Hello Great Bay Tai Chi Community,
It’s been a busy start to the Fall season at Great Bay Tai Chi. We hope you are enjoying our various offerings.
Here is your Tai Chi news for today:
If you haven’t already heard – one week ago Betsy, Stacie, and Pam competed in the Chinese Martial Arts Autumn Invitational. They did us all proud and brought home 1 Bronze and 5 Gold Medals! Their performances were outstanding and it was great to see the Great Bay Tai Chi cheering section come out in support! All three competitors have made sure to express their gratitude to our whole community for being part of their training and preparation.
