Where are folks coming from?

Postby Stridergdm » Jun 19, 2013 8:48 am

So, we started looking at where folks are coming from:

Here's a small sampling:

CA - 4
CO - 4
CT - 1
GA - 4
IA - 1
IN - 5
KY - 2
MA - 2
MD - 3
ME - 1
NC - 1
NY - 8
OR - 1
PA - 2
PR - 2
TN - 1
VA - 6
VT - 1
WV - 1

There's a number of folks who didn't enter their home state, so this list is far from complete.

But I think it pretty much covers the majority of the country. At least 18 states plus Puerto Rico are represented.

What are the vertical qualifications for level two. Mainly time and distance on climbing the rope?

All the requirements are here.

And that's a great question since I'm sure others need to know also.


Also, for instructors reading, make sure to download the latest copy of the curriculum from the curriculum site.

Sounds good.

I'm looking forward to Level Two. Always fun.

Anyone want to go but cant afford the full cost? I have been kicking around the thought of a certain profession for the last 20 years. I applied a few months ago and was accepted this evening. My classes start July 9th. So....its too late for a refund and obviously I cant make it. If someone would like the 300.00 that I paid send me a pm.

I cant wait until my regional coordinator sees this. :argue:

Things are getting close.

Just printed out the first batch of name tags.

But that's ok. You can still sign up and we'll print a name badge.

BTW, we've been making a point of draining the clouds this past week and flushing the caves out to clean them.
