Being a noob myself I will be bringing several pairs of gloves just in case. I have a pair of mylex elite street hockey and stx rival lacrosse gloves that I am hoping will fit the bill (the stx ones are the closest to kil I could find). I do like the idea of a professional photographer on site, if he has a website (or use DBMA site?) he could give out numbers to the fighters and post the pics online for purchase.
Still looking for some single stick dances if anyone is interested.
I have done extensive testing on a variety of knee pads over the last few years (service connected knee injuries) and and have come to the conclusion that FOX Launch Pro Knee Pad are the ideal fit for me. They are slip on adjustable hard shell pads with a soft shell feel, full range of motion and extremely light (~6oz). I can barely tell I am wearing these and the fit is exceptionally well.
Just want to make sure you folks got my "fighter form" for the open Gathering in Sept. Also, its kind of early, but what the hell, got 2 fights set up for the open (thanks Toki and Eric Taimanglo) and looking for 1 more (preferably single stick but will consider another knife fight).
