Thanks again to GM Bobby for visiting Seattle and conducting another outstanding seminar. Kudos to the entire Balintawak Seattle family for contributing to the success of the event. GM Bobby was impressed with the rapid growth we have had since he was last here in 2011, and the quality of our members. A special note of thanks to Guro Patrick Schmitt who flew in from Cleveland to assist GM Bobby and support the event. Some of the pictures have been posted on the website, more will be posted on Facebook as additional pics come in (there were lots of pictures taken, please share).
