Our Dojo Gallery
20 February 2021
At the AGM a fantastic idea was discussed and that was to add a Dojo Gallery to the website.
Here is the result of that great idea. Anyone who has an account can publish picture in the gallery. Only the owner of a picture can remove it, but you can ask that person to remove a picture for any reason.
Sensei has already published some pictures from the last couple of years. More will be added!
Annual General Meeting
17 February 2021
We will be holding the clubs AGM on Wednesday 17th February at Khandallah Town Hall at 6:30pm. This is instead of our normal class and will take about half an hour.
We will provide a draft copy of the annual report before the meeting. So if you are unable to attend you can still have your say.
If you have not received a copy of the AGM documents and would like a set please send an email to Sensei (firstname.lastname@example.org).
