Just checking on the dates for this.  Instructor Scheduling has it listed as the 15-16th.  We're still on for the 29th, right?

IBC EIP says Jan 29-30. We are still on.

We have an Appleseed on the 15-16th of Jan. Same place.
Must have been some confusion with Event scheduling.

So we are a couple weeks out from the IBC.  Who's actually coming and signed up?  Last time we had to reschedule because only 2 people were going to show, surely we won't face that again.

For those of you planning to attend, I hope you have read your instructor manual and Paul Revere's Ride.  Come prepared, as we will be asking you to demonstrate the course of instruction.  We will also talk about how to tell the Story, so it will help if you are familiar with it.  Oh, and bring your centerfires.  We will be discussing KD and how to teach it, so we might as well do some shooting, right?

Also, are we doing anything about food?  Potluck? Ordering pizza?  I'll be bringing cookies of course.

Let's start talking this thing up!  Gromit and I will be there.  Will we be talking to ourselves?  Where will you be?

I was at the Ikes today getting set up for our Winterseed next weekend and we were talking about the IBC we'll be hosting.  I confirmed that we'll have the range available for some KD shooting on Sunday if we have the time.

Awesome!  Sharps you considering bringing your grill to this one so we cook onsite?  I'll come over to help you load it if you are...

So we have 3 coming.  Two of which are already RHs.  Where is the rest of Nebraska?

Greg

Pre-reg thread shows 5 signed up, and I'm not one of them.  So I would be number 6; which is a good start, but I think we can do better!

Gibbs - can you work on the BB guys?

Greg - Who's coming up with you to run it?  Let me know if you guys need a place to crash.  I can make bacon tots for breakfast.    ;)

Bacon tots?  I want to crash at your house too!

I can bring my grill.  It's a heavy SOB.

I will also be there.

Last I knew, Bixby was registered and was planning the trip. Have not been able to raise him for a while.

Doesn't sound like the Broken Bow Crew will be able to make it. Work schedules are conflicting. I'll see if I can get Pitspitr on the horn. He is gunning for IIT next April. This will be good for him too.

I'll be in the Link area that weekend anyway, but I have a commitments Saturday morning and early afternoon. Would a person be able to jump in on the second day? I'm probably going to have to go through it a second time anyway since I don't have the patch yet.

Ultimately, it's up to Greg and Gromit about only attending Sunday, but since you'll be all the way down in Lincoln anyway and you're a future member of the NE Instructor Corps, I don't see a problem with you dropping in on Sunday, Pitspitr.  Keep persisting and you'll get that patch this year!

Greg/Gromit - What say you guys?

If you come, bring warm clothes because we're going to try and get out to the 300 yd range for some work on teaching come ups.

Hi Guys! I had tried to post earlier, but there was a SNAFU
Has there been a decision on how meals are going to be handled? I need to know since I am coming up from Kansas. Also can you locals make a hotel recommendation??

I think Sharps is bringing a grill, so if you're a carnivore, bring some meat.  ;D

There are a couple hotels down the road from the range.  I've stayed in the AmericInn and the Holiday Inn is next door, so consider checking rates at both.

I don't have a big problem with anyone just coming on Sunday, but if you are an IIT you probably won't be advancing any levels if you only attend Sunday.

So is that everyone that's coming?  Gibbs/ZH, you better get your IITs to this IBC if you have to drag them out.  You won't be getting another one anytime soon...   ~~:)

Of course, if there aren't many people, we'll blow through the required stuff and get to do more of the fun stuff...   :---

So, how many are we looking at total?  If it's under a dozen or so I'll bring burgers for everyone on Saturday courtesy of Koenig Farms Inc. if someone wants to bring buns and the rest of the fixin's.  I like you guys, but not enough to donate my steak  ;D

How late is too late to Register? I won't know if I can make it until after Wednesday. And I realize I can't make IIT I just figured I'd get a leg up on it.

Pitspitr - You can pre-reg upto Thurs, I believe.  But if you don't get pre-regged, just show up and we can take care of registration at the clubhouse. 

I'll bring a couple cases of soda.  I'll grab one of Pepsi; any other requests?  A sugarfree one?  Mountain Dew for caffeine to keep the Orange Hats awake while the Red Hats drone on?  First response gets to call the second case.   ;D

How about a case of Monster? :D

Just kidding...that's stuff's expensive.

How about Iced Tea or something like that for us non-soda drinkers.

It's starting to look as though I'm going to end up having to work next weekend instead of going to the track meet as I had planned. If I end up working it's probably going to preclude a trip to Lincoln. If not, I'm going to be there. Won't know for sure for a few more days.

Right now, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to make it. If I end up being able to come the above option is what I'll have to do.

Ok biker...  How long have you been an instructor now?  What time does Appleseed start? 

In case you can't remember, it's 08:30.  See you Sunday!
