We Were Pioneers! After a few emails back and forth between Bill Douglas and Laddie Sacharko in Dec 1998, Laddie persuaded some T’ai Chi friends in joining together to create the CT World Tai Chi & Qigong Day Event which later grew, and grew some more. Not knowing at all what would transpire, trusting and letting go into the Tao, we shouldered the risks, invested our time and money, and worked hard to build the trust and confidence of the teachers who have annually celebrated with us. With the tradition established, an institution well founded: others will follow and reinvent it over and over again
