Announcements for the Week of April 22 to 28, 2012

Photo Day 

Photo day will be on May 17, 2012 at 6:30 P.M.  Please make sure your gi is clean!
This year we were able to negotiate a special deal with the photographer, so the club will pay for the basic package.  Additional photos will be available for purchase.

JCI Carnival 

The JCI Carnival will be on Saturday June 23 and Sunday June 24, 2012.  This year the Judo Club will again staff the Tamale booth and hopefully, the 6-ball Game booth.  We are encouraging each family to sell 2 books or $20 of JCI Carnival Tickets.  Each ticket is an entry into JCI's raffel and is worth $1 towards the purchase of food or games at the carnival.  JCI charges the Judo Club a minimal amount for rent each month, this is how we can maintain our curent monthly dues.  In exchange for the support we receive from JCI, the Judo Club needs to turn out at the carnival and help as much as we can.   Please see Nikki Langit or Mary Fujita our Carnival Co-chairs for tickets or information about volunteering at the booths.
