The Causeway is closed from the Highbridge end. To reach Headquarters, take Harp Road, at the Fox & Goose pub on the A38, until you reach the crossroads on the Causeway. Please do not take the diversion to the left. Although there is a road closed sign to the right, we do have access along The Causeway to the H.Q.
Dan Grading invitations
Would Dan Grades please return the lower slip from the invitation to take their exam in 2016 - whether they are accepting or declining. We have a number of members who require a grading date and we are unable to give them one until all replies have been received. If Sensei Margaret does not receive a notification by the end of November it will be presumed that they are declining. So their names will be removed from the list, and they will have to wait until 2017 to see if there is a place.
The Advanced Sword course can only be booked once a member has attended at least 2 of the Basic Sword courses. As the number of places is limited to 14 members on each sword course they are taken quickly. We have 5 places left on the Advanced course and 4 on the Basic course in 2016.
Angela O’Rouke will be opening a new club in Birmingham in January so we send her our best wishes for the opening.
Linda Flynn has lost her bokken, so would all Dan Grades please please check that they have their own bokken and have not taken Linda’s by mistake while on a course.
