The Judo NS Provincials will take place on Saturday, November 28th in the New Glasgow area. Kanokai Judo Club will be hosting the event in partnership with Judo Nova Scotia.
Venue and Technical Info will be released in the coming weeks.
Fundraising: We are asking each club to raise $500 or more towards this event. Any club that is successful in reaching that target or higher will have 50% of their fund raising efforts applied to the next use of the tournament kit. This means if you reach $1500.00 your next tournament kit will be free!!! We hope this incentive will encourage clubs to consider hosting a tournament for the upcoming year, and Gordon would be happy to discuss this possibility with any interested clubs.
With a little hard work and support from all of our clubs across the province let’s make this year’s fund raiser an extra big success to allow us to continue investing in our up and coming champions and building on the success of the Canada Games.
Dragonboat is more than just a fundraiser; it is also a time to enjoy a fun-filled day with the judo community! We encourage everyone to stop by Lake Banook on July 11th and enjoy some bbq (and refreshment) courtesy of Judo Nova Scotia
