Additionally here’s some important things coming soon!

1.DAWG DAZE!
It’s time to recruit! Dawg daze is our biggest recruiting event, but it doesn’t man itself. If you want more people to hit for the following year, please sign-up for a time slot. We really need any volunteers at all. We’ll have bogu and shinai samples, bottle openers to hand out, and all you really need to do is hand out flyers, answer people’s questions, and get people interested in kendo! It’ll be really simple and easy. If you can help, please sign-up here:
Spreadsheet

If you sign-up, please do not flake on short notice. Many years we have people write their name in a time-slot but then erase it the day of, leaving us understaffed.
And as always, we will follow our tradition where for every three time-slots you complete, the club will buy you a bubble tea of your choice.

2. OFFICER ELECTIONS
If you would like to run for any position in office, we will be holding elections on the second Wednesday of practice (Oct 5th). If you cannot make this practice but would still like to run for a position, please let us know in advance.
If you have any questions at all, please contact us.
See you guys soon!
