    Talking Seattle Cherry Blossom Festival

    Hi folks,

    The Seattle Cherry Blossom Festival is this weekend!

    Since the is not user-friendly, can someone point to a schedule of ma demos on the web?

    Nope, David you are not search engine impaired.

    For some obscure reason, the Cherry Blossom organizers don't seem to think people want to know the schedule. So,unless you call, you don't get a schdule. Then when you do call, it rings and no one picks up, or the person who answers gives you the wrong information, or if you call past 5pm, you get an answering machine.

    This goes back for years, I've yet to get the schedule without making several attempts or getting the wrong info from them dating back to when I was in my mis-spent youth still. I've given up trying to get information from them.

    The only thing I know for sure is the Taiko drummers are at 2 on Sunday by going to both Seattle Taiko and Tsunami Taiko websites.

    They finally printed a schedule ahead of time this year in the North American Post / Northwest Nikkei / Hokubei Hochi Shimbun dated April 12, 2003 (English Edition Vol. 20, No. 15). The price is $0.75 and might be available at Uwajimaya.

    The chart they published is kind of hard to read. I make no personal guarantees.

    All the demonstrations will be in the Center House.

    I will be there snooping around on Sunday. Is anybody else going to be there? Perhaps we can hook up.
