Saturday June 11th, at the Panther Island Pavilion in Ft Worth, the Dallas Sumo Club will be holding the “Cowboy Cup” amateur sumo event. Scheduled to run from noon to 4:00 PM, the tournament will feature rikishi from the local sumo club, Dark Circle in Austin, Mighty Eagle sumo from San Antonio, along with competitors from across the country.
Your truly will be part of the crew putting on the event, and you may even hear my voice on the live stream that is schedule to accompany the action at the Panther Island Pavilion. If you are in the greater DFW area, and wish to come watch, you can purchase tickets here – get tickets

There will be a fair number of US sumo media people, including Jake from Grand Sumo Breakdown, Leslie from Sumo Kaboom, and of course my own self.
This should be a fun and interesting competition, it is taking place outdoors, in Texas, in June on a day when the temperature will be above 100°F (~38°C). If you come, bring some shade and be ready for red hot sumo!
