On Sunday 31 August, Chelmsford Shotokan Karate Club held their Annual Picnic for Family and Friends at Hylands Park. This event was rearranged from its original date back in July when severe thunderstorms had caused major problems including removing the roof off a house in Chelmer Village!
The weather was very kind this time and a large group gathered ready to enjoy the afternoon. Sensei Richard announced that the ‘Hyland Games’ were officially open and the more active members of the party joined in a game of Softball while others chose to relax and enjoy the sun. There then was a much needed refreshment break followed by an interesting series of ‘no rules’ relay races.
The party continued with some live music, a lot of laughter and a side show water gun fight with some of those younger present making sure the adults did not miss out on the fun!
As usual everyone had a great time. Below are some of the pictures from the Picnic and games - A special thank you to Steve Dowling for his photographs.
