Team Douvris Shines in Windsor
At Team Douvris, we like to go the distance. And how. This past weekend a small but determined group of road warriors drove from Ottawa all the way to Windsor to take part in the Southern Ontario Open, where we brushed up against fierce competition from the area, including many American athletes from Michigan.
There were only seven of us competing (plus Sensei Mike Cope, who came to work as a referee) and we are pleased to report we all came back home with some bling. Below are our results.
Many thanks to Brian Brunelle and his team for a fantastic tournament!
