The Thursday time from 3:30-4:20 sounds good to me. As for the taiko
event, I think it would be preferrable to have Stuart come to UVM
since last year it attracted a lot of people.
P.S. Mamemaki went pretty well. There was a lot to clean up, but we
got it done quickly.
Quoting Mutsumi Corson <[log in to unmask]>:
> Japanese House no minasan,
> How was "mamemaki" yesterday? Hope you had a lot of fun.
> I am finalizing the workshop activities and I would like to know when

> I haven't asked Kimiko-san (the instructor) yet, but I would like to
> choose the time most of the members could join.
> Last semester, when we had the tea ceremony workshop, Thursday
> 3:30-4:20, most of you seemed to be able to come. Does that time work

> you, I will try to have other workshops in this hour, too.
> I remember that you are talking about the taiko(Japanese drum)? Would
> you like to have Stuart Paton at uvm or would you like to go to the
> dojo (208 Flynn Ave. Burlington)
