Osu Shihan, Sensei & Sempai,

I would like to invite you to the United States Kyokushin Open XV! The U.S. Open will be held at the Grand Summit Resort at Sunday River Ski Resort. The Grand Summit Resort is a great location with every need in one place – lodging, restaurant, and tournament in one location. Bring your skis!

Tournament date is April 8th, 2017

The event is located in Newry/Bethel Maine with many quality eateries and local Maine shopping. The resort has rooms with kitchens and there is a local grocery store in town too. About one hour away is Conway, New Hampshire where you can shop tax-free as it has many different outlet stores.

People are under the impression that Maine is far away. You will find that we are the same distance for instance from Windsor Ontario to Rochester NY. So why don’t you give the U.S. Open a chance? Each year we better ourselves, which is our goal. For those of you looking to fly into Portland Maine Jetport (PWM), I recommend checking out the discount airlines such as JetBlue and Southwestern Airlines.

The amenities at the hotel include but are not limited to; year-round indoor/outdoor heated pool, weight room restaurant with full bar and sandwich shop.

On behalf of all the staff of the United States Kyokushin Open, I would like to say we look forward to seeing you very soon. OSU!

Kind Regards,

Martin R. Petrovich
