I think I know a good spot by my place, where if you pick the right tide you can work the current in one direction, take a lunch break during the turn, then work the other way. That tide happens to occur on Sunday, May 7.

Fred, I'm with you for the Spey class.
A saltwater estuary would make an interesting class room

This is great. It is good that Hannah is on her way. I am looking forward to the beach class. By the way, I said hello to Juro and John at the Wilmington show and discussed the upcoming class with Juro. Without prompting he led me out to the parking lot and gave me a mini lesson on the two handed CND rod. It has helped already. Juro is so enthusiastic about two handed casting and such a great guy. I am really looking forward to the beach class with everyone else...it will be a blast.

Glad it worked out.
I'm looking to learn to spey cast if there's a few others that want to form up a class.

2-handed beach cast
Coordinate with others interested in the "Beach Casting" and let me know date...I'll be there!

Hannah's a GO!!!!!
I just received word that all systems are go for Osaka Japan, the fund raising effort in which we made a big dent has created the opportunity for talent to meet destiny, hope to meet dreams in a timeless place where the martial arts has some serious roots.
Thanks to all for making this such a success as we wrap up the enrollment for the fundraiser classes and call it a win/win. I will be making arrangements ASAP to work with you individually and in small groups (based on similar class interest).
Let's all acknowledge a FORUM style kudos for our brothers who rose to this occasion as we often do:
James W. Shepherd III
Michael C. Doogue
Fred A. Abrahamson
Guys I really look forward to seeing you making beautiful effortless casts with the ancient art of two-handed flyrods in the modern application. It is my mission to deliver that to you.
Also a thank you to our mystery woman Anne Smith who made a generous contribution and gesture of friendship from her daughter who is a Canadian karate competition winner as well.
In the end it's these types of things that make us who we are. Thanks for stepping up so together we can make something big happen for a teen who deserves a shot.
with highest appreciation and respect,

|juro||Thanks guys! Due to a sciatic nerve problem I've been nursing for about a week I opted to stay out of the dojo tonight but will confirm by email and will report status tomorrow evening.|

|Adrian||PM's you also - hope this comes together for Hanna!|
|03-07-2006 08:13 PM|
Juro- mine went out in the mail yesterday. Hope it's not too late....
|03-07-2006 05:16 PM|
Thanks Pete and Fred!
It's March and the dates are coming up quick! Please get your tuitions to Mrs. Kaltenbach and let me know so we can schedule classes.
I will be talking to Sensei and Hannah tonight or tomorrow night.
|02-28-2006 04:20 PM|
Check your PM's
|02-22-2006 11:08 PM|
Thank you all!!!
After class tonight I met with Sensei and Hanna's mother. It only took a moment to see that our help will be even more important than what we might have thought; our help is going to be absolutely critical to this happening.
For each person who was kind enough to sign up, I will provide the mailing address and contact information for Hanna's mother by private message. Once your tuition has reached her, they will let me know and I will make arrangements to meet you for the class of your choice (per the original post).
I vow that these will be the best prepared, most effective classes I have put together to date in the spirit of Hanna's journey to Osaka. Their appreciation goes beyond words, so let's do right by them with our actions.
I can't tell you how good this makes me feel. Sometimes my mind wanders about thinking about what the FORUM yields for all the work it can involve... but at times like this there is not one iota of doubt what it means... community.
I will send the information within the next 24 hours and again, thank you.

South Beach in May...what a fine classroom.
I will be the Vinnie Barbarino to your Mr. Kotter. May I never graduate....
|02-21-2006 06:39 PM|
Tomorrow night there is a meeting on this at the dojo so I should have all the info I need by then. You can send the payment directly to Hannas' mother and I will receive notice from them and schedule you accordingly. I will make the dates work for you, there will be several dates published so you can make one of them.
Thanks and please look for details tomorrow night.
