A big thank you goes to all the people who helped with the running of the taikais. 

No matter how small that help was - it all added up to a successful day. 

There are far too many people to mention and I know if I tried I'll forget 3 or 4 people.

The help provided wasn't only from MBK members. 

Several members from other clubs also helped with various tasks....and of course with the clean up at the end. 

A big thank you goes to them also.

Thank you also goes to everyone who competed, helped with the demos and who were just there to watch and cheer on.

It was a great team effort by everyone.


Cheers and take care.
