Tai Chi Santa

The season is here when the totally irrational part of my head tells me it’s time to eat so many mince pies that it should be made illegal. I hope you have a good one people!

2013 has been a very busy and successful year. We had the largest attendance for World Tai Chi Day that we have ever had (just over 100 people turned out), then nine weeks of daily classes in the Arcadian Centre and open air classes in the park for Birmingham Council’s Active Parks pilot scheme.

Below are the dates when classes re-start in the New Year (for our full class list see here). But before that, some thank you’s.

I know he always plays it down, but I must give credit to Keith. He is the backbone of World Tai Chi Day and never takes any credit for his part. The Arcadian Centre sessions would not have been possible without him and I appreciate all the hard work that he has put in to this year’s projects. Thank you mate.

As always, I must thank Fleur for all her help this year. I do realise that without her help and cooperation I would not be able to do many of the things that I take for granted. It never fails to amaze me that she backs me up when I want to do something new. How does she put up with me?

My thanks go to Mike for all his support and assistance yet again, Samantha for the Arcadian and Fan sessions, June for her help and patience and James for doing his thing on Mondays. Little Jenny has put up with me for another year and Mark’s help on Friday night is always gratefully accepted along with help from his daughter Katie on the odd occasion!

Last but by no means least, a big thank you to Dave for his website/facebook/twitter efforts.

My thanks to all of you that help out every week. I do realise that without you, there wouldn’t be any classes!
