Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving! Thats as close as I could find to a turkey.
A reminder that we are on again for Saturday at 10:00am for our continued exploration of the way of the lightsaber.
I would like to ask everyone to be careful with your lightsabres between my shoulder blades. Exercise will be alright for my tattoo, but lightsabre strikes won't.
As always, drop-in was fabulous
I noticed today that, sadly, it is already really dark even by 7:20pm. If we try for practises outside starting at 7pm then we won't have enough time out there to get much practise in. I think I'm going to have to call an end to open invitations to my yard/park for Monday evening practice.
Anyone out there with really high ceilings....?
Have fun this weekend everyone. I'll be in Vancouver for my Grandma's birthday, so I'll miss out on lightsabre fighting. May the Force be with you all.
We need Monday rehearsal space! Everyone call your local community centre and let?s get a room to swing the stick in.
-ShatirLavan, have a good weekend!
Dr. H. - do we have a cost update for Saturday's training? Have you had a chance to speak to Sifu Rob about it yet?
Just so we don't overlap our efforts too much in search of practice space, here's a list of the community centres I just emailed this morning. I'll keep track of responses and give a report once I've heard back from most of them:
Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill
I would have emailed Bridgeland too (they have a brand new hall and would be very central) but they have a scary online application form!
Are any of us U of C students, faculty or a U of C recreation member?
If so, tell me! It might provide a really cheap way to rent gym space.
I'm a student. I'm super busy today but I'll see if I can get price info before the meeting tonight.
That would be awesome - if you have time, look into the gyms as well as the dance studios. We might not be able to get an ongoing booking (like getting every Monday evening for 6 weeks or whatever), so maybe look into what one needs to do in order to make a booking week-to-week as well. It ought to be free for a student (it was when I was there anyway!) - the harder part will be finding open times (I think we are mostly interested in MOnday or Tuesday evenings).
I got the info, I'll bring it tonight. It would be free if it was a student group, but since we're not, 60/hour seems to be the going rate. That's the info that the secretary had, I might be able to see if the person in charge of bookings knows of any loopholes that could get us in cheaper or for free. See you guys tonight.
A loop-hole, eh. Hmmm...........like because it is for Star Wars?!!!! Would that be good enough?
