Dear Masters, Instructors, Blackbelts and Students,

We are delighted Mrs Solovey has agreed to visit us here in Aberdeen, Scotland and we hope that she enjoys here visit very much.  She, along with her assistant Miss Viktoria Sokolovska, will conduct three sessions.

As we have a very large competitive junior contingency, here in Aberdeen , we will conduct a session of all grades up to 13 yrs.  Teens and adults kup grades up to 3rd kup will also have their own session. The final one will be for red and blackbelts.

Mrs Solovey is well known to our students and they are all looking forward to this great opportunity.

All coaches, students & parents are to park in the main campus car park, which is located on the left side of Gowans Terrace immediately before the approach road to the campus.  Parking is not permitted on the private road through the car park that leads to Muirton Cottages. The car park can be busy and we would ask you to encourage car sharing. The only parking permitted out with the main car park is in the disabled parking bays on the road round the side of the campus building, and any cars parking here must display a current disabled badge.  
Finally can I ask that all Instructors send a brief email (not Facebook message) a few days in advance listing who will be attending from your school to allow myself time to increase/decrease the area booked.  All students attending these training dates must inform their instructor that they wish to attend.
