I thought I'd start a new thread to keep people up to date on the progress on this and also to manage expectations as to what my current plan is.
Wales as a region has 2 clubs - and I'm guessing if everyone turned up we'd struggle to hit 60 students and instructors.
Partly for that reason and partly for financial and practicality reasons I'm proposing a one day event in Cardiff, with some sort of social afterwards.
Clearly clubs from outside of Wales are welcome but it's likely that places will be limited.
The event will have a specific theme which will be announced once I've confirmed the Instructors and spoken to them.
Progress to date
Considering the interest shown here and feedback from other people I'm seriously looking at this happening.
I've contacted my preferred venue regarding costs, availability and resouces and I'm waiting for a response.
I've confirmed my lead Instructor a Third Dan that I personally rate as one of the best teachers I trained with. I won't be announcing names however until I've got everything finalised.
N.B. I haven't as of yet spoken to the Foundation regarding this as of yet so this is no way an OFFICIAL event at this time. 25/04/06
