We are now into February and, having requested that all nominations be in by the end of January, I am pleased to announce that, having considered all applications, we have now settled on the nominee who will receive for the Ronnie Robinson Bursary for 2018.
If you are in the UK, while I appreciate that PayPal is convenient, they charge us a considerable amount for each transaction. As cheques and bank transfers within the UK are not subject to any charge please continue to use this method of payment in order to help our efforts to avoid having to increase future prices.
If you are not in the UK then it is now possible to make your payment via PayPal (which will hopefully be simpler and cheaper for you) to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure you remember to note who the payment is from! (Banking information for making direct transfers is available on request if you would prefer).
Whether paying by PayPal or bank transfer please also submit a booking form with your full details.
Here is a short reminder from our friend Roberto for those of you who attended his workshop last July.
We have booked the original caterers who we were unable to get this year for the buffet (we are no longer using the term BBQ!) on Tuesday 10th July 2018.
Donations for Ronnie’s books and DVDs at this year’s Tai Chi Caledonia totalled £436.13.
Added to last year’s donations of £1087.93, this gives us a total of £1524.06 which will be made up to £2000 by Tai Chi Caledonia to go towards the memorial for Ronnie in the university’s Garden of Imagination. Hopefully this will be in place before next year’s event.
Thank you to everyone who contributed.
I have posted this information on the Tai Chi Caledonia facebook page.
It was noted last year that a few people had come some distance and from the same general area. If you are planning to drive up to Stirling next month and have room in your car for others then please post the details as a comment to this Tai Chi Caledonia Facebook page post.
Similarly if you would like a lift to Stirling and are willing to share petrol costs then put your details there too.
You can then PM each other and sort things out, just don’t drag me into it! 😲
Just a heads up that the chip shop and Italian restaurant at the foot of the hill will be closed during Tai Chi Caledonia and The William Wallace pub no longer serves food in the evening. The Co-op mini market stocks ready meals if you wish to cook for yourself in your chalet. There is a microwave in each kitchen.
There are a number of eating places in Bridge of Allan about 1.5km walk and there are some carry-out eateries there too.
