This competition is a fund-raiser for a relief organization called YeleHaiti (www.yele.org) All proceeds from the competition will be donated to your choice of a project by YeleHaiti, so this is a chance to compete, socialize, and do some social good!

So we all feel that we are involved in the process, we are going to "vote" on which YeleHaitiproject we will support. For each 5 touch bout you win, you'll get a to cast a vote for your favorite project; for each 15 touch bout you win, you get 3 votes! To help with your planning, here's a link to all the active YeleHaiti projects. (http://www.yele.org/projects/projects.html)

We will have medals and cool prizes from Yele.org for the finalists. And, there will be snacks, beverages, and music upstairs (our featured artist will be Wyclef Jean, the founder of YeleHaiti).

Hope to see you all there!

This is a USFA sanctioned event and all USFA rules will apply.
