Big Choice would be a fine classroom. Since I'm not a paid member of the club and have not been to a meeting in years, I'm not sure what I have to do to reserve the Stevinson meeting room, so alternative locations are not a problem for me. Does anyone have a strong preference? One thing about using Stevinson is that they are very strict about being out of there on time. This cuts both ways, keeps things moving but also can cut short discussion.
I like a IPA with my ham.

I would like to participate. I should be a member by then... Not taking the vote for granted, of course. I don't have a CB yet and figure why buy one and then a ham later.....

You don't need to be a RS member to be a part of this. But don't let that stop you from joining . In fact, will be a good way to get to know a few of the guys and decide if they're worth hanging out with further..

And you still may want a CB- depends on the run you're on, sometimes it's all Ham, other times is mostly CB. Most folks with Ham also have CB, not all though. I'll warn you though if you get used to Ham you're not going to like the CB very much..

Looking at my calendar and considering the options I have updated the original post with more firm date/times and locations.

I have decided to hold the class upstairs at Big Choice Brewing. I would prefer a location a little closer to home (I live close to Ft. Collins) and think the setting would be more casual.

I originally planned on two nights of instruction and a third for potential testing. I can still do that but I believe that would be a lot of material to absorb and get pretty boring. For now I will still reserve 3 days but dispense with the exam on the 3rd night and go with 2 hours each night instead.

If I can get an exam session together I will plan it for the next week, which is Tuesday, August 6.

The class has traditionally been Technician prep but it's loosely structured, so it will depend on who's there and the pace I think. I want to make sure it does not overwhelm people just starting.

As far as the exam, it depends on how many Extra class volunteers I can arrange, assuming I can get the exam part organized at all!

My opinion is had I known the Technician material better I would have done better on the General. Seemed like more of the same, just the next level... so for me, a recap of the Technician's material is paramount to me even understanding the General material. Call this Calc 1, General is Calc 2- you just can't skip the prerequisite or you'll have no idea what's going on. At least I can't.

Looking forward to the class Dave, it's on the calendar.
