If I can get away from work I'll be there representing Ioway.
I'll have to keep an eye open for firmer date/location info.

FWIW, I was trying to line Redneck Medic up at the Dewitt Co Sportsmen's Club on March 25 as a GSL sponsored event.  Haven't heard back from him.  If he's available that date, I'd be happy to turn the date & location over to Appleseed as we're getting a little tighter lead-time than I'm comfortable with to adequately promote the class through GSL.

The only costs I know of would be a $150 facility rental fee.  Good quality lunches could probably be provided for an additional $5-7 per person, compliments of DCSC members at the facility.  The range building there has just been cleaned out as of last Saturday and looks 100% better.

As for the training, I had both tactical treatment of GSWs and Redneck's class in Indy back in November/December.  I won't re-attend, but could probably be cajoled into assisting either DCSC or Matt in the logistics if it's on the 25th of March.

Just food for thought.

We are trying to make arrangements for the AS medical event to be on Saturday, March 24 with a venue which won't cost anything. We hope to have the arrangements settled soon. This seems to be a date which is acceptable to Redneck Medic.

I'll pencil the date on my calender.
And if anybody is keeping track of interested people they can mark me down as an almost certain.

For anyone pondering whether or not they should get this training:  Do it.

I spent close to $200 to get similar training from Fortress Defense (a little more tactical and a little less general first aid) and a week or two later took the Redneck Medic class.  I'm very glad I took both.  Redneck did a fine job tailoring a medical class for Appleseed that will serve you well should you ever need this information (and if you teach enough, long enough, you'll need the info).

The "market" price / value for this sort of training is much higher than the $50 being asked in this class.

We are 3 weeks out from the Medical Training and have only 6/20 slots filled for this invaluable training.

How many times have we been to an Appleseed where there were no medically trained attendees (for me yesterday & today)? This training fills a critical gap in being prepared to handled issues on the line. Remember the life saved may be your own. Please check your schedule and commit to be there if at all possible.

Thanks,

I didn't think it was gonna be hard to max out this class.

If you want to open it to non AS instructors, I (or you, Tornado) can promo it at the next Guns Save Life meeting.

Dangit dangit dangit!

I'm SBIT'ing that weekend.

Please make these an ongoing series.  :bow:

Personally, I'd drive about 500 miles one way to attend.

The Medical Training for this Saturday is cancelled. We needed to fill more seats. We will try to offer it again in the future at a time that hopefully has less conflicts.
