Hey Cap, I'm looking for an instructor for the Eastern Idaho Fools Training Seminar in 2010. It's held in Idaho Falls, Idaho. We had Chief McGrail last year and we're having Chief Lasky this year. If the funding is there, we'd like to do a day of lecture and a day of HOT. We're always in need of better engine ops.
Anyhow, let me know if you're interested. We're pretty flexible on the date; Spring, Summer, or Fall. A lot of us over here consider you one of our mentors.
