Anyone in the UK interested in attending a 5 day Tai Chi Retreat in August, leave your email address in a comment and I'll send you the details and a form. All comments will be screened.

It will be held at All Saints Pastoral Centre (near St Albans) from 23rd - 27th of August.

The cost for the 5 days is £344 - all-inclusive (full board in single rooms, all tuition and meals) but there is the opportunity to attend for only part of the long weekend. Tuition includes the Chen Man Ching Short Form (hands) - it is possible to learn enough of this during the weekend to be useful as daily practice, Sword Form (you can borrow one), Meditation, Chi Kung for health.

bendy1 I have details of the Discworld Scout Jamboree if you think the Boychild would be interested in acting as your chaperone. Is he a collector of stamps? I have a first edition Ank Morpork I could send to him - cutting me own throat at a price of £0.00

That Tai Chi retreat sounds great. I did some Tai Chi classes when I was at working at the OU (lunchtime class) and found it really relaxing and calming. But new baby, money, and the fact that we're in France kind of puts it out of the question.

Pity. Last year there was a baby who attended all the sessions. She slept through them, mind you.

Oh that looks like fun but boychild is like fine shrimp, he doesn't travel well and somerset is too far, do they always have it there?

Well considering his bear was kidnapped during the last trip south of Sale, I'm not surprised he's allergic to travelling. I can still send him the Discworld stamp if you think he'd like it.

Unfortunately, the outdoor jamboree has been held in Somerset (::sings:: #where the cider apples grow# ) since Clarecraft moved from Norfolk. There has been a 'Clarecraft even' every summer since they first started making Discworld things out of clay. The Bernard the Cunning Artificer moved to Somerset and retired, Clarecraft ceased trading, and the 'event' metamorphosed into a summer gathering. I think this is the first Scouty one.
