    Hello everybody,

    I recently received a nomination from the World Head of Family Sokeship Council for the Hall of Fame in San Antonio, Texas this May.
    This is my 3rd nomination but out of different reasons I could not accept the first 2.

    But this time I decided to accept and I will be coming to Texas in May.
    So I would like to know,if anybody anybody is interested to host seminar with me sometimes on on Thursday, the 21st of May or Sunday the 24th of May? Or sometimes aroud this date anyway. (22nd and 23rd is reserved for the hall of fame activities)

    Also I would like to communicate with Mark Lynn "the boar man" from Texas again, but his emails address I have seems not to be valid any more.
    So if someone has it I would be glad to get it.

    You can contact me either through this forum or send me a mail to


    I am looking forward to any reply.

    Regards from Germany

    Hello Arnisador,

    the events went well.
    Due to the long weekend, there were not many participants, but all of those enjoyed the lessons.

    Due to the very positive feedback of the seminars, there are talks, that I may come back to Texas next year, but things have to be well planned. we let you know, if the plans become more precise.

    During the Hall of Fame I got the HoF award "Grandmaster of the year" and I was accepted and introduced as a new member of the "World Head of Family Sokeship Council", WHFSC, and as a member of the board of the council.

    This was very nice and I feel honored to be a part of the WHFSC now.
