! I am told that this tournament is now a *F*I*V*E* Star event earning 500 pts. for 1st Place and 300 extra for Grand Champion!
Today was extra special to me because 1. Master Bong and Wendy Came! 2. It was my dad's very first tournament and I'm really proud of him. He did a great job and brought home some new hardware! 2nd in Open Hand and 3rd in Weapons and he had lots of people in his division too so he earned it!
I got 1st in Traditional Weapons, 1st in Open Weapons, 3rd in Open hand- Nobody likes to lose, but this time, losing was sweet! My friend NOEL LOVELESS rocked it! Congrats girl! You deserved it! Finally, My last competition for the day was for Grand Champion. Wow! The trophy is sweet and I also won some $cash$ and 2 cool Flip Your Lid and Sick T's! Thanks! Love it! Best part of all... you all know that I believe in giving back and work hard to do my part for the community. The D'Lux event gives 15% of proceeds to a different charity every year. This year the Humane Society will benefit all of us hanging out and doing what we love to do.
This was my second year at D'Lux and both times I've made great friends and had so much fun!
Thanks Mr. Adam Lux and all the directors and my new friends! YOU ROCK!
