Quick January Overview
9th Jan : Returned to Japan from a two week holiday in Thailand and Cambodia.
Spent the rest of the week training and preparing for...
13th Jan - 15th Jan : All-Japan Champion of Champions Tournament 2006, Saitama Stadium.
Although we played really well, and again had fantastic support, we lost the final. To Saitama. We plan to have our revenge in Tochigi in April. Top weekend, photos on their way!
20th Jan : Joint Birthday Celebration with Erik.
He has his birthday on teh 20th, mine is on the 21st, so we throw a big party together. lots of friends, beer and pressies. Top Night, photos on their way!
23rd Jan - 24th Jan : ALT Mid-year Seminar
Not strictly recreation, but an important event on teh JET calender. Of course, with such a high concentration of ALTs in one place, one wisper of 'party' leads to a massive gathering at Shame (all monies to the PNG play charity). Watch out for Lopaka's pants in the coming photos.
So those are the major events over teh last month. The other things taking up my time this month have been work and snowboarding. I'm trying to go as many times as I can before I head back to England next month. So far I've been five times this month and loved every minute (even the time I hit a tree). I want to go night boarding this week, but since no snow has fallen since Saturday, the slopes are likely to be covered in nasty ice.
Come on Micheal Fish, gimme some snow!!!
