This year is the twenty-seventh annual Guelph Spring Seminar and the 30th anniversary of the Sei Do Kai itself so we'd
to see all our old friends again. At the moment plans for the seminar
are in flux but I will update this page as soon as I can.
When you look at the registration form you'll find that we've kept the rates low for students (those in school) and a bit higher for those of us who are in the workforce. Please note we've also kept a steep penalty for those who pay "at the door" in an attempt to get you folks to pre-register and reduce my ulcer production. Don't forget to make time for all our extracurricular activities, especially the Saturday night party, the auction is always a hoot even if you aren't bidding. You are all our guests for this event. As usual, we do hope you will spend at least the amount of your meal during the auction.
This year we'd like to continue one of our most popular pricing
so get those beginners out, we're offering the 6 FOR 5 DEAL again!
Get 5 pre-registrations (2/3 day registrations only please, single sessions and one day registrations do not count)
together from your club and bring sensei for
free! Email now for details!
