Keep up to date with summer camp details
Dear Chief Instructors, Dojo Members, and Summer Camp Attendees,
Thanks for making Birankai Summer Camp 2011 in Forest Grove, Oregon a great success! Now that you are home and rested, you can revisit the great training and community experienced this year in Forest Grove with photo items and shirts from Summer Camp 2011.
Please enjoy the link to the summer camp photos, generously donated by all our volunteer photographers! High resolution photographs are available for purchase online. Our camp photographer, Jon Perrin, also put together a beautiful photobook of ~150 pictures and is offering a CD of ~500 photos for personal use. These items offer great value and let you preserve your memories of Summer Camp 2011. All proceeds from the sale of these items support Birankai North America.
Finally, if you or someone you know missed the opportunity to buy a Summer Camp 2011 t-shirt or sweatshirt, featuring the five pillars of aikido (centered, connected, whole, lively, open), these are now available for a limited time on a first come, first serve basis. They make great presents and further support our organization.
Thank you again for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you on the mat soon.
The 2011 Birankai Summer Camp Organizing Committee
We will accept t-shirt and sweatshirt order via email through November 1st. Orders for photo items will be accepted until further notice.--
