We've had a sudden influx of 5 new girls. One who joined a short while ago and then another four came along last week. One is an old student who's already 2nd kyu and she brought 2 friends and the last walked in on her own.

Nice to see all these new faces and they're not faring too badly on the mat. Think there are a couple of new boys too but as I don't have as much contact with them I don't really keep track.

The fine white cloud of dust has deterred a few but all the die hards are still showing up and sticking it out. We've also got better at coping with it and now mopping the mats before hand has taken on a heightened importance.

Thanks! Yes, it's fun having new people around. And it's great that you've had a similar experience with newcomers.

Yeah for new people! Have fun with them! We have had a sudden influx of newbies too in this last month. They seem to gather at our Wednesday night class - which is making it quite hard to find mat space sometimes.
