  1. First, I appreciate the late notice considering plane tickets are incredibly more expensive. Second, I appreciate cancelling once this was booked. My life is jiu jitsu and the little money I have goes to it. Now, I have no way to cancel and will waste 240 dollars on a trip I won’t take, the money more than likely costing me the opportunity to compete in the actual trials. thank you, thank you, thank you.
