The short answer is yes (unless you want to rent mine :lmao:).

Yes, we need Master Trainers so we can conduct the Training without involving UFWDA.

Request from Peter Vahry, UFWDA International VP:


Hello Doug, thanks for the posting and it will be good to get the Awareness program rolling again. We've got another issue of Voice in the planning stage and curiously the material deadline is 25 Sept, so if you or someone else could grab some photos during the training and maybe wrap some words around them then we'd have a great basis for promoting further interest.

Regards
Peter

So if the Sundowners are planning a write-up, or if not, we'll try to recruit a camera and writer, United will probably print it in their Voice magazine.

I am going cheap and camping over at Fort Custer Rec Area (instead of staying at the hotel), about 20 minutes east of most of the activities. Deb and Jonathon are staying home, have 2 spare bunks if anyone else is feeling cheap.

I would love to attend this, but I just don't have the vacation time right now. On top of that I just burned a couple more days for a death in the family. I guess I'll have to be trained when one comes up maybe next year.

Sorry I can't make it.

Thought about this...but ended up getting tickets to the MSU/Notre Dame Game on Saturday, which also happens to be Ari's birthday.

So, sorry guys, hopefully some of you get trained and then we can have another one.

Is it to late...ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Come join us, if Saturday is the only day that fits your schedule...GREAT!

Sunday is for those who wish to become a "Master" in that they can begin to teach the training as well and therefore is not a requirement.

I will check with the boss this evening and see if we have any plans. If not I will be there. Thanks for the response.
