Hi Bill & Angela,

Our WTCQD celebrations here in East Gippsland on the Gippsland Lakes (Victoria, Australia) were a great success.

We had 47 in attendance which is a new record for us. Not a huge number by big city standards but an outstanding number for us out in the country.

Our event was held in Bairnsdale, which is the biggest town in the area and people came from surrounding townships such as Metung, Lakes Entrance, Nicholson and Raymond Island. We used the Defined FX Centre which is located in the old butter factory right beside the Mitchell River.

Many participants were my own students, but we also welcomed people from other groups, as well as many people who had never tried Tai Chi and saw the event as a chance to find out what it's all about - (thanks to media coverage in the local newspapers).

All age groups were represented which was great to see. We had beautiful warm, autumn weather on the day (only t-shirts required) but that night and the next day we had glorious RAIN!! As we have serious water shortages here in Victoria at the moment any rain is a cause of celebration.

I'm not sure if our WTCQD group energy had anything to do with the rain, but I'm claiming it anyway!! I can't send through any photos as I don't have a digital camera, but I look forward to checking out the website to see other events around the world.

Thank you for all your hard work to make WTCQD happen every year - it is very much appreciated. We'll do it again next year - bigger and better - excellent fun.

Kind regards

Jill Thio
