Progress Update

- Owner has approved our use of the venue, this is a GO!!!.

- TF applications being received and vetted.

- TF Symposium scheduled for June 26 @ ASU in the Great Room 10am - 3pm.

- Curriculum outlines being developed and readied for the 26th meeting.

Tentative first set of classes for weekend of July 17-18. $25 per course, 2 courses in a day ($50 day fee), 2 days. Discount for the weekend which includes hospitality and program fees for all 4 courses, $120. Guests electing to take all 4 courses will be given preference over participants wishing only to take partial courses.

These first 4 courses offer the Leadership Certificate (LC tab) which will be the prereq for the next set of courses. All courses are certificates of participation and achievement, and are not accredited academic courses (sorry guys, no college or university credits here).

Course path and outline will be posted on the site shortly. All courses are designed to appeal to all levels of airsoft players. Don't think just because its a "101" course that you won't learn something new or have fun. Remember, these are workshops, NOT lectures or brain dumps.

Max guest capacity for a weekend: 75

If you do all 4 courses, its $120 flat, including your food for the weekend. This is $60 a day. Given that you get a shirt, and a bag of BBs (0.25g ECOBB - we are ECO only) and your meals, all inclusive, I think its a pretty good deal. But, we will see. If the community wants this and wants this venue, then sign up and we will make this happen. Unfortunately the cost to reserve this facility is high - and its already on my credit card.

EDIT: I moved it to July 17-18 so as not to interfere with the large FR game being held on July 10-11. Sorry if this caused any confusion for the short time I was adjusting the dates. It also gives me a little more time to get all the ducks in a row. Please guys, lets make this happen!

That price is MORE then fair. If I was to guess I would have thought the day would have been 100$+ Including the meals and courses. I suppose having room for 75 lowers the cost. Still very reasonable.

I have a tentative confirmation (subject to her superior's approval, which is proforma) our guest speaker for the July 17 banquet, and it will indeed be an OPP officer from the Caledon/New Tecumseth detachments area. I know this officer very well, and I think she'll have some very interesting stuff to tell everyone about the OPP north of highway 9, their exposure to airsoft and the inside scoop as to how they are reacting to it. Its well worth the dinner!

I was thinking..hoping rather, to get some sort of ride program going for people looking to attend in the windsor area. I'm in Belle River and have no way to get there so far...
I'm sure if we can get a couple people together willing to share the cost of gas and attending for the same amount of time it would make things much easier and could even get a lot more people to attend courses. If anyone is willing to participate in this idea please let us know. I'll walk there if I have to bu I MUST attend..
I'm looking to go for all courses the entire weekend.
Maybe we can make a list of what carpool/drivers are where, what the routes are if ppl are on route and want a ride, cost of gas, number of riders, time staying at ASU, when pool departs to/from aswell. Hopefully this works..or I atleast find a ride lmao...

Btw, GREAT idea!!

Awesome idea CerberusNet. Also the less cars we have on the flattop, the more room for the tent city. I do recommend people go for the mealplan and stay overnight, it will be a really good social event as well.

Incidently, we have just secured the domains asucanada.com and .org. Look for a redirect shortly, right now it redirects but its the default redirect with a stoopid adbar on the bottom. I am sure Blackthorne will fix that shortly.
