Announcements - Powell Street Schedule Change and Gassuku Reminder

Hi All,

Just a couple of announcements, first regarding Powell Street Festival.  Our demonstration time has been moved to the following time slot:

1:15pm  - 1:45pm

Please ensure that if you are planning to be part of the demonstration, make sure you come to practice this Saturday, July 30th.

Also, Peter Gunstone sensei has requested some numbers and who is planning on attending this year's gassuku on the island.  So far as I know, myself, Vincent C, Konstantine, and Ron are planning on going, not sure who else. 

This is a great chance to meet iaidoka from other dojos, to get to know them as well as share things that we learn. 

Please come and talk to me in class and let me know as we are also organizing rides.

Thanks for reading,

Peter P.
