Can anyone confirm the dates for this? Usually, weeklongs are 8 days, right?

This is a great opportunity! One can get 2 NCRC levels this year. Take Level 1 at the 2008 National Seminar at Camp Skyline in Mentone, Alabama May 3 - 10, 2008, then Level 2 at Eastern Region's. :woohoo:

If May in AL conflicts with school schedules, etc. you now have the chance to get the training at this Regional! I'm sure Tony and the folks there will have a great site and program waiting for you.
Be safe,

Well folks I got the word from Jeff Good (the ER-NCRC Coordinator) that the er-ncrc weeklong has been canceled.
It seems that not enough people signed up to have the seminar.

Personally, I'm pretty disappointed. I was looking forward to helping teach the Level 1 class this year.

That said, I WILL go caving that week (I'm off anyway...)
My brother lives in Huntsville and I will try and hook up with him to drop some pits.

Yeah, got the word the other night.

Disappointed was hoping to get my first review under my belt. Oh well.

Anyone want to fly me to California for their weeklong? :-)
