Grading in March

As Andrew mentioned in the previous post, the VKR wants to know how many people wish to grade this March. Please email me asap (i.e. by this Thursday 28 Jan) with the names, grades and VKR numbers of all those in your household wanting to grade from 6 kyu up to and including 4 dan.

The voting for these positions will be at the next AGM which will be held in March.

First training back - Saturday 6 February

For our first training we will start at the usual time, 9am but we will have a shorter training, finishing at 10am. We will then have a club meeting to discuss issues relating to the year:

  • training times and days for rest of 2021
  • choosing beginners' course instructor and related issues
  • ongoing issues related to COVID
  • ongoing club admin roles

As per VKR guidelines, if the day is forecast to be hotter than 36 degrees then training will be cancelled. This decision will be made on the Friday. In that case the club meeting will still go ahead via Zoom. Meeting ID will be the same as previous trainings during lockdown.
