JCDC did an awesome performance, and we also had an awesome paper crane demonstration.
Also thanks for everyone who came to the rice ball workshop Wednesday night, CSA really loved them. Everyone who ate them liked them as well, CC says you are all pros! J

On Friday was our Haunted Temple Event! It had a few bumps here and there but overall it went great, and everyone had a good time! For everyone who helped with every aspect of this event thank you so much, it would not have been as great if it wasn’t for all of you.
We are trying to find a place for our restaurant trip so if anyone has any suggestions please let us know!
Post your suggestions in the FORUMS ;)

Wear comfortable clothes that you are comfortable moving around in. These are some things that you SHOULD NOT WEAR:
-jeans of any kind (skinny jeans, jeans that are so big for you they sag down to your knees, etc.)
-skirts (mini or otherwise)
-jewelry (Matt Bosque, this means NO DRILL. >I)
-obi. Even if you've taken some kind of martial arts before, your belt rank is invalid unless you've trained in Shito-Ryu karate. So wear a gi if you have one, but wear a white belt with it.
-shoes! Yes, I will ask all of you to remove all footwear during the lesson.
SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD WEAR:
Women - wear or bring a sports bra if you have one. Your boobs will thank you.
Men - wear or bring an athletic cup/supporter. Your man parts will thank you.
***If you don't have these things, you have the whole weekend to get them***
If you show up in jeans, skirts, or jewelry, you will not be allowed to participate. Sports bra (for women) and cup (for men) are optional, but highly encouraged.
Meeting begins: 5:36 Meeting ends: 6:30
