Hi Bill,
I'd like thank my first Tai Chi instructor, Tat Lui for introducing me to the wonders of both Tai Chi, AND World Tai Chi & Qigong Day!  While Tat has since moved to another city, my new teacher, Sifu Peggy McRitchie, has also embraced WTCQD and our school will be participating annually from now on.   Thanks for your excellent work organizing and promoting WTCQD!
Regards,
