A lot of things happening so a quick post to help inform everyone and plan stuff in the diary.
We have 2 exciting opportunities for seminars on 11 March

We have slowed down how many new students we take in as we're not sure if there's space.
For new students waiting for uniforms, apologies for the delay.
The start of the year is always very hectic for the embroiders, we are ordering over 100 uniforms and it is taking some time on the supplier's end.
Demo Team Tryouts
We've told some belt levels and also some people have seen it in the calendar.
We will have demo team tryouts Saturday 11 Feb
We will split the existing demo team into 2 teams (Team A and Team B) and are looking to add new students (especially high school and older students).
