Slow School for Spring Training????

Who would like me to do the school in Bryson City??? It is a lot of work, cones, measuring, certificates, teaching. Not that I do not enjoy it, but like to get feel if you want it? Let me know.

Are you still planning on the "Slow School"? I've read so many good things about the Slow School, I hope it's a go. But it doesn't look like there is a lot of interest, only 7 replies out of 40 or so registered to go. What is the minimum number you need to sigh up?

Howard, last year John offered LT Slow School the same time and place where we held Spring Training Camp.. While is wasn't sponsored by STC, because of liability issue, John provided the training and course over two days, several folks took advantage of having the opporunity to do LT Slow School and Spring Training Camp during the same days...also the training company, which John is instructor provided the registration and insurance and such.. for a cost per rider.

I secured the parking lot at a local supermarket and John handled the sign up for LT slow school and provided the training along with his wife helping... a great school and was enjoyed by everyone that signed up with John.

I contacted John again this year for the same arrangement, however John had some schedule problems, but in a post a few weeks ago it seemed that he was trying to work out the details to come again and teach the class and offer LT School School...

Maybe some others that took the course will chime in here and tell their experiences...

I hope that John can work out the details and have the class again, this will give us and attendees two opporunities to take a riding seminar, Susan Galpin will be offering a seminar also "Think Quick Be Safe"...

See the thread about Susan Galpin

Spring Training Camp for Riders for all the combined information.

I will do it next year, in fact I bought a 7x16 enclosed trailer to transport, motorcycle and cones. Not just for that, but had the LT bootcamp in thought. Have fun and we will be thinking about you guys up there.
