    Bear in mind that much of this is written hastily, as a play-by-play. I was running around a little in the beginning, and tried to keep up with the frenetic pace of some of the matches as the action was happening.

    Despite some last minute drop out and substitutions, there was plenty of drama in the Absolute divisions, and the round robin format with ADCC style rules ensured everyone got plenty of time on the mat.
