Why don't you and the CKF offer to pay for Clyde's attendance to your event?
What better way is there to "prove your point" and position?
So often with many the old line is: "come on out and see"... Unfortunately "coming on out" is very expensive these days and many are not willing or able to make that commitment. It seems everywhere I travel it is around $1000. for airfare, hotel and meals.
If your points are really that important to make, put your "event" (money) where your mouth is... Even if the "Oh wow" thing did not happen how could the experience be fully negative, or communicated as such? I know that you cannot pay everyone's way, but if there is an individual that you see merits it then why not? You can even write it off!
I think the CKF could benefit by doing this type of thing every so often. Kenpo "community outreach", as it were. A little positive press (from others then yourselves) would probably go a long way.
Just my two cents.
Thank you, Milt G.
