I saw this on judoforum and thought it should be posted here as well.

There have been a few news stories about a fire and damage to a Judo Dojo and Boy Scout Troop that was damage in Arroyo Grande, CA.

Former Japanese cultural center reduced to ashes - http://www.santamari...1cc4c002e0.html

And Three groups hurt by A.G. fire - http://www.sanluisob...by-ag-fire.html

Boy Scout's building burns down early Sunday morning - http://www.ksby.com/...sunday-morning/

The following is a plea from the sensei of this dojo – if you can help, I know that they will appreciate.

To Whom It May Concern:

On April 26, 2011 Five Cities Judo Dojo/Boy Scout Troop 413 Hall was broken into. The vandals attempted to set fires on the floor, caused a huge mess and wrote profanity on our blackboard. They also caused minor fire damage to one of our mats. Both the Judo club and Boy Scouts thought this was a onetime occurrence. On Sunday May 1, 2011 at around 4:30 am, a fire destroyed the Five Cities Judo dojo along with the all the materials that belonged to the Boy Scouts of America Troop 413. It has been a devastating loss to us and we do not understand why someone or some individuals would perpetrate this act of hate and violence. We hope that the individuals are caught and justice is swift as the flames of beloved dojo. Today We/I reach out to our Judo family to ask if anyone would consider us to either borrow, possibly purchase some used mats or if we can get information on resources to obtain mats any help would be appreciated. We are a small humble dojo with big hearts and great students and through this we will return with pride and dignity to the up coming May 15th tournament. Thank you for you time.

Sincerely,

Greg Rubio
