Many things have happened since the last time I blogged. When I last wrote we had just finished our first week of Grand Prix in China and had three left to go.

Hello from Nagoya Japan,

Grand Prix is a month long tournament spent in a different country every week. Each week we play a round robin type tournament with three other teams. It is a difficult tournament to win because there is a lot of travel involved which translates to often playing in different time zones each week against some of the top teams in the world. Last week we had the opportunity to play Serbia, Kazakhstan ...
