I am sorry to have to do this as this decision was not made lightly it was made be our heads not our hearts. I will look into moving it to another date down the road. I think my biggest mistake was trying to hold it on a long weekend . perhaps I will see if another weekend that isn,t a long weekend would be better. anyone with imput I would like to hear from.....you have no idea how poorly I feel about this,sorry.....dale 604 340 8496
    Just shows that liking/disliking something behind a keyboard is too easy. When I registered for it, I was worried that I could not get in because I was a couple of days late...

    I think having it on a long weekend was actually a good thing; I could go to the camp and still have one day to prepare for the work week.

    Thanks for planning this; I might not be able to attend the future one, but I appreciate the effort.

    As for the advertising, I think it could have helped if the stores that sell hunting supplies had a poster advertising for this; a lot of the new hunters are regular visitors as they are trying to figure out what to buy and the stores will actually benefit from this in the long run as well.

    Cheers

    I thought the idea was to take the course and be better prepared to go Hunting.

    well that's great news! I would like to get me and my son out there. The last one we were very interested in but the time ended up not working for us. so we are glad it was cancelled. What's the cost going to be? and what are the activities offered?
