Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I think we should let folks have Monday for travelling - How do folks feel about Saturday afternoon and Sunday? or are y'all thinking just one day - in which case Sunday allows travel days each side....

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

How every you guys want for days is fine by me.

Hum Aman Dhillon, we have an Aman not sure of last name. He is a beginner and started about 1 1/2 months ago. Have not seen him in training for about 3 weeks, so not sure if he will continue.

Thanks
Bruce

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I was personally thinking about one day, and that is what would be easiest for me to plan. Saturday would be my pick, that gives people travel time on Sunday, and still one day to rest up at home on Monday.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

So I assume we are doing this and on Sat Sept 3rd at Aikido of Diablo Valley in Concord. We have a regular class from 10 to 12, but we can turn that into the meet up. Then maybe a quick break from lunch, say back at 2 and for from 2 to 4? The link below has a map to the dojo.

http://www.advdojo.org/newmap.html

The address is :
Aikido of DiabloValley
1674 Challenge Drive, Concord, Ca 94520
phone: 925-676-6763

Thanks
Bruce

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Sounds good to me. Will other folks besides me be staying overnight and traveling Sunday? If so we may want to stay later than 4, maybe 5 then having dinner together?

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I'll be driving up on Friday and returning home on Sunday. An informal dinner sounds good for Saturday night since I'm gonna be there anyway.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Sounds good to me! How do we plan to structure the classes? Do we want to break it up into small chunks where people teach, or do we want to kind of keep it a free-for-all where we talk and work on what comes up?

Now that we have a date and time, we could easily have a sign up sheet and get an idea of how many are coming.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Well since we are taking regular class time for the 10 to 12 morning session, let me see what my sensei Rick thinks for that session. I would vote for teaching in the morning then do groups to work on what we want in the afternoon. Something along the lines of teach some principals in the morning then let people do groups and explore them in detail in the afternoon sessions. My 2 cents anyway.

Thanks
Bruce

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I think since a lot of Aikiweb time is spent on discussing vs. IHTBF on aiki/IS and structure and martial issues that brief presentations, workshops flowing into each other - not meant to teach in depth rather just to give a flavor - would be one approach for afternoon - perhaps planning 20 min per so there ends up being plenty if time for unanticipated tangents and experimenting

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I am there...I will rent a car for that weekend....Can anyone suggest a good place to stay?

My main focus that weekend will be to learn from everyone by taking Ukemi and enjoying your company.

If asked I would be happy to share a little bit of my experience with Shoji Nishio's expression of Aikido.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I've stayed at the Concord Hilton a number of times and found it to be comfortable, convenient and fairly reasonably priced.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I think Concord Hilton is the best place, and is really close to the dojo

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

How far is the Dojo from the train station? Is there a Martinez or such Amtrak drop off, and a bus into Concord? I haven't rode the train in awhile, it might be nice.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Man, I love trains..wish that was an option from here! Glad we are starting at 10 as that let's me just get up early and drive (hopefully) mostly empty roads.....

For Sat night I'll be looking at the Hilton - would be very happy to share a 2 bed room w/ somebody or, if they have suites, share w/ a bunch of folks in the aikido-l seminar tradition, to reduce costs.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

There is a Amtrak station in Martinez. I called the Hilton, (925-827-2000) and while they do not do pick up that far out there, they suggest take the number 19 or # 28 buses to the Concord bart station and then call the Hilton for pickup.

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

IIRC google has me driving through Martinez en route from Mendo so if the timing works it might be quicker than waiting for a bus on a holiday weekend - Chris feel free to p.m. me

Anybody beside me heading in from points north?

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

I checked out the train schedule, the earliest train doesn't get there until 10. So I guess I'll drive-or make one of my students drive me! HA!

Re: California Aikiweb meet-up!?

Regarding train options-- the Amtrak station in Richmond is a combination Amtrak and Bart station. Bart is really cool and you can see the station's relative location on the ADV map that was posted. So you can just transfer to Bart in Richmond and you'll be in Concord in 45min. (You have to switch bart trains one time)
Bart:
bart.gov

I'll be barting in from SF. The station is 1.8 miles from the dojo.
Anyway that's one option.

Well, the odds are reasonable that I might be training within 5 miles of ADV that day... on the other hand they are also reasonable that the family and I might be camping in the Sierras. Time will tell.
