    I am sending this email regarding the booklet advertising/donations separately because we will be collecting the advertising/donation forms and payments separately from the tournament apps/payments. Please refer to the tournament app from Hosokawa-sensei's email for where to send the apps/payments for the tournament.

    Please see the attached Program Booklet Advertising/Donation Form. This form should be emailed back to me along with any advertisement artwork by 7/24/22. Also, make checks payable to Southern California Kendo Federation and mail to the Treasurer by 7/24/22 (see details in the ad form).
