Greg Murphy

All the BUKA students.

Special Thanks to George Pantous for EVERYTHING you did!

and <font color="blue"> a VERY SPECIAL THANKS to Gary Khoury for giving me the idea to hold this celebration.</font> Gary it was every much as fun and exciting as you said it would be. I will tell you about it at the regional on Saturday.

The students perfomed well for the masters, and although it was their first official demonstration, they were really giving it all they had, no one was nervous.

I am very proud of the performance of my students and I look foward to another year of hard training with them at the BUKA.

Domo Arigato to all who attended.
