Great News from Taekwondo Victoria

Thursday, June 13th, 2013
The Koryo Taekwondo Centre would like to congratulate TVI on the new discount structure and wish Melissa Kenihan and Grant Mason all the very best with their new Executive positions.
1. Melissa Kenihan the Technical Director of TVI has accepted the position of National Technical Manager (NTM) with TA. After much consideration & with the best wishes of the TVI EC Melissa is moving to the National Poomsae scene, where she can help maintain & improve the level of Poomsae around Australia for all members.
2. At the TVI EC meeting on 12-6-13 Grant Mason was appointed an EC of TVI. Grant will be looking after the Technical Committee on behalf of TVI. Grant has been a member of this committee for some time & has been attending our EC meetings with Melissa for several months, so he is well placed to step in & look after this area for TVI.
3. Family Discount.
Following a request for one of our Head Instructors re families of 3 or more competing in TVI events, that this was becoming an expensive day out, the EC discussed this matter & has made the following decision.
A Family (Mum, Dad &/or kids) would receive a family discount. The first 2 members pay the advertised entry fee’s the 3rd, 4th, 5th etc members will pay 50% of the first/main event plus the advertise fee for all additional events. This will give some re leaf for large family groups that wish to compete together at our events. Our online entry system is not able to handle a “Family Discount”, so they will need to download a Claim Form from the TVI website – list all the family members that entered the event, claim the refund amount due an email it to our Treasurer, Tony Susac who will issue the refund, by cheque or direct debit into your account if the info is supplied.
4. With the assistance to 2 of our EC members several training camps have/will be held in Victoria with leading International & Olympic Coaches attending & offering the benefit of their knowledge & experience. Most of these camps are fee to TVI members, so that we (TVI) can give back something to our clubs & members.
5. Coaching Seminars, Referee Seminars etc are being look at so that regular events can be conducted, for members to update & improve their knowledge,
6. We would welcome new members to assist TVI as event managers or assistants. There is always a shortage of Referee’s & Poomsae judges, so this could be an area that you could join in & help out at events.
