Dear Nabe project team members!

Thank you very much for your support for this event. I appreciate that you agreed to take the roles as I assigned. I hope I was successful in sharing with you “fun” parts in running an event. Because of my back problem, I was not able to move as the way I wanted. Your support was tremendous. You all are awesome, three cheers for us! The teamwork we showed the other day was much better functional than that of a Rugby team I used to join. For future events requiring volunteers, I am tempted to do this: assigning roles by drawing a picture with circles and arrows on a board.

Anyway, if you have anything you have to say, suggestions, and complaints or anything, please let me know on this discussion board, or personally via email, at Thursday meetup, or Skype.

Sincerely,

Kenji
