      Hey Mick, Thanks for reply. I cannot give a 100% commitment for those dates right now but I will definitely try my best ( unless something comes up at work). Do you have a list of things I need to bring ? And also any info available about the fees for this course? I tried to check on the http://www.kafadventu...­ but was not able to find any details

      email me at [masked] and I can send you a gear sheet. You do not need any gear to participate. Our smith rock weekend at the end of September is starting to look promising!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
