The first tournament of the season is coming soon, like real soon, specifically it starts Friday. The season for me will kick off this upcoming weekend right here in Houston at the Metal and Muscle Expo.
This will be the first tournament I’ll compete in with my new team, the TIRR Texans and will feature some tough competition. The teams at the tournament, besides my own will be the Texas Stampede from Austin, the Shepherd Smash from Atlanta, the Denver Harlequins, the Brooks Bandits from Jacksonville, the North Texas Cowboys from Dallas and the San Antonio Steel.
Here’s the schedule:
And a link to the tournament's page on the official Quad Rugby calendar is here.
This will certainly be a test to see both how well my training has done for me and how our team is meshing. It will be a new experience for all of us as we try to adjust to our new lines and the new style of play that accompanies those changes.
It will be a nice chance for me to shake off the competitive rust that I’ve built up. I haven’t actually competed in a tournament since December of 2012, so it will be awesome to get back on the court and beat up on some people in wheelchairs.
So look out for my next post which should give a nice summary of the tournament, and if you want the most up-to-date info, be sure to follow me on twitter @Eric_Ingram.
