Reading Time: 1

Just an update to let you know that the 2017 USA KDJSS is still planned for the La Toretta Lake Resort in Montgomery, TX Nov 10-17.

Flood waters have receded and remediation of damaged areas is underway, so if you are planning to attend the 2017 Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa as a Vistor or Moment With Masters we need to hear from you by Monday.

Thank you to all who have previously indicated your plans to attend.

We do still have a few details pending in order to finalize the contract and are asking you to help us quantify how many rooms and meals we should commit to in the contract by responding as requested below. 

If the Federation includes you in the qty of lodging and meals specified in the contract and you do not show up, the Federation must still pay, so you can help us by confirming your plans by responding to this request for information. 

WE NEED YOUR RESPONSE BEFORE MONDAY SEPT 18.  

(If you are reading this, there are probably fellow Dans and Ko Dan Ja who will not see this message for various reasons, so please reach out among your fellow Dans and Ko Dan Ja to help assure everyone knows their response is needed by Monday.)

 Your response will help us commit to the correct qty of lodging and meals in the contract.

 We look forward to your reply.

 Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Dear Federation Members,

I hope this message finds you and your family in good health and spirits.

We have all been watching with horror the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in Houston, Texas and surrounding areas has created unimaginable hardship.

So far all reports are that our Soo Bahk Do family members in the area are safe. 

As most of you know we have been on course to hold 2017 Moment with the Masters and the 2017 Ko Dan Ja Shim Sa at La Torretta Resort in November.

The complex is about 45 minutes outside Houston and has experienced some serious flooding. 

We are hopeful that La Torretta will still be able to host our event in November, but due to uncertain circumstances we are also exploring alternative locations.

First, I would like to reassure everyone that there will be a 2017 MWM/KDJSS this fall; however, there is a possibility that we could be forced to relocate outside the Houston area or even Region 6.

I would encourage those planning to attend to postpone making airline reservations for a short while until we have a more complete assessment of the situation.

I will get back to you as more information becomes available.

Sincerely,
Ron Strong,
Chairman Board of Directors
Region 5

Pumpkin For Trick Or Treat Held By Girl In Vampire Costume

Halloween is despised by some and enjoyed by others, but regardless of your perspective about Halloween I am sure you agree that safety is important.

Safety is especially important on Halloween when young kids may be roaming the streets in the dark and when widespread mischief and mayhem may be the norm, so being alert and attentive to personal safety is a high priority.

Adults and tots can both benefit from attending a fun and educational Trick or Treater Safety School offered as a community service program by participating Moo Duk Kwan® Certified schools nationwide.  Look for local ads or flyers about programs near you.

So have fun this Halloween whether you avoid it or relish it, just be safe and remember that you can safely Trick or Treat us by Text message the whole month of October!
