Florida IBC scheduled in Myakka, Fl
« on: January 18, 2022, 04:10:23 PM »
Greetings Appleseed Instructors,
 
I want to make you aware of an upcoming Instructor Boot Camp in Myakka, Fl on March 26-27, at the Manatee Gun and Archery club. It is FREE to the Appleseed volunteer cadre, of course, and is designed to enable all of us to help work Appleseed events with even greater simplicity and precision.  Those who have not worked an event for a while may find it a fine refresher and for those who are seasoned instructors, it may be useful to review a bit.

While this event is scheduled for Florida, border raiders are welcome to join us!

Who can come?  It's for Instructors-in-Training, Instructors, Applecore, Shoot Bosses, and even crusty old Senior Instructors!  If you're thinking about becoming an instructor and want to know what it's all about - come on out.  :)


Stuff you need to know:
 
1.  The purpose of the IBC is to help our instructors grow and become better teachers, away from the pressure of being in front of students.  If you are an instructor, instructor in training, or interested in being a Project Appleseed Instructor - Sign up!
 
2.  The IBC is free to attend.  No cost. Sign up!
 
3.  Lodging.  Camping is available with hookups for electric and water. There are also a couple of hotels close by; see the event information page.
 
4.  Don't let the name "Boot Camp" intimidate you.  This is a gentleman's course.  No push-ups, no hazing, no yelling.   Most of our IBC exercises will be in small groups.
 
5.  Attendance at this event will qualify you for your BOOT CAMP rocker.  Sign up!
 
6.  If you've not attended an IBC in the last 12 months, please sign up as a student.   Here is a link to the sign up.  https://goappleseednow.org/?event=myakka-city-fl-instructor-boot-camp-march-26-27-2022

7.  An IBC will jump start your teaching skills and may qualify you for accelerated promotions!

 
Please pass this along to anyone you think may be interested.  The IBC is the method we use to insure everyone is on the same page when we teach using the Appleseed way: SIMPLICITY and PRECISION.  Please join us and invite others. You are part of an elite group - the best rifle instructors in the country.  Come help us all improve as we spread the message of Liberty.
 
This is going to be a great event! Hope to see all of you there... so Sign up!  ^:)^

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
Steve

Thinking of coming for this one during a little vacation. Hope it's warm, I'm a buckeye.

I have signed up for the IBC and am reading {and reading and reading} all I can to prepare for this being a brand new IIT. I found a list of links on the FAQ page in TIPS for the IBC and they look like information I would like to have. However the links don't seem to be working and I am unable to find the information anywhere else. Am I missing something?

Good morning!

Good job on reading up for the IBC!

I recommend checking Appleseed Academy, as much of the information has been consolidated there.

Did you receive the pre-event email with the recommendations on how to prepare?

If you have concerns about a specific link, you can send a note to scuzzy.  However, as an IIT, not all areas on the forum are open to you yet.

Looking forward to meeting you the weekend after next.

DARN -- really wish I could make it!!  Sounds amazing!
ACCEPT YOUR WOBBLE!

It's not about perfection -- it's about progress!!

I LOVE this stuff!

"Perhaps you and I have lived with this miracle too long to be properly appreciative. Freedom is a fragile thing and is never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. Those who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again."  Ronald Reagan
