We are going to try something new with the ASDF. This is something that an online veteran’s network I am a member of does, and it works pretty well. The group is Veterans Referring Veterans. And what they do is hold weekly virtual Happy Hours!
I thought we could try them monthly, and begin with the 3rd Sunday of every month from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM (EST).
In the veteran’s group, we would often have a member (or guest) speaker, then some social chat afterward. Sometimes, when there was no speaker, we use the time to get to know each other better.
Any member would be welcome to present, and we could even have an occasional guest speaker from outside our group.The topic should relate to traditional martial arts in some way, shape, or form. And we could certainly also use the time to all get better aquainted.
This should grow into a good thing, because we have members in several states, and the ASDF is about sharing experiences in traditional martial arts. Travel is not always easy. We all typically make as many clinics and seminars we can each year, but these Happy Hours will give us another venue to meet and grow.
So pull up a chair, grab your favorite beverage, and join in each month. It will be fun.
Invitation links will be sent to all members who subscribe to our Announcements page on the ASDF website, https://myas-df.com/announcements/, and posted in our private ASDF Facebook group. So please make sure you subscribe to one or the other!
Hope to see you for our first one on December 18th at 7:00 PM (EST)!
