Well, I'm still a bit tentative given my schedule, but I'm hoping to be there. And hey, I can bring some sharp pointy things with me too.

Count me in!

Can folks from the area recommend some hotels, or PM me and let me know which hotel/motels to stay away from (as ever area has these). Please/thanks.

Re: AikiWeb Workshop 2009: March 20-22, 2009 in Seattle WA

For accommodations close to Two Cranes many places to stay are grouped either near the University of Washington or on Aurora Ave near Green Lake.

University District had a reasonable list near the University of Washington. Depending on finances I would probably stay near here. If you don't have a car, bus service from the U to Two Cranes is pretty good.

Green Lake - Aurora Area had some places in another area with motels.

Aurora has a deserved reputation for drugs, gangs and prostitution. I wait for a bus in the area at night after training, I remain alert. Stuff happens. Check the places carefully and you'll probably be fine. It's hard to tell which motels on Aurora are renting rooms by the hour. The Nexus by Northgate looks pretty good from the outside. The University district has occasional violence, students, and the prices are probably higher.

Personally I would seriously not try for a place on Aurora South of 85th and North of the bridge. Some are really cheap but you probably will not find them using the internet.

I don't have any personal experience with these places. I've known lots of people that stayed happily at the University Inn. Downtown Seattle also has many places. Seatac is 30 miles away and I would get something local rather than stay there.

If you have a particular place in mind you could send me a PM. I travel near some of these places daily, some weekly and might be able look them over for you.

Regards,
Mark

What Mark said about Aurora. I've had family stay at the Extended Stay America just off Aurora before and it's fine. Particularly good if you want to pick up some food for your stay and do some of you own cooking since each room is more like a studio apartment than a hotel room. The drive would be 10-15 minutes from the dojo.

I don't know if I can swing it, but with so many people I've been wanting to meet and train with coming, I'm going to put some effort into trying...

Best,

Yeah, the good stuff, intent!

Well, going through a job change in December...don't know how that is going to work out yet. But if everyone stays moderately healthy, I'll have the vacation time. Keep a good thought!

Thumbs up Re: AikiWeb Workshop 2009: March 20-22, 2009 in Seattle WA

I just joined the forum (though I have been lurking for a while), so this is my first opportunity to comment. Many thanks to Jun for organizing this seminar! I am sure it will be great.

I had the opportunity to meet and train with Popkin Sensei and Ledyard Sensei at Howard's last seminar in the Seattle area. It was both enjoyable and enlightening. I look forward to training with both of you again at the upcoming seminar, and meeting and training with Threadgill Sensei.

Pat

Hi Mark,

At the moment, we're hoping to have a maximum of about fifty participants. If we reach near that number, I'll consult again with the instructors (as well as Kimberly) to see if we want more folks.

Thanks for the question,

Looks like I've talked the wife into it. I've got family up in Edmonds so I'm planning on bringing up the kid to visit while I go play... Now just to hope I hit the window right for air fare...

Marc, it'll be great to see you again, as always!

Jeremy, I'm looking forward to meeting you and others from the (in)famous TNBBC.

Will there be any others whom I can expect, at this time, to see at the upcoming AikiWeb Workshop?

Best,

I'm popping my registration in the mail today. 50 people is just about perfect for that space.

I'm planning on attending! Toby Threadgill is an excellent technician and teacher and a helluva nice guy, George Ledyard is virtually an institution here in the PNW, and I look forward to meeting Howard Popkin and feeling his technique. What a great line up!

I hope to be able to confirm the dates shortly as far as airfare. I heard over the weekend that several carriers are dropping prices...hopefully that will apply to fares that far out.

Best,
Ron

Well, they're not going to stay, just visit, like a temporary Nickelsville in your back yard.

Tom, I for one look forward to your visit. I have room enough for you, Alan, and Doug to sleep in my large bushy pompadour.
