    Peter...I'm not shooting it, I am supposed to go back to work this week for a shut down at NIMO so i won't be there for the road runner. But i still could use a list of the coaches from last years SCTP so i could email them info about the upcoming coaches school. It is starting to fill up

    Just went through this course in San Antonio, had a great time for the most part. Almost passed out due to the lengthy discussion of how to avoid being sued...which will not help you...good people get sued all the time. After we finally got past that, the course got much better. I understand why we spent so much time on the subject, but I was disappointed that it cut into the meat of actually coaching. That was somewhat made up for with the huge binder of info that comes with course...lots of good stuff in there.

    Guess I thought it was going to be more of "how to coach"...do this and do it this way kind of deal. In all fairness, there is a ton of stuff to learn in two days...you can really only graze the surface. Would have liked a lot more time on the range and the chance to work with real new students/shooters...that is tough to arrange! But maybe they could bring some new ATA or AIM shooters...it is not very real when your "students" just smoke every target....heck, they were teaching me about the game and I'm glad they did!!

    Still, I'm pumped! Got my lesson planned for next Saturday, some new drills, some new ideas to try out....gotta start somewhere. Frankly, as a skeet shooter I was surprised to find that trap had so much technique...it always looked like 25 bad Low 7 targets to me!
