AWESOME guys like jules said keep ideas flowing we need all the info and ideas we can get from YOU in order to try and figure out what we want and who we want bring in and yes all are correct as PRICE & LOCATION plays a huge part in this.
My theory on this is and this is my 2 cents on this there are a lot of teams out there that charge 2-500 for a course in the states I know i am willing to travel to those events and take part keep in mind if your going to the states for that course your looking at then,
350 course, travel to and from maybe 200 gas, 100 hotel, 50 for food = total of 700 roughly
that\s $700.00 possibly not saying its actual cost that you just guesstimate spent to take a course great so if we wanted to do and event with some one this could save you the money as well with all the extras or we can try and figure and work something out as well to help with a package deal.
I like the idea of a backyard class as well like expatbill said gear it towards everybody not a lot ppl want spend 2-500 on a course as yep money is not there or very expensive but the idea of a open class works very well and maybe a better route to take for all of us.
who would you like to see possibly host the class?
and again what would you be willing to spend if your to attend a class?
GTA sounds like it would be a better location for a lot of people.
keep the ideas flowing.
