After attending two Chapman Stick® seminars in Milano (2001) and Valls (Spain 2002) I was toying with the idea of a swiss Stick® seminar in Neuchâtel.

During a trip in Los Angeles at the end of 2002, I talked about it with Emmett Chapman who was very supportive. 

So I took the plunge.  First I had to find a facility, then the teachers and of course the students. 

After numerous e-mails, phone calls, after gathering and producing promotional material, scheduling radio interviews, organising transportation, finding a venue for the stick night and other things I have long forgotten since, thursday september 18 came.
