Cally Finances

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 […]

TEACHER CHANGE

Unfortunately Sam Masich is unable to join us this year. However, we have been fortunate to obtain the services of Yanira Jigetsu Rodriguez who will take his place. Yanira knows the material Sam was going to present and so we are in the fortunate position of being able to offer the same programme as originally […]

The current situation in Scotland allows indoor as well as outdoor contact sports. As a result, the university has now confirmed that, as things currently stand (and we are all hopeful that any future changes will be to further loosen or even remove restrictions), they are happy for us to go ahead with our event […]

Update on latest situation for 2022

This week saw an easing of restrictions in Scotland to the extent that, if things do not deteriorate again (a big if, perhaps), it looks as if we might be able to have a live event in July. But hopefully more on that in a few days time. Meanwhile, Saza Krauter’s circumstances have changed and […]
