Still working on the East Bay location. As soon as I have that locked down I will post a date. It will more than likely be at the end of the year. I recommend Camp Tamarancho, great course setup. We will have follow on classes to bring the 2day course to the next level, and that's what we might use the East Bay location for (this year).

June class is filling up. Still room in the September class. We are the only group out there doing full Land Nav courses. A plotted course using UTM 8digit grid coordinates. Navigating your way with a protractor, map, and a lensatic Military Cammenga or Suunto compass. Don't wait until the course is full.
