Good evening Instructors and those who registered interest in going to the Caboolture Tournament this year.
I have been advised by the Caboolture Tournament Director that there is a clash of tournament dates in June in Australia. Apparently the President’s Cup, and another overseas tournament are running at the same time – meaning there will probably not be a good athlete attendance at the Caboolture Tournament itself. This also happened last year, and when we looked at the 2019 poomsae draw, in some divisions, New Zealand athletes would possibly have no competition. The Tournament Director himself is upset at this turn of events, regarding the clash of dates.
TUNZ was interested in taking a team so that athletes would get good competition outside of New Zealand – but this may not be the reality this year.
If you still are interested in going to this tournament, I have attached the entry pack. Please contact me if you are still interested in attending.
This really is unfortunate, but we will see what we can organise in the future.
Kind regards – Joan
