I'm heading into massive surgery to repair the damage from the last "Open" Gathering this June 21st. Will be having 2 specialist rebuild my right Pec, Reconnect my right Biceps tendon, and my right rotator cuff. They say it will be 7 months in rehab. I've always been a quick healer. It will at least allow me to work on my Left hand. If I am "healed" but lack strength, I hope to be at this one too if I am able. "Fight with what you got" is what I say, and do it is long and often as you can.

I have been trying to get an answer out of my wife over this but she has been deep in a bookkeeping mission and is ignoring all other requests for info.

Emerging from the legendary mists of Dog Brothers lore comes the Salty Dog.  Rumor has it he will be bringing a fighter or two to the Open Gathering  8-)

Hey all,

We have an official list of registered fighters at:
http://dogbrothers.com/?page_id=31


Scroll to the bottom and you'll see the list.  If you're name isn't on it, I haven't yet rec'd your registration.  

I'm going on vacation on July 6th and won't get back until the Aug 14th.  If you mail or fax something to me during this time, I'll get to it when I get back.  If you want to take care of it while I'm traveling it's best to email it to me in jpg or pdf format.  Then I can add you to the list.  

Thanks!
Cindy

P.S.  If you do PDF, fax, or JPG it to me, please also send me the signed original

I like to see the list growing. Now, to get the California "casually late" people, and the "on the fence" guys/girls to get in a commit. I'm still ramped up from the Tribal and am bringing my "A" game as always to the fights. My (post Op surgery) shoulder hurts, but not as much as the pain I would feel from sitting and watching. NoHo is going to represent well in honor of our leader Pappy Dog being absent and deployed to Afganistan. Haven't seen any of our Canadian brothers on the list...hmmm, whatcha waiting for? I plan on taking the shirt right off your back :)

WOOF! C-Mighty Dog

Hahaha! I didn't think you'd chime in Dr. Rick, the Toro and NoHo has a "smack-talk" contest before each Gathering. Don't worry, I'm saving a lil something for you too :), make sure you bring your best dancing shoes, cuz it we're using the whole floor. Crafty asked me to post here to get you guys from falling asleep.

Me too C-Gong Fu Dog! The Open Gathering is not like the Tribal, it's more caotic and some what "zoo" like. Like the Euro Open I would imagine...many fighters coming for the first time with little to no stick experience do "dance" and see if they like it. The good part is seeing some of those with no experience come back a year later with some Stick fighting abilities because they realize that they should get a teacher, or train harder. See you in May!

Woof C-Mighty Dog!  I've been a little worried......

Do you think that my wearing one of your custom masks will be too great an advantage when we fight?
I'd hate for you to have mixed emotions about hitting hard against your own handiwork  :wink:
Let me know if I should bring an alternate mask - I'd hate for you to feel conflicted!
Looking forward to September!

Thanks for your consideration Dr. Rick! Don't worry, I don't feel like I'm beating up one of my "children" :). I really look forward to our double stick fight. I've been really working my left and it's about 75% of my Right side now. I'm pretty excited to see how much more I can progress in the next 2 months. This will be my first "scrap" with doubles in a Gathering. Poi mentioned that he is looking forward to the staff fight with you. Just like last year, you certainly are NOT having "cake-walk" fights. Props to you bro! Other then you, my other 4 fights are with Full Dogs. Gotta earn my way to full acsention. Look forward to seeing you again Woof!

I wouldn't mind giving the three sectional staff or staff a go. I have a fight with Dog Ryan utilizing bokkan. I'd like to see how things go with the others. Love....just love DBMA.

C-Mighty Dog, I'm happy to hear that your recovery goes so well and that you will be dancing in September again!

Well, I'm not sure if I like the fact that your left hand is almost as good as your right one-Cause that means that you will definitely hit me with both hands  :wink:  :-)

On the other hand this is a good motivation to train my 3SS game even more  :-)

Just 10 months my brother... :-) :-) :-)

But, Like Crafty stated earlier...I may come to regret my generous gift to you. Now that it's been wielded with some power, and has broken some bones, it surely is a formidable weapon. I can't wait for the "re-match" bro. I'm developing a unique combo for next Tribal....The cane and nunchukus. I made a pair of "chucks" out of the K.I.L. rattan last night, and plan on having K.I.L. make me a Cane out of the same material.
