Thank you. Mark MacLeod Chairman Atlantic Kendo Association P.O. Box 36110 Halifax, NS, B3J 3S9, Canada URL: www.kikentai.org/atlantickendo/ EMAIL: [log in to unmask] My name is Mark MacLeod, founder, instructor, and president of the Dalhousie University Kendo Club in Halifax, NS, Canada. After one year of operation (Sept 1999), we have had 150 members attend our Kendo lessons. In response to the growing popularity of Kendo in Halifax, and a need for supportive infrastructure in this geographically isolated region, I established the Atlantic Kendo Association. We seek affiliation with Kendo and swordfighting organizations situated in close proximity to us, as the nearest major Kendo Clubs in Canada are situated in Montreal – a distance of 1800km from Halifax! The Atlantic Kendo Association will provide the following: i) a Kendo Club “circuit” for competitions, exchanges, seminars, and CKF kyu-level grading (for Canadian Clubs). ii) a permanent information network that will enable member and supporting Dojos to keep up to date on upcoming events in Maritime Canada and North Eastern USA. iii) a small WWW page for member Kendo Clubs (and supporting Kendo Federations) hosted on my personal server – at no cost, and assist with promoting Kendo in your community. iv) to establish an annual Kendo Competition in a city that is mutually convenient for all member Kendo Clubs and supporting Kendo Federations – in Maine, Vermont, or New Brunswick. Established two weeks ago, the Atlantic Kendo Association consists of 3 members, we are looking forward to establishing a formal relationship with your organization to expand our network of supportive Kendoka and Kendo Clubs. To assist us in our first year of operation, we request a donation of $25 CDN (payable to the Atlantic Kendo Association) as a one time fee. Looking forward to your support, Mark MacLeod Chairman Atlantic Kendo Association _________________________________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at http://www.hotmail.com.
