OK, I've put together the flyer pretty much (basically the same as last flyer with the dates corrected... ;-)

But anyway it's here: http://www.kungfu.cc/campflyer04fall.doc

I may change the schedule up a bit as I plan it out, but the skeleton is there - basically train all the time. :lol:

BTW, please please spread this around - we need enough people to make this and do it up right.

If one of you can print out the flyer and have a bunch of them at Montoya's dojo that would be great.

Also, invite him personally and give him flyers - my emails to him don't seem to be getting through or something. Thanks!

Also, of course Dr. Hume and the Modern Arnis people are invited, nay encouraged to come again.

Gah! Blast! Drat and double drat!!

I've been invited to teach in Wichita, KS this weekend and I can't afford to turn that down. However, the next time you do this, I'll do my best to make it down. Your campout sounds like a lot of fun.

Sorry, Mike

:cry: Dang, and I was hoping to take advantage of your knowledge and maybe have you show a few things if you felt like sharing!

No prob though - we both know how difficult timing can get sometimes. We'll still look for you whenever you can make one. Perhaps if I can get a big enough group of people, I can even help defray some costs; we'll have to see. But I definitely think that you'd find it a blast as well as have some neat things to impart to my guys.

Yup. I'd love to come down some time - and plan to. Like I said, I'll try to make the next one.

UPDATE:

I need to start getting a head count for this camp, as I have some really top-notch guest instructors that most of you haven't worked with before coming and I don't want this to turn out to be poorly attended. If you want great training, details, and even (ack) want to see and train with me, then you need to be here. It's not like it's expensive - it's just time, and you'll all have had months to plan for that weekend so it should be a gimme.

Anyway, start posting here that you're coming and I'll start up the headcount and making teams.

Remember, it's Nov 12, 13, 14. Bring all your martial arts training stuff (except for pads and uniforms), food if you want, money for food if you want to eat out, someplace to sleep, etc. Training and camping, oh yeah!

Ack. I was planning on it, but that weekend unfortunately coincides with the A&M v. Texas Tech game... looks like I'll have to miss this camp out.

The late registration info is on the flyer. Pre-registration goes until Oct 25, 2004. You can show up as late as the start of Friday if you get there early enough to be included in the team distributions. Late registration (after Oct 25) will have an additional late-registration fee of $5.

Everybody still needs to fax or send in their registration forms, also.

Once I get the guest instructors confirmed, I'll make an announcement, add their information to the flyers, and all that.

I have pulled strings and have a solid commitment from Grandmaster Joe R. Lansdale to attend with his two top students, Professor Eugene Frizzell and Shihan Coy Harry. They'll bring a dummy as well.

I am extremely honored that they were willing to take time out of their schedules to be a part of this campout. They will be my most honored guests and will have a large block of time to guest instruct right after lunch on Saturday.

You all need to take advantage of this opportunity. These are definitely MAists of the highest calibre. I'm sure when Mike Casto gets back from China, he can tell you more firsthand info from an outside perspective.

We've been very lucky that each of our campouts have had some of the best instructors around, and you can see we are committed to continuing that tradition.

This post is for those who are undecided. Ask yourself this-"When is the last time I saw a quality martial arts seminar being put on for under $50." Well, here it is. It is $29 for not one, not two, but three days. Just think about all the hard training you put yourself through on a daily basis.
