Yoshikawa Sensei will be giving his lecture on the 19th of this month. The title is Looking Behind the Stories of the Famed Seikadô Swords. It will be given twice at 10:30 and 1:30. Kawakami Yoichiro sans' lecture is on March 4th and the title is Regarding Japanese Swords and the Art of the Craftsman. Looks like a day long demonstration from 10 to 4:30 of saya making, sword making and polishing. This information is from the Seikadô website.

For those of us intending to attend the August show but who will not have a table, what are the necessary steps and timing to reserve slots for shinsa evaluation?

when you fill out the registration form it asks your preference for day and am/pm.  As i recall you get a confirmation in advance and it has the day and time on it. so you bring the item at your appointed time and they tell you about when it will be done (maybe 2 hours). it has always been easy and smooth for me

If you want to insure a particular day, it is best to get your registration in early. Timeslot Reservations are sent out in the month before the shinsa. As Mark says you present your sword at the allotted time and it takes about two hours for the sword to clear the room. For your convenience here is the registration form...

I missed the registration form in the other notices, thanks for the link here.  My request will go out in the mail tomorrow.  From now until the shinsa I will likely suffer pink paper nightmares.  :(

“ Be sure to book your room reservation at the show hotel, the San Francisco Airport Marriott Hotel before the block fills up. Their number is 650-692-9100. Don’t forget to ask for the special Sword show room rate of $169.00 per night. If you have any problems booking the room, contact Fred Weissberg.”
