First Con!

Hey everybody, Andrew and I (among a couple of the other members) made it out to Shuto Con in Lansing and gave a couple of presentations on karuta there! For everybody that decided to come in and find out what karuta was about or was able to play a game of karuta, thank you very much! It was because of you that the presentations were a success! If anybody that saw us there has any interest in joining the club, please feel free to contact me at either or and I'll let you know when and where you can meet up with us. Again, thank you all for your support, and have fun playing karuta!

As a note, there was a girl cosplaying as Chihaya at the second demonstration, and she was able to win her matches! Just goes to show how unbeatable Chihaya is!

Karuta in Washington DC Area!

I just finished playing karuta for two days in the Washington DC area with Mutsumi Stone-san, the founder of the karuta club in that area. It was an absolute blast, and hopefully we will be able to set something similar up again for more members from the KCL to come out!

Monday's Meeting

For everyone that could make it, thanks for coming out Monday! We've now learned the first 70 poems, and are only a few weeks away from knowing all 100! Look forward to seeing everybody Thursday!

The most recent meeting proved not to be too productive, as everybody (myself included) was tired. However, we did practice through poems 51-60, and that's all we really needed to do.

As a side note, we have decided to start our own little mini KCL Anime Club. So far we've set the time as every Monday following club activities, so from around 8pm-9pm. We watched the first episode of three shows: 男子高校生の日常 (Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou), アクセルワールド (Accel World), and Free!, and will watch one episode from each of those series every week.

Tournament Finished!

Thanks to everybody that came out for the tournament! Andrew ended up winning the whole thing, with Jodie in second and Christen in third. Can't wait for next month's tournament! As a note, the next meeting is Wednesday, July the 3rd, from 1:00pm-3:30pm becuse of the holidays. I'll see everybody then!
