Tournament Background:
Dear Sensei, Athletes and Officials:

You are cordially invited to attend the Oregon State Championship and 2017 USA-NKF Qualifier on Saturday, May 13th at Multnomah Athletic Club in downtown Portland, Oregon. The event is open to all athletes who would like to compete in a high-caliber tournament with qualified officials and is mandatory for those who hope to qualify for the USANKF National Championships and Team Trials in Greenville, South Carolina in July 2017.

As your Oregon State ASO, I look forward to a fine event with many outstanding competitors. Individual participation and support are critical to a successful federation and I ask that you join me on tournament day as a competitor, official, volunteer or spectator. For athletes who have already qualified for the USA National Championship this event will provide you with valuable "mat time" in a competitive event. Competitors do not need to compete to qualify for our National Championship. This is also and excellent event for athletes new to competition and for those who just enjoy the competitive aspect of karate. Rules will be in accordance with USANKF rules with modifications in equipment and officials responsibilities.

I welcome and apprecitate the participation of officials with all levels of certfification. Dress will be in accordance with USANKF rules consisting of gray slacks, blue blazer, white shirt, tie, blue/black socks and black shoes. There will be an officials meeting at 9:30 with the tournament beginning promptly at 10am.

For more information regarding equipment and rules, please refer to www.usankf.org and click Official Resources.

Sincerely,

Bill Plapinger
USA-NKF of Oregon
