It was good to see everyone at our Teachers Meeting and Teachers Course, with Sensei, at the weekend, and we hope everyone had a good journey home.
The Autumn Seminar is this weekend (3rd October) with the course times on Saturday: 10.30 to 12.30 and 3 to 5pm. The Sunday Dan Grading is at 10am, but please note that the Sunday course time has now changed to 2.30 to 4.30pm. We require Dan Grade ukes for the Grading on the Sunday.
Would members please remember that Dan Grade application forms with cards, letter and balance of payment should be sent to the office at least 6 weeks before the grading date.

We congratulate J.Benson who obtained his 4th Dan.
A warning of potential disruptions in travel to H.Q. The Council is installing a new pumping station at the top of the Causeway, in Mark, and will be laying pipes along the Causeway, in stages. Initially, Dutch Road will be closed, so this will not affect your journey to H.Q. We will keep you informed of future road closures.
