    best part of the training. Ken and I have a unique approach in our

    Guys

    This class is due to the overwhelming positive feedback and requests for another level 1 class - straight up I apologize for the fact it is on mothers day weekend - Ken and i have a hard time co-ordinating schedules and of course springtime weekends always fill up first

    hope you guys can make it as it is a dynamite class - ask anyone that has been to it

    be safe

    I would repeat level I if I could afford both it and level II, but alas, I don't have the funds or time available.

    I figure I'll take advantage of the rarer opportunity, because who knows if the level II will come back in '09...
