We're about 2 weeks out from our event.  So far, we have 15 people signed up.  Let's light this rocket!

WE COULD USE ANOTHER INSTRUCTOR OR TWO.  PLEASE LOOK AT YOUR CALENDAR AND HELP OUT!
 
COF
+ "Standard 25M Appleseed"
+ Let's KILL THE TIME MONKEY and keep things moving!!   
+ I will be running a line of laser NPOA demo rifles in place of the carding the sights exercise - BRING LASER DUMMY RIFLES IF YOU HAVE THEM

Students: 
+ 15 students so far.  Looks good
+ Nice mix of families.  Only 1 youth shooter (11 yrs) so far.  A few folks in their 60's 

Instructors:
Shoot Boss:  SteelThunder

PC advancements to be evaluated: 

Logistics:
+ This is the midwest...in August...in Indiana.  It will likely be scorching hot so be prepared
+ I have 2 8x8 EZ Ups...we will use these.  If you have some, please bring them to cover the shooting line if it is really raining hard.
+ Gene Henderson is our LBOTG.  He will have a target line set up on Thursday night (yay!!).  We just need to bring backers
+ Instructor meeting at 7:45 am on Saturday.  Please be there no later than 0730 for set up.  I'll figure out if we need to be there on Friday night or not.

7th Stepping -- All the cadre should be working to generate shooters on the line as well as lookout for students that display marksmanship abilities, even temperament, enthusiasm, a connection with the message, ability to communicate, willingness to help out.  Please point these characteristics out to me during the weekend.

Instructors Carrying:  Legal OC/CC encouraged by instructors however, a minimum of Level 2 retention is required.  Make sure you check IN gun laws

Requal:  Unlikely with the low number of instructors present.

I figured I'd bump this thread since looks like ST needs some help there.

I'd just received an email from a guy interested in registering so I'd checked to see who the SB was. And then saw that ST has a lot of people registered and no help.
