  We had several relatives and friends of the students in attendance.  After coming and seeing what the karate promotions were like, one observer decided to start coming to our classes.  A special thanks to the blackbelts; Dave Shaneman, Ed Boyd, Gary Mazzotti, and Bill Handren, for helping us have a successful promotion.  Kim Barrington would like to thank all the friends and relatives for supporting the students.
