Attached you will find a copy of the first Takahashi Dojo 2013 Judo Community Calendar. It is a volunteer effort inspired by Sonny Lundahl who enlisted Rick Davies and Tracey P. Lauriault into the endeavour respectively as photographer & critic and artistic director. Sonny became the project manager and the layout designer. Photos come from multiple sources: the cover and January photos were kindly donated by Dan Plouffe (http://sportsottawa.com/), Frédéric Blanchett is the photographer for the red and white belts on the cover, and for the May photo of Ben and Jacob (https://www.facebook.com/Fredblanchetphotographe). Sensei's June and Tina Takahashi also provided a number of photos from their répertoire, Sensei David Kiang provided the photos for July, Jose provided a photo for November, and Tracey provided a few photos from her archive. The bulk of the photography however was done by our very own Rick Davies from his extensive collection.
