==============================

I've got everything finalized. We will be at the Comfort Inn Palm Beach Lakes:

1901 Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard

The room rates will be $81.00/Per Room (Including Taxes) which includes continental Breakfast. We need to fill approx. 10-15 rooms.

We will have the Meeting/Banquet Room for ourselves starting on Friday evening from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, All day Saturday, and 9:00 am- 12:00 noon on Sunday at no charge!

The Comfort Inn is located in heart of West Palm Beach:

George:

Hope everything is well. New update the venue is starting to come together.

Gilbert Venero- Go-Dan in JKF Goju-Karate, has committed to a 1-2 hour clinic on Kumite, preferrably on Sunday Morning! His clinics are lots of fun, he will put on an enjoyable clinic for everyone to participate.

Also want to mention that the following week, he will be hosting a one day clinic in Ft. Lauderdale with Wayne Otto- WKF multible World Kumite Champion! My understanding is that Wayne Otto's background is in Uechi-Ryu, that training event will have participants both from the AAU and the USANKF organizations from around the country, so for the serious Kumite competitor this could be a clinic that we can extend an invititation to our Uechi family!

I have also spoken with Richard Potrekeus and he is on board again for the second year and will push to have a stronger showing from around the state.

As we get closer, please let me know if there is anything else that we may want to offer!

{Anyone for a fishing trip prior to the event???}
