We are currently negotiating with the Izaak Walton League of Marshall County regarding the usage of their clubhouse and range for classes in the Marshalltown area. If things go as planned we will hopefully be able to start offering the NRA Basics of Personal Protection Outside of the Home (PPOH) in July.
Melody is enrolled in the NRA's Refuse to Be a Victim (RTBV) instructor course this June and we will be adding that to our curriculum as well. We will most likely be seeking another venue for the RTBV classes and my try to have the YMCA in Marshalltown host these classes for us.
We will not be holding any classes the month of May as we are attending training classes of our own as well as the NRA PPOH Instructor Course. I will be taking Pistol II and III at the Tactical Defense Institute of Ohio to meet the pre-requisites for their Team Tactics Course. Melody was going to attend these as well but as she will be into her second trimester with our second child that much shooting is not advised.
We hope that next Spring she will be able to attend the level II and III class so that we can take their Team Tactics Course and better develop a curriculum for a Couples Concealed Carry Course to be offered in 2012.
