Re: Fids and Fiber - Class Agenda

Hey Matt!
Regarding CEUs.....
We're gonna make it as easy as pie.... we've submitted our class agenda to ISA for approval... they'll tell us how many they think it's worth... (based on hours of instruction and content) and that's about it.
We'll have a sign up sheet for you at the end of the class...along with a certificate of completion...
You sign it, we'll send it in for you.... Don't forget to bring your Cert#.....

By the way... we've also applied for CTSP credits w/ TCIA..Same deal applies... :)

Hopefully that covers it.... if not... hit me up!

Best regards,

Class is almost full!

Hey all...
If there's anyone out there who's on the fence....
Call soon, there's only 1 or 2 spots left! :)

Preparations are nearly complete, and we're really looking forward to having everyone here!

Woodstoves are crankings, ordering food and getting tools and fibers set aside...

As they say on the TV.... "Call now, operators are standing by."

I'll be calling everyone to double check, but
pretty sure they're all confirmed.

Starting to put kits together today...
Fiber, hardware, rings, snaps, tool kits... if you have any
questions, or want something special, please call me today!

Thanks and best regards
Yours in Trees,

Re: Class is almost full!

What time are people planning on making it? Im liking the prospect of not leaving at 5am friday, so gonna head out after the kids hit the sack and im guessing for a 930-10pm arrival Thursday night. Shouldn't be any issue with that,right? Sounds like you're planning on burning the midnight oil anyways!

I just got the TCIA CTSP attendance form back today.

If you are a CTSP, you are eligible to receive 4 CEU's for the class. I'll bring the form with me tonight.
