A reminder that name drawings for Secret Santa are occurring at this Sunday practice. You must come if you are participating in Secret Santa. (Though if you have really terrible scheduling conflicts or the flu, please contact Abigail.) A second round of group naginata uniform photos will be also taking place after practice.
The Facebook event page for this year’s UTNC Secret Santa is up. Please check it out.
This is a reminder that tomorrow on Wednesday, November 9 from 8 pm to 10 pm, we have our first maintenance session of the school year in the committee room of Hart House second floor. Maintenance is an essential part of Naginata, and thus you should come if you have time. It’s fine to drop in part way through if you have other commitments overlapping into that time.
See you there,
This Saturday, October 29 at 1 PM, we will be having our yearly scavenger hunt. This is an opportunity to see Toronto landmarks beyond UofT and meet high ranking naginata players. TTC fairs will be paid for by the club, and we will meet in the Hart House reading room. See you all there!

October 15-16 is the CNF National Championship and Seminar. People of all Naginata skill levels are welcome to attend. You’ll get to practice with people from other dojos in Canada, and watch your Senpai compete in the national championship. We car pool to the seminar on Friday, get a hotel together, and return late Sunday night. Registration is due by October 9, so please let me know if you’re interested in attending as soon as possible!
The club will subsidize a small part of the seminar fee.
