Hi guys! We need numbers for the Sports Union ball coming up in January! For all those who are new the SU ball is a massive event that's hosted each year where all clubs get together, eat too much, drink too much and dance for way too long. It's always a fun event but we need to confirm numbers early!
We are planning on hosting a TKD pot-luck before the event as we do each year (so most members buy after-dinner tickets only) but if there is interest in the 3-course meal do let us know!

Please vote in the poll before next wednesday (10th October) as we will need to submit numbers by then! (note that if you vote in the poll that's you confirmed for a place)

Details:
The Edinburgh University Sports Union Ball will be held at the EICC on Thursday 24th January 2019
Tickets for dinner and awards ceremony are Β£65.00 per person
After Dinner tickets are Β£25 per person
Info about the pot-luck will be confirmed at a later date.

Thank you to Master Aftab Hussain of British Military Taekwondo for visiting us this week!

This event marked the pinacle of British Millitary Taekwondo's sponsorship of EUTKD. Master Hussain hosted a very insightful seminar last night which was attended by both regular members and new faces. We all took away some gems of knowledge which we look forward to applying to our future trainings.

We hope you enjoyed your stay with us in Edinburgh, Master Hussain, and look forward to working with you on future events πŸ˜€
