[caption id="attachment_4321" align="alignleft" width="300"] Kids lining up to fill up their water guns![/caption] The Dojo of Karate will be hosting their annual, Summer Potluck at our usual location -- Big Dry Creek Park on Sunday June 23rd from 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM. The Big Dry Creek Park is literally across the street from Safeway. If you can see and smell the dog park, then you'll know where it's located. Just go to the back of the park where the Picnic Shelters are located. Twice a year, The Dojo of Karate hosts two events that gets our community of students, parents, siblings, and family members together to hangout, enjoy some food, and just chat or catch up. We usually do a Winter event, with this past one hosted at the Noah's Event Center in Westminster. Our Annual Christmas Party is the time when The Dojo of Karate recognizes students for their dedication, hard work, and perseverance in Karate by giving out awards for various categories, such as Best Beginners Student, Best Focus, or Best Leadership Team Member. While in the Summer, The Dojo of Karate host a Summer Potluck, usually after school is out, where students and members all bring a dish to share with everyone else, and Sensei Lozano provides Hot Dogs (Hebrew Nationals at that!), condiments, plates, napkins, and utensils to everyone that joins. We also tell students to bring a water gun because the playground becomes a water gun shooting zone where kids just go crazy. And, sometimes you're able to shoot Sensei Lozano when he's not noticing. The only thing we ask is that you DO NOT bring water balloons, as your and / or your child will be spending time picking up the balloons all over the park. If any of you are softball players, there is a baseball diamond where we can put together a team parents and/or students to play a game of softball, but please make sure you bring bats, balls, gloves, and anything else that makes you think you'll be awesome at softball. There will be a signup sheet at the front desk next week where you and your family can tell us what you plan to bring and how many of you will be attending. This helps Sensei Lozano know how many hot dogs need to be provided for the group. We look forward to hosting your family this year, at our annual Summer Potluck!
