Well, I thought the weekend class was all classroom work, but we were in the pool for four hours each day. Learned a lot, had plenty of fun, and passed the written test. Next weekend we're headed for the quarry. As of yesterday they were set to pack 7mm wetsuits for us, but it's hitting 96F now so maybe those won't be necessary.
