My friends (Emily and Bob, from Grande Prairie) had a few of their items stolen from their vehicle earlier on this afternoon. Among those items were a camcorder and a digital camera. There were footages and pictures from the Mind Body Soul tournament.
I do realize that it would be close to impossible to find who broke into their vehicle, let alone track down their missing items; however, I also don't want them to be turned off from returning to Edmonton for any future tournaments.
I believe we can help them out a little by providing some of our memories of the event, so that they can have something that they can share to their friends and families.
If you have Emily e-mail address, then send some of your pics or vids to her (especially those that captures either Bob or Emily in action). If you've got some footage of the tournament up on Youtube, send her the link (or post it here). If you don't have her contact info, you can send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll forward them to her.
If you've got an account on Facebook, upload them there (especially on the Arashi-Do group page, provided that you are a "member" of the group). Emily does have a Facebook account, so she should be able to access them (or I can direct her to that page).
I'm not asking that you upload all your photos; just the ones containing images of either Emily or Bob. FYI, Emily competed in the women's (over 140) BJJ and women's (over 140) no-gi; Bob competed in the men's (heavyweight) intermediate BJJ and the men's (heavyweight) intermediate no-gi. Please help out some fellow competitors.
Much is appreciated for your help,
