This is the Winery. Jason thought of doing in the vineyard, which is lovely, but there are a lot of rattlesnakes at this time of the year, and since we will have kids playing around, we decided not to, to be on the safe side 🙂
In the past it was a SCKO event, so SCKO was subsidizing a portion of this event, but since most of the participants were from BUTOKUDEN, this year we will make it a BUTOKUDEN event. But of course, everyone is welcome to join.
Dojo Rental: It will depend on the number of participants, and we will split among the adult Kenshis.
Adult Kenshi: $10 – 20 (we will split the cost, so more people, it will be cheaper!)
18 and under: $0
Wine & BBQ:
18 and Under: $5
Looking forward to a big participation!
