Leaving Thursday for summer camp?

It looks like I will not be able to leave for camp until Thursday afternoon. Is anyone else leaving this late and want to share a ride?

Demo at the County Fair

Next Thursday, July 10th, is our next demo. We will be at the Monroe County Fair at the dome center from 6-8pm

Aikidoka: Demo participants see Brian for the Fair admission and parking passes. Practice will be this Thursday night. There will be changing rooms, but there is also plenty of space behind the curtains in our area.

Fair schedule for Thursday

Where to go:
Parking will be tough, try carpooling and getting there early.
