Holiday Training News

Merry Christmas everyone! The last official training session for the year will be this Sunday the 17th. Out last session will be informal and involve some games and sparring followed some by food and (non-alcoholic) drinks. If you are coming along, please remember bring a plate (some finger food) or something to drink.

There will be no official training sessions over the holiday period. However, there will very likely be unofficial training sessions on Sundays and Thursdays at the Meola Road scout hall. To find out if someone will be at the hall please post a message on our Facebook discussion group.

Official training will restart again on the 14th of January. In the new year we will start with a Sword and Shield course run by Greg and  after that we will be doing the very popular Spear course again with Daniel Wyatt.

Also, don’t forget there will be no official training on Auckland Anniversary weekend.
