2005 SUPER SUMMER SEMINARS - 23rd YEAR

OUR 2005 SPECIAL GUEST INSTRUCTOR, MIKE BERNARDO, A BLACK BELT MAGAZINE HALL OF FAME RECIPIENT, WAS A HIT WITH THE PARTICIPANTS.

 As always, the weekend had great weather and we have had nothing but great reviews from participants.  The DJ had the Pub rocking until 2 a.m. on Sat. and from what we have heard the party continued in at least one dorm until the wee hours of the morning.  Something about "Russell Olympics."
