We will have a kitchen available and are able to overnight there so bring your sleeping bags and cots.  No showers, but bathrooms (with flush toilets!!!)  Beats the heck out of those, on the line, porta potties!!

DonD, who is our State Coordinator and Master Instructor will be the SB for the event.  This is especially important for you new IITs to attend to learn how to do the instruction the right way from the beginning.  Just like we instruct the students at the shoots.   O0  This is just as important for all our RH and SB folks also.  I'm sure Don will have a "few things" for us to do!!! ::)

Fee:  $20 per participant plus donation of food for potluck meals while there.  We will be putting together 5 meals so we'll need to plan accordingly.

Overnight available:  Overnight sleeping in sleeping bags/cots allowed.  No showers.

Well it seems that Patriot Gal is clairvoyant.  ;) I do have a few things for you to do.  ^-^ How about some homework?  &) I expect all the IITs to present at least some of the history. Therefore, you should either study some of the history in the appendix or come up with some of your own.  ~~:) It doesn't have to be an entire strike. You just need to gain some experience at presenting some portion of the history before a group.  @)

Keep checking back on this thread in case I come up with something else.  >:D  O0

I'm looking forward to meeting you all.

Again the timing on this is poor and motivation suspect.

Several of us in IL have already signed up and paid for an NRA certification clinic on this same weekend. It is a good tool for several of us to have. The date of that seminar was published well in advance.

I regretably will not be able to attend the IBC. I had also registered for NRA certification training that weekend as well. Getting NRA certified has been something I've wanted to do for some time.

I wish the timing would have worked out to be able to do both.

Thanks,

Karl

Sorry to hear some may not be able to attend due to some NRA training.  Does anyone know how many that will involve?   

This weekend was scheduled as it has always been the IBC weekend in Illinois.

Here's some historical information on the IBC. 

Note that the promotions which are mentioned would not take effect until each IIT attends a full Appleseed shoot following the IBC.  However, you should be easily be able to attain the next IIT level at the next shoot as a result of the IBC.   O0

I had made the offer to host the IBC, but it needed to be after the January 14 weekend, as that is the last firearm Illinois Deer season weekend.  The offer still stands, if the schedule can be changed to a later date.

I too would like to attend the IBC but have previously committed to the NRA training on the weekend of the 14th-16th.  Please consider an alternative date.  Thanks.

I've received a few PMs about the cost for the IBC. Don did a bit of checking and this is what he found:

http://appleseedinfo.org/smf/index.php?topic=19671.0

Instructor Boot Camp, (IBC):

IT4, RH (and above) attend IBCs for free.
IIT0 to IIT3 pay for their 1st IBC/RBC, unless they fit in any of the other categories, but thereafter are free.
Non-Instructors pay $70.00 for their first IBC, unless they fit in any of the other categories, but thereafter are free.


Where it says "unless they fit in any of the other categories", just like shoots, that means that anyone under 21, women, LEOs, active military and reservists are free. 
If this is a hardship for anyone, pls PM dond or me.  The important thing is that you are able to attend.

Thanks everyone, for all you do for Appleseed!   O0

Regret that I cannot attend due to a conflicting training event--although I was looking forward to participating and learning from DonD.  Another weekend perhaps?
