#TeamBudokan National Cadet Team members Will and Clarissa along with National Cadet Team Coach Kerrye have settled in Poland and are preparing for the first of their two European Cups, this one to be held in Bielsko-Biala Poland on Saturday 5.00pm our time. Once the Draw is performed in the early hours of Saturday morning, we will know their opponents and the match order. I’ll post information and links on the Budokan Facebook pages when I know. Only hours from weigh-in with both our guys on weight, Clarissa has 22 in her division and Will has 51.Wishing them both and all the Cadet National Team members a great competition and camp both in Poland and the following week in Portugal, and of course to Kerrye and Ivica. The second photo below is of the 6 Judo NSW athletes and 2 coaches on this tour of 15 athletes.

BE THE FIRST TO WEAR OUR BRAND NEW RANGE OF BUDOKAN MERCHANDISE – URGENT EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST REQUIRED -

We have designed a new range of wonderful Budokan merchandise, bright and colourful, reflecting the energy and vibrancy of the club and our members. It would be great if we could get this gear for our Budokan supporters to the Nationals but to do this our first order to the supplier must be made after Judo this Thursday 19th May. Don’t worry, there will be the possibility of future orders but it is likely that the first order we make is the largest, and this will affect the sale price to you, as explained below. Some points to note:

  • Jo Edwards is coordinating this project and will be at the club for Juniors and Seniors tomorrow (Tuesday 17th May) and Thursday and will be taking expressions of interest from you for this merchandise at those times
  • If you can’t get to training on either of these days, you can email your order Jo at docjoedwards@hotmail.com
  • Jo will bring sample sizes, as well as a size chart of the kid’s smaller sizes, and detailed pricing information
  • You do NOT have to pay up-front
  • Cost price to you will be the club’s cost price from the supplier. That’s right, the club will NOT make any profit on this merchandise
  • There are “order price breaks” for each item of merchandise from the supplier. This means that the larger the order for a particular item, the cheaper the cost price to us and therefore to you. To allow for this, Jo will have a “price range” for each item. You won’t pay more than the highest price in the range, and where our order size is larger, you will pay less
  • There are male and female versions of some merchandise. Only the shape differs 
  • Any questions, please ask Jo
