October 24 to 25 2015 was a weekend I have been looking forward to for months! This was the day Tuhon Loki from Vancouver, Canada will host a Pekiti Tirsia Kali seminar lead by our own Grand Tuhon Supremo Leo Gaje. If you do your research on GT Leo Gaje, you’ll know why I’m excited.
The night before I left I received a text from Guro Herald. He said “Remember to buy a cowboy hat, ok?” What would he need a cowboy hat for? Herald works for a telecom company and the last time I spoke to him, he doesn’t even ride horses!
He then told me Grand Tuhon likes hats and he wants a cowboy hat. Now this makes more sense. Good thing I’m in Alberta and Western wear is readily available and I went to the store right after work. I got lucky because I got off work early and the store was still open. Since this was pretty important to me and Herald. I made sure I did not forget GT’s hat.
The drive from Lethbridge, AB to Vancouver, BC was not going to be easy. However it’s not impossible. So my wife, our two-year old boy, and my parents packed up and drove. We made it and it was a great seminar! More to come about the seminar.
