Well, you know that Bill, Geoff, and I have a standing invite and will be in attendance. Look forward to the official start of the 2016 firearms training season!

Signed up :dancing:

I'll be providing my invaluable demonstrations of "how not to do it!".
Attendees please note that you too can have skills like mine... If you're not careful!
Anyone who want's to look good, just stand next to me :nilly:

These classes are excellent. This will be my fourth time at the Next Steps Pistol. I see no reason to stop attending. The level of instruction from Mark and Brant is not only incredibly high but they manage to make everything applicable to the wide variety of attendees usually present. For the inexperienced, such as myself, the opportunities to step up the learning curve and drink from the seemingly unending well of skills to be mastered are invaluable but the very experienced and expert attendees (of which there are always a few present) also seem to always be in agreement that they've learned or re-learned or just become more adept at the various drills and exercises undertaken in the class.

To be immersed in that kind of environment for a full day is worth a lot in of itself. Add in the camaraderie which is always present (in the 8 of this and similar of Mark and Brant's classes I've attended I've always felt I've been part of a great group of people) and the fact that, in addition to all the above, this is plain old fun!

For anyone reading this who hasn't been to one of these, I can recommend it thoroughly for anyone—old, young, female, male, inexperienced or expert. The environment and atmosphere is convivial, educational, unintimidating and, above all, SAFE!

Looking forward to meeting old and new friends on the 19th.
Geoff.

Linda, my wife, has now also signed up for the March 19 Next Steps class. She enjoyed it so much last year she wants to join us again this year.

Keep in mind, this is a fair-weather person who normally waits until May for guaranteed 70 degree, sunny days to take any class. So for Linda to chance it being cold or at cooler than her threshold temperature speaks volumes of what she things of the class, the instructors, and the camaraderie. She also said t's the best class for her to hone her skills and become comfortable again with her firearm after not shooting at all over winter, actually probably not since the last 70 degree day late last year.

Geoff, you must be the worst student ever. You take this class every chance you get and you just never learn anything. :dunno:

I have to make sure the bar stays low enough that you guys can feel good about yourselves... :P

Funny you should mention that—I almost didn't sign up for this class as I have a pretty demanding concert that night, and I normally don't like to do anything else the day-of, but I figured you guys might get despondent without the service I provide as specified above :beat:

All joking aside, glad you're going to be there for Next Steps, especially given your schedule. Looking forward to seeing you, Bill and the usual cohorts along with, hopefully, some new-comers. See you in a couple of weeks. :thumbsup:

I struck out with three fiends I was trying to get to sign up for this one.
So be it. I know I'll be benefitting from this class—again! Not to mention fresh air, beautiful scenery, and some good fun with a bunch of great folks!

And John & Bill—when I said beautiful scenery, I wasn't referring to you guys—before you start taking credit ;-)

What the temperature going to be like tomorrow? I guess look at Salt Lake and Park City and split the difference, eh?
Based on that it looks like starting around 30 ish and getting up to low 50s.

Layers, I guess—the answer to all conditions ;-)

Well, you made me feel good in one sentence then slapped me down in the next. :crying:

I think you're spot on regarding temperature range and layering. Linda's going to be joining us so given she's a fair-weather person the forecast for tomorrow has her stamp of approval. I think Sterling Poulson promised us not even a hint of a cloud. If there is I'm sure Linda will let him know his forecast was way off. :D

See you and the rest of our cohorts tomorrow. :thumbsup:

Wish I could be there. Still rehabing some tendons in my foot and don't want to push it to much.

It was a great start to the training season. I will have to sign up for some more training. Maybe eventually I can actually start hitting the target.

Thanks for the fun, supportive and safe learning environment to all those that were there and especially the instructors.
