EWR Memorial Championships, Detroit USA. 20th May 2017

The Korean Taekwondo Association of America will be holding their annual Master Eric Rose Memorial Championships in Detroit, USA on Saturday 20th May.  Master Eric Rose was a personal friend of the Bluewave Instructors and Club, who drowned attempting to rescue other people a few year ago, and this championship is a great way to remember him and the sacrifice he made.  The championships will include both Poomsae and Sparring.

We would like to take a small team of competitors from Bluewave next year and wanted to get started on planning as soon as possible.  The budget cost for the trip will be £1,000 to include flights, car hire, hotel and tournament entry fees but not meals and drinks. This trip will be open to all grades and over 12 years old.  Under 16s will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.  As well as the championships we would include a few extra days for sightseeing and shopping in the trip.  A deposit of £650 to cover flights costs will be required to secure a place.  Deposits will needed to be paid the 1st December.

If you are interested please talk to Gerry as soon as possible.
