"To answer your question, all formal training will be
daytime between 9 ish and 4 ish. Evenings will be either social plans
with group (e.g, partay), or optional small training sessions for such
things s Aikido, maybe Reiki, etc."
Both Shinjos, Gushi, and Sensei Thompson.
Who would want to miss out? Not me.
Again - please let Rik know if you plan to attend so he can get a head count.
> The Koshukai for 2006 is threatened because of the low projected
> participation. It's not for lack of RSVP from the group; most (but not all)of you have indeed responded to my request... Thank you for that.
> It's the actual participant numbers themselves which are disappointing. With the current projected participation numbers, we are about 1/3 the way to the break even point at the present fee structure (see www.UechiMD.com Koshukai
> buttons). For your further reconsideration, I am extending the head count due date until February 11.
> Please encourage more of folks from your dojo and region who can commit to participate in the Koshukai. We need to know by Saturday February 11. After that date, we may need to consider another sort of action based on lack of interest (increase the registration fees or cancel the event). I need to be transparent and tell you all that we will not go forward with this event if a substantial financial loss is projected.
> Just to be clear, I take no offense if folks cannot come. However, if you cannot make it, please encourage your students and colleagues to attend and respond by 2/11.
> I want folks to come here because they want to train with the Masters for a week of training and fun.
> In the end, participation will most significantly determine the fate of Koshukai 2006. It's up to you now.
