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.
BOTH freaking awsome, haha ASC sleepover :P
Awsome idea though, participants would be able to talk about their stuff and what they learned through the night, it'd be a kick! I'm deffinatly in for a full weekend at a point where I'm able to attend (Damn work ...... but it pays for stuff like this)

As for the sleep bit, this scene came to mind right off the bat
YouTube- Full Metal Jacket - Rifleman's Creed

Thats all in the works to be posted on ASU, but, ASU Primary can be found here:

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...04128&t=h&z=19

Kit list will also be posted shortly, but it will be stuff like:

Tent
Cot/Mattress
Sleeping bag with pillow
Toiletries
combination lock for your locker
navy or black cargo pants or slacks
extra underwear socks and shirts
comfortable indoor shoes
your primary AEG
your sidearm (if you have one)
one load bearing system with mags for said equipment
BDUs
Boots
Airsoft PPE such as goggles and masks
1 GMRS Radio (bubble pack is fine)
sunscreen

AEGs must have cases that they can be put away in. AEGs must be field ready, there will be no extensive on-site repairing going on. There is no need for hydration systems or other extended gucci kit - this is about function, not fashion. Be ready to don and doff your gear between classes in 10 minutes. If my students can get firefighting bunker gear and breathing equipment on in under 3 minutes, I am positive airsofters can learn to do it with their kit within 10 minutes (lol).

Pace will be quick.

There are medical and parent consent forms (for those between ages 15 and 17).

There will be a guest handbook that includes various other things as well - we're just crafting that now. But there is nothing unusual required that your typical airsofter doesn't have.

Yes, by staying the weekend, we can lower the pace a little and socialize (this part is actually somewhat planned with a purpose in mind) and since we do breakfast the next day, nobody is rushing to get back out the door and we can start the next day relaxed and fed and ready to carry on.

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!!
I suggest the creation of an ASU shuttle service. Casinos, hotels and real universities have them, why not this one?

Just a thought.

Actually look into an airport limo and share it with 4 to 6 people from the same location. Probably be the same price.

Exclamation IE Issue Addressed - Please Test

OK. I now have the site set to force IE8 to render as IE7.

Let me know if it's still crashing your IE folks, and please remember to clear your cache.

I thought I read on the site that an AEG would be provided. Maybe I was wrong

But in the kit list it states to bring your primary.

AEGs are not provided, it is bring-your-own. When the school begins to roll, we will look at making rentals available but not at this time. Besides, most people want to practice and work on techniques and direct application as it pertains to their personal equipment.

Considering the massive popularity of the new GBB rifles, I am sure that folks want to train on their new gear.

I know the transition to GBB fro AEG is a BIG pile of muscle memory out the window.
