    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).
