First of all a big thank you to all who came along to make this year’s event one of the best yet, if the feedback is anything to go by.
We have never considered Tai Chi Caledonia to be a money-making venture. However it has always been self-funding with enough being left over at the end of each event to cover the deposits required to set up the next one. Over the years we have identified cost savings to allow us to reduce the need to increase the price of attendance. Up to now this had been successful in that since 2012, in these ten years we only had to increase the fee for attending for a full week by £25.
However, as we are all experiencing, recent events have resulted in large increases in every area to the extent that this year’s Cally has not covered all its costs. Clearly this cannot be sustained so this is just a heads up that there will need to be significant increases in next year’s fees.
As well as the high standard of teaching, the other activities, organised and impromptu, that were available in the evenings proved a hit with most, and all contributed to a memorable week. So we would prefer to continue with these rather than bin them to cut costs. In any case, it is by no means sure that doing so would make the savings we would require and we do wish to continue to provide the “Cally bubble” and all that it is known for.
We don’t know yet what the new prices will be, but we will let you know as soon as we have worked things out.
