    10AM-??? Park session, grills running 1130-1
    During day, random sessions or more organized stuff, TBD

    A few other folks have asked about demos and also sharing some of their arts. I'm hoping that the Sunday portion will also fill up a bit. Also, I'm working on a big "maybe" for some space on Friday as well.

    Sunday will be a pot-luck in the park. I'm running the grill and will be coordinating with folks to bring drinks (non-alcoholic only, sorry), plates/utensils/cups, and some other foods. I'm bringing the burgers n dogs. There's an Aldi's and a supermarket 5 minutes away from the school and the hotel, so no one has to worry about being from out of town and not knowing where anything is. (Maps will be available again.)

    I'm off to see the midnight showing of The Dark Knight soon...are people from the M&G going?

    That's a yet to be confirmed thing as far as I know. I'm up for it, but it depends on my 4 year old.

    Meet & Greet was great! I did have to bail on going to see The Dark Knight, but I believe at least the crew from Boston did go. Datu Hartman's school is very nice. In fact I've only seen one other that's as nice and that's Prof. Jordan Pallen's school in San Leandro. (He's got a little more floor space, but no big screen TV.) Thanks to everyone who taught, and to Bob and Datu Hartman for putting it together!

    Thanks again to Bob and Tim for Hosting the Eevent!

    Brock it was great training with you! Thanks so much.

    The instructors were great and I especially enjoyed Brians session and Tim's. Broack and I had a blast tagging on different Silat throws onto the openeings that Brian had us working.. Great fun!

    Erik, James and I did end up going to see The Dark Knight with Tim and Mark. It was AWESOME! The Lines were crazy huge but we got great seats and the new theater was VERY comfy.

    All told we had a tremendous time and will be back next year!

    Hey Rob,

    Glad you enjoyed my session. I enjoyed teaching it. [​IMG] While I could only stay for a while and would dearly have liked to stay for more. The Meet and Greet was great for me as I finally got to put some faces to names and everyone was very cool. Definitely I will go back as well! [​IMG] Special thanks to Bob and Tim for hosting it.

    As to the Dark Knight. The wife and I will be seeing it this weekend. [​IMG]
