    We are currently looking for 8 competitors for our "Lock-Ness" division for Sasquatch Open #7! This is a "submission only", winner-take-all, no time-limit division, in which the winner will receive $500 in cash! We are asking that the competitors wear a gi. If you are interested, or know someone that might be, please email your credentials to: [email protected]

    Thanks!

    The 8 man "Lock-Ness" is an OPEN weight tourney.

    Some of our past winners, include Nick Ackerman (the phenom w/ no legs from MFS), Jacob Volkman (current UFC fighter), Bruce Hoyer, and Red Schafer (former UFC fighter). We have also had quite a few high level MMA fighters compete in with the advanced divisions of our tournament, including Drew Dober, Eric Wisley, Erik Koch, Razak Al-Hassan, Jake Ellenberger, Red Schafer, and others. Thank you for your interest!

    Thank you, Aaron! :)

    Also, someone that you know real well has agreed to be a part of the "Lock-Ness" division! ;) It will be a gi only division this time! If I recall correctly, he made to the finals against a very tough Bruce Hoyer, in one of our last tournaments without the gi. I look forward to seeing him in action again. I can only assume that he has gotten a little better in the last 3 years or so! ;) lol

    Thanks again, Aaron, and I hope to see you there!

    Sean,

    If/when we have a budget that would allow something like that, I would love to! lol

    :wink:

    Edited to let you (Sean) know that this comment is for first comment about flying you out to compete. I didn't see your follow up comment, until I refreshed the page. Therefore, my reply to your Pan Ams comment is below! :)

    Sean,

    You aren't the first one to mention that to me! lol Although, it is flattering that people mention this, I think that our tournament in Iowa is more of a Midwest tournament at this point. I would love for it to grow to the point that we are on the same level as a tournament like the Pan Ams... but that is a LONG way in the future (if EVER)! lol

    Who else is going to this tournament? I believe we're sending at least 3 (including Kyle Nordstrom who is doing the pro-challenge).
