 We are glad you can join us. You will also have a great time. And you will eat very well. I am looking forward to meeting you in person.
 We are gathering interest from even more sponsers.

 I do not want hype this because when I say people are signing up , it means they are.
 If you go to our website and read what folks had to say about last years event it will give you an idea.
 We have about an 80% "come back again" repeats.
 We do have a limited number of folks we can handle. Last year we had to turn people  away. It is first come first serve.

Sorry to be a necromancer and revive this from the dead, but I thought you guys might like to know this.

I received this correspondence from "Stand Sure Training" this morning

Quote
Stand Sure Training would like to donate TEN (10) “First Course Certificates” to Dirt Time.

Each “First Course Certificate” is good for a first time student to attend the 4 Day Defensive Handgun Class at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, located near Pahrump, NV. The retail cost of $2000 for each student will be taken care of by Stand Sure Training.
All other costs are up to the student attending the class; food, travel, hotel, ammo, etc.

The web page for the class is:
http://www.frontsight.com/courses/defensive-handgun-training-course.asp

Stand Sure Training currently does training for Military and Law Enforcement but wishes to support Dirt Time 09 with the opportunity to send ten people to this outstanding school in Nevada.

I look forward to coordinating this training opportunity for the attendees you pick.

Just thought you guys would like to know, The podcast is going to have some pretty strong representation at the event. At last count, there were about 14 folks attending via the podcast. Not all of them are forum members, but they are listeners.

We still have spots available. So, if you're interested in joining us for a heckuva good time I would suggest signing up before the magazine comes out next week.

I must admit I am proud of being a part of this community

I can not speak for Dirttime, Hoods Woods or WW, I can say that the idea of an event in the NE has been discussed and the logistics are being explored.

Guys, Alan and Dude put an incredible amount of work into these events! The after action discussion from each event is nothing short of brutal. Everything MUST work as advertised. It's one thing to have a local get together, it's another to have a paid event with meals provided. It is a whole new level to do the kind of workshop setting with meals like the Dirt Time events. It's about the quality. It's why they cap the attendance and charge what they do. They also have people coming from all over North America (at the very least!) And that's just the instructors!

There may be a couple spot's left yet!

HTH!

I have read a lot about this event and I believe that it is a very difficult thing to pull off, my hat is off to Alan and Dude for doing it.
I am really looking forward to it.

On a side note Muddy, what is HTH! ?

 Thanks for the support Muddyboots.... He by the way is one of our instructors . His indepth knowhow has to seen and heard in person to believe it.

 He will show you tricks with a tarp that will surprise you. Among other things.

 DT09 is right on track , we are 3 months out at this point....

 Some of you may have seen , or heard about a misunderstanding on another forum, about DT09.... Too bad but theses things happen.
 It was about the this swine flu thing. Really has nothing do with what we are doing 3 months down the road.
 It in no way impacts what we are doing. This event has never been about one forum, or members of one forum .
 We have always had folks from a variety of places. 

 One thing, a thread that has run through every one of the Dirttime Events. A great learning experience.
 A lot of fun. Friendly people, all with the same interests. All willing to share what they know and also a desire to learn more.
 I have been in the "survival" mode and teaching survival for many years. I am still hungry to learn more, you can never know enough.
 The best weapon is your brain, if it is stuffed with the right info.

 We believe in passing on knowhow, and skills. Our goal is that you end up "owning" the skills.
 Thats why we search out the best instructors, by the same token thats why many continue to caome back.

 One thing you should know.... We have NO overlapping classes... You will be able to attend all the classes if you so desire.
 the exception is the bow making class. But that class you can leave and come back to as needed. Or as you desire.

 The food we will have, all mostly a bunch of Dutch ovens , is fantastic...Line up now...

 Looking forward to meeting all of you Survival Pod Cast folks. Looking forward to meeting Jack in person. See ya..

 Dude...check yerown six

Yep! The magazine just came out, this week! The distributer sends out different areas on different days. Hopefully, they should all be sent out by the end of a couple of weeks, maybe sooner.

Jack, we've had a lot of response, mostly inquiries, over your podcasts, thanks for promos. 

Guys this event is gonna rock.

By the way, HTH means hope that helps

Dude, You're welcome! <Now I have to live up to the Hype! Great!  :D >

Alan, Expect a call from me...Logistics...

TW, MS etc. HTH is a pool chemical... it's fun to add to hair cream (don't!) but I use the same letters to mean "Hope That Helps" as Alan stated. I do my best to answer questions in the most helpful, accurate way possible; some people don't like the answer because so often they want answers that match their expectations not reality.

we're three months away. things are going great and we have exceeded 100 people. We've picked up a couple more podcasters (I'm excited about that), maybe more as soon as I can confirm where they heard about the event. Even though we've met the magic number, we've decided to keep registration open for a while longer, due to the overwhelming response. Also we have some more folks who've requested payment information, prior to us reaching the magic number, and we are waiting their enrollment.

We've also added a couple of more sponsors and an instructor.

Sponsors

Adventure Medical Kits
Total Resources Intl

While both of these companies are similiar they offer different products which are useful to all. As some of you know, I am a huge fan of AMK's heetsheet emergency blankets and their emergency Bivy.

instructor

Dave Canterbury —owner of Wilderness Outfitters Archery and Pathfinder training school, Dave is most popular for his videos on survival and preparedness, found on Youtube. You can catch Dave and his videos Wildernessoutfittersarchery.com
