Greetings from KSMA-land. This year was somewhat quiet with the exception of the wickedly fun Summer Jam. The next one should be a blast and once we know when and where and what not, we will let you know. Health issues seem to be the name of the game of late. We anxiously await news from Bobbe and what the recovery will be like. I have colon cancer and the chemotherapy limits my training to essentially non-contact stuff as bruises won't go away quickly now. Because of the cancer, the KSMA Des Moines school is going to close when the lease is up. Hats off to Jake for stepping up to cover a couple of classes per week to keep it alive before we go back underground. Surprisingly, we have had some new people show up. Guess I should have said I was closing earlier. My prognosis is fairly good in the sense that I will be around for a while (relative term), but it is stage 4 and fairly significant. I am approaching every day on its own. Be safe and make the most of the holiday hoopla.
