Bummer, thanks Gabe. Where generally are these classes held?

Can't say. We stopped teaching them a while ago.

Given the right turnout me and SUA could put one on. You do the leg work for interested parties and we'll see if we can make it happen.

I live in KC but I have a farm near Kirksville. Iíve hosted a couple of things up there before.

Not to step toes but I have access to a dojo in Lenexa. Might be a plan "B" if a needed. Obviously I'll have to clear it on my end with the owner, just throwing it out there.

Either AO would be solid for guys in KC, St Joe, Topeka...

I'm interested too. Can't commit as I am budgeting for what I hope is a fall force on force class in Presscott.
So depending on price and date I'm very interested.

Ok so starting to get this pinned down as long as we have the commitment level we should be able to get it on the calendar for spring/early summer. My thoughts on this is we'll do a gentleman's style course, without live fire, that will focus on self aid, aid, casualty evac, and down/disabled mobility and weapon manipulations.

Let me know what you guys want and we can make it happen.... My CONUS schedule forecast for this year is May-June, Sept-Oct, Jan-Feb

As this will be a boutique, gentleman's, non-shooting, class we will be able to handle a slightly larger than normal class size dependent on venue.

We are forming up content. We have confirmed Chef and his 2 boys, badger that's 4 so who would commit? If Sua is going to carve his limited time out while CONUS with his family I want real numbers for who will come to this. This will be heavily medical and will be highly beneficial for even those who dont expect battlefield injury, for those who keep track Sua did surgery on me at his breakfast table and I documented it with pics. This will be that relevant of a class but I need real numbers for a weekend class.

I need a med refresher and the better half needs med training we're getting married in October we dont have any other major travel planned this year so all we need is dates and cost.

I'm interested, but if it's late May or any time in October I can't commit until closer in.

Just about any other time and I'll move whatever I need to to make this one.

MO. Still pinning down exactly where but likely KC or Kirksville

KC would be great Greg. There are WT'ers in the AO.

Very interested in this class. If it's KC area I would make it work to go to this class whenever it is.
If Kirksville I would still try and make it, but it would depend on when it is.

June would be better than May for me.

As long as I don't have any Army requirements, I'm in too. I'm in OKC so a KC class is too easy.

Is this still in the planning phase?

I just don't want to loose track of it.

Another vote for KC here.

Greg Nichols

Yes. Liking like June. Should have exact dates/location pinned down shortly.

Update,

It looks like I will hosting this course on June 29/30 in the Kirksville, MO area at a private location. Sua and Greg will be instructing. Greg will have the class sign up posted in the near future with additional information, reporting instructions, etc.

More to follow.

The response on here and Facebook has been really strong. I will be posting the class link in this thread and on Facebook so it will likely fill quickly. This is a boutique class that's not on the normal menu that will be heavily medical and will cover more than just GSW, pressure dressing, and TQ use.

While I was hoping for KC I think the statute of limitations has well expired in Kirksville.

looking forward to the details.

I will be submitting today. I had computer issues (knocking over a cup of coffee into my tower) and had to rewrite the description for the class as it's different from TMCO.

Electrons and water don't usually get along Greg. Been there, done that.

I was actually able to talk to Sua in Africa this weekend. He is going to send me a new description NLT Wed. so I can get it posted. He's planning a bunch of demos you aren't going to get anywhere else (Who wants to see me get a battlefield blood transfusion?). Hold tight gang. Dates and location will remain the same.
