c) 2014 Paris Taikai
I would like to share this hotel info. with those who are planning to attend the 2014 KYF Paris Taikai. (I obtained this info. personally.)
d) New Test Fee: The new test fee will be applied from the fiscal year of 2014, which starts from APRIL 1ST OF 2014. Those who take tests in Japan by the end of the 31st of March, 2014 should pay the current test fees.
e) The test application of the shinsa at the 2014 Asia Oceanic Kyudo Seminar has been closed. Good luck with your training to those who try the exam!
As you were already informed the AKR has paid their expenses for their convenience. Andrew will calculate the individual remittance fee then send an invoice to those who owe to the AKR. You are requested to remind them to pay the amount that they owe promptly once it is notified by the AKR treasurer.
f) <deleted>. I will instruct another seminar in San Paolo, Brazil, in April.
2) 2015 / 2016 IKYF Seminars with the AKR
