Testing started Friday with a select group ofSix. They had a hard Task Master (Mrs. Hutchinson). She and her loyal follwers tried break the Six but to no avail. They conquered the tasks with Herculean effort and a lot of sweat on the floor.
Saturday the attention was turned to all of those fortunate to get a testing slip.Everyone did a great job with their forms, techniques and board breaks. The Six did a demo that brought the crowd to their feet. Never before had they seen such precision and speed. The cat like agility and swiftness of hands of the Six will be talked about for ages to come.
