Woof Crafty,
A couple of corrections on the Tribe Listing:

Dave “StrayDog” Rothburg
Richard “Seeing Eye Dog” Estepa
We are still listed as candidates with"C-", IIRC, we ascended in 2007.

Mamerto “C-Bull Dog” Estepa and “Dog” Mo Estepa are the same person.

I can do double w/no grappling, or single stick if you want.

Many thanks and congrats are in order.
Thanks to Guro Crafty and Pretty Kitty for putting on this event.

Thanks to Pappy Dog for finding this venue and the fighting surface(mats).  I thought we were going to have to fight on a bare court.

Thanks to the fighters who helped set up the chairs and mats.  It would have been a daunting task without all of your help.

Thanks to Lorenz for fighting aluminum knives with me.  Thanks for the additions to my scar collection.

Thanks and congrats to Al Romo. You fought well.  Thanks for not cracking my noggin when my hat was off.  Thanks for the additions to my bruise collection.

Congrats to Brian and Chuck, first timers from the NoHo crew.  It was fun watching you guys apply what we have taught you.

Finally, thanks to all of the fighters for showing up and doing what most people are unwilling to do. For it is the fighters that make a Gathering.

Woof Crafty,
I have 20/200 in my right eye., 20/400 in my left eye, fortunately correctable to 20/20 in both.  In addition, I've had retina detatchment surgery in my left eye and lost 20-25% in my field of vision in that eye, fortunately it is in the periphery and not in the center.  That being said, my vision has not hampered my ability to participate in the last six Gatherings.  I have to take special care in training and especially in fighting at the Gatherings. 

Here are some things that I do to adjust. Training in pure grappling should not pose any problem, seeing opportunities while grappling is not as important as "feeling" them.  In striking/mma training (i.e. boxing, MT, etc.), I still train without any glasses/goggles.  Because I see the world as one giant blur, I have taught myself to recognize what strikes look like when they come at you and to keep my hands up.  Similarly when striking a target,  I taught myself to strike where I think my target is.  For example,  if I want to punch someone in the nose, I aim about one third down from the blur that is the opponent's head.  In stickfighting is where I wear the goggles.  The sticks are coming in too hard and fast not to see.   

I say, if you need 'em, use 'em.  If not, then don't.
