Volunteers Needed!

Message/Request from Ryan Lidell:

For All Instructors & Students 2nd-kyu and above.

Brad Dingman is establishing a “dojo” in Ithaca. Previously stated, I feel we should support his effort. In my opinion that support should be in the form of qualified, quality uke, achieving two goals:

A. Establish Brad’s authority though model behavior and proper ukemi.

B. Assist Brad in his continued development.

Therefore, I have volunteered my time, one Monday evening every month for the foreseeable future. I ask that any student, initially 2nd-kyu and above, commit to one Monday evening each month, rotated as follows:

Tentatively, Brad wishes to commence on Monday, 8 Oct 2012. I will be there. Subsequently, I will assist Brad every 2nd Monday of each month until assistance is no longer required.

Volunteers will assist Brad the 4th Monday each month, one month per each student. Theoretically, additional volunteers will assist Brad once every 12 months, number dependent.

The following is a proposed schedule for the next 12 Months:

Ryan: 8 Oct 2012
Student: 22 Oct 2012

Ryan: 12 Nov 2012
Student: 26 Nov 2012

Ryan: 10 Dec 2012
Student: NA

Ryan: 14 Jan 2013
Student: 28 Jan 2013 – Weather dependent

Ryan: 11 Feb 2013
Student: 25 Feb 2013 – Weather dependent, 1st Monday following February Recess

Ryan: 11 Mar 2013
Student: 25 Mar 2013 – Weather dependent, Beginning of Passover

Ryan: 8 Apr 2013
Student: 22 Apr 2013

Ryan: 13 May 2013
Student: NA

Ryan: 10 Jun 2013
Student: 24 Jun 2013

Ryan: 8 Jul 2013
Student: 22 Jul 2013

Ryan: 12 Aug 2013
Student: 26 Aug 2013

Ryan: 9 Sept 2013
Student: 23 Sept 2013

Dates we will NOT assist:
24 Dec 2012 (Christmas Eve)
27 May 2013 (Memorial Day)

Dates weather dependent (These dates still must filled. However, should inclement weather prevent one from assisting Brad, we will NOT reschedule):
28 Jan 2013
25 Feb 2013
25 Mar 2013

Dates need filled by specific volunteers unaffected by circumstances:
25 Feb 2013 (1st Monday following February Recess) – No Parents of school aged children
25 Mar 2013 (Beginning of Passover) – Respect our Jewish Students

This schedule is solid, regardless of Brad’s start date. Should he be unexpectedly delayed, we will simply begin our assistance at that point. I will be sure to attend his 1st class.

Thank you, Hugh, for being the first volunteer.
