Woof All: Original Productions (Monster House, Monster Garage and others) will be filming our "DB Fall Gathering of the Pack" on Nov. 20th with an eye to it being the opening show for a reality TV show for Spike TV. The idea for the show is to follow several fighters as they get ready for our "DB Summer Gathering of the Pack" The Adventure continues, Crafty Dog --------------------------------------------------- A Howl of Greeting: The rhythm of the seasons is with us and its time for the "Winter Dog Brothers Gathering of the Pack". On behalf of the Council of Elders of the Dog Brothers, Dog Brothers Inc. Martial Arts hereby cordially invites you to its "Dog Brothers Winter Gathering of the Pack" at 11:00 AM on Sunday, November 20, 2005 at the RAW Gym in El Segundo to conclude when the fighters are done. Many of you may remember our Gatherings held in the park in Hermosa Beach, which, although they were hosted at considerable expense, were always free to you our friends, our guests. However with a private facility involved we now need to charge admission of $10. We ask that you still consider yourselves to be our friends and our guests. In this context we ask that you respect our wishes in the matter of Video. It is very simple: NO VIDEO CAMERAS, NO DUAL PURPOSE CAMERAS (i.e. with both still photo and video capabilities). THIS MATTER IS OF IMPORTANCE TO US! And, if you see someone videoing, please don't let them abuse our hospitality-please let us know. As always, you may take photographs for personal, non-commercial use PROVIDED you give us a complete set of the ones you take. Thanks to the increasing numbers of you who actually remember and bother to do this! It is very much appreciated! The Magic Words: The MAGIC WORDS: "No judges, no referees, no trophies. One rule only: Be friends at the end of the day. This means our goal is that no one spends the night in the hospital. Our goal is that everyone leaves with the IQ with which they came. No suing no one for no reason for nothing no how no way! Real Contact Stickfighting is Dangerous and only you are responsible for you. Protect yourself at all times. All copyright belongs to Dog Brothers Inc. CA law applies." This matter of accepting the risk applies to those of you in the crowd too. For example, sticks, and fights for that matter, may go flying into the crowd. Parents should consider things like this in deciding whether a child is old enough to bring along and/or deciding on from where to observe the event. For example, sitting on the heavy bags ringing the fighting area is a really risky idea for a child (or adult for that matter). If a stick or a fight comes careening your way-get out of the way! At each Gathering there is a different focus. For the knife fights, there will be some surprise rules. And for the stick (and other weapons too!) we encourage people to hide knives and bring them into play during the fight. Remember that you may fight with weapons other than a stick if you can find someone willing to go against you. Please consider stick and knife (aluminum blades OK with us) fights, staff fights, and anything else. In order to more deeply explore certain variables, fighters may agree to "no grappling" rules. In staff fights, the fighters may wear wrestling type ear guards under the fencing masks. There is no charge for fighters but FIGHTERS MUST PRE-REGISTER, even if they have fought before. The Fighter's Registration form can be found on the website. If you are a member of the Dog Brothers tribe an email or phone call will suffice. For all Fighter Registration matters, please contact Cindy at Prettykitty@dogbrothers.com 310-540-6853. You are not pre-registered until your name appears on the list of registered fighters on the website!!! If you have fought before and show up without having pre-registered there will be a $20 fee. We REALLY, REALLY, REALLY don't like having to deal with this on such a busy day so please do both you and us a favor and pre-register. If you haven't fought before and you show up without having pre-registered, you will not be allowed to fight. This will be ruthlessly enforced!

Woof Marc: We don't have you down yet as registered. Please email me at Craftydog@dogbrothers.com Good luck at finding takers on fighting mai sowks! Years ago Salty Dog offered to fight me with those and I passed on it-- they are a formidable weapon. To find takers, I suggest going to http://dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=707 The Adventure continues, Crafty Dog

Woof All: Just doing a quick TTT for this-- this Sunday is the big day. Lots of fighters (see the Registered Fighters page at www.dogbrothers.com and see the "Gathering" page for a map to locate the R1 Gym.) and the filming for the TV pilot is all on track. The Adventure continues, Marc

Woof All: I see its been a while since I posted on this thread. Our most recent "DB Gathering" was on June 25. We had 39 fighters (the most ever) with two from Italy, two from Switzerland, two from England, three from Canada and one from Australia. Witnessing were the most people yet since we moved to holding the Gatherings at R1 (a.k.a. Raw Gym). Fotos from the Gathering are now up at http://www.dogbrothers.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=895 The Adventure continues, Crafty Dog
