Here's the deal: let's meet at the dojo at 8:30 am. This will give us 1/2 hour
to load the mats into the truck and drive to Essex. We should arrive around
9:30 which will give us time to lay them out and get into our gi's (there's
changing rooms there). The actual event starts at 10.
I'll try to bring some snacks for breakfast, but please pack a bag lunch. We'll
be working with the kids until about 2 in the afternoon and we should be back
in Burlington, returning the mats by 3:30, at the latest.
I can give folks a ride down to the dojo if you let me know by tonight.
By the way, Becky: you can still help out if you'd like, we really just need you
to make sure the kids don't hurt themselves and encourage them to try aikido.
If you don't have time, I understand. I just wanted you to know that you're
help will be appreciated no matter what your experience.
