The Ocean State Grand Nationals on April 9+10th will have some minor changes. The Crowne Plaza Hotel was unable to have the Pavilion built in time for this year’s tournament; therefore, there is not enough room right inside of the hotel to run all the Black Belt AND Underbelts divisions. We will be running the entire tournament, Fri. night, Sat. daytime and the Sat. nighttime finals across the street from the hotel at the Plaza building. This building is owned by the Crowne Plaza and is large enough to run all the divisions in one hall, rather than the several ballrooms at the hotel. All ranks and all rings will be in one building / hall!! This will be much easier for all the instructors or family members that have more than one person competing. There will be ample parking there or you can park / stay at the hotel and take the shuttle across the street.
With the change of venue, the ring assignments have changed slightly, so please check them out at www.oceanstategrandnational.net.
