1st Gurumu Annual Dinner & Dance And Award Ceremony

Dear Gurumu Members / Parents,

As one of the leading clubs in the country we have a long track record of excellence both in competition and the administration of our sport. We have dominated the club level championships in UK for many years and most recently Gurumu’s success at the 2008 National Taekwondo Championship where we lifted the 1st place team award was the icing on the cake.

Over the years Gurumu has developed slowly but very strongly in both traditional and competitive taekwondo. Gurumu has produced many champions at regional, national and international level but has also natured many talented individuals outside of this sport. May be they might not have been the best fighter but many Gurumu members have used taekwondo to develop themselves are respectable individuals in our society and in their professional careers and they have made a mark for themselves. It goes to show the greatness of our club and its members, we certainly have something special in Gurumu.

I have been requested by many members of the club (students, parents and well wishers) to organise an annual event where we gather as one family and celebrate the growth of the club, the achievements that our members have worked hard for and finally to relax and have some fun without kicking a pad or a person. Therefore we have decided to have an annual event at the beginning of the year to celebrate everyone’s success. Therefore we are Proud to Present the

1st Gurumu Annual Dinner & Dance and Award Ceremony

Gurumu are seeking volunteers to assist with photography on the day of the event. If any friends or family are interested, please put forward your interest by using the attached sheet.

Gurumu Talent Showcase
Gurumu Taekwondo is a talented club. Our achievements are not only those medals and trophies we win at competitions, but also those things that our members achieve outside of Taekwondo. Gurumu has always encouraged excellence and at our first annual event we would like to present the opportunity for our members to share with us all, their non-Taekwondo talents.

A song, a dance, playing a musical instrument, reading a poem, telling a joke or saying your twelve times tables backwards; whatever your talent, we want to hear about it.

This will be an opportunity for us all to share and be proud of the achievements and talents of Team Gurumu.

As you can appreciate, the time constraints on the day will be such that there can only be limited performances. Therefore, to avoid disappointment, please complete the attached form with details of your talent and return as soon as possible.

If anyone is interested in sponsoring the event or knows anyone that would like to, in the form of an advert in the Gurumu Information Booklet, which will be distributed at the event, please speak to Miss Jayanthi Renganathan on 07944 502 881 for further details.

We hope that you have found the above informative, and we look forward to seeing you at Gurumu’s 1st Annual Dinner & Dance and Award Ceremony.

Kind Regards,

Gurumu Events Management Team
