Unfortunately, some over-saturation issues have arisen with my home range, Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club (BRPC.) I consider myself very lucky to have had such an outstanding relationship with my home range for over 11 years. But, due to a huge number of new Instructors coming over from other ranges, this easy and prefect relationship has become more difficult and less ideal. I do not write this as a form of complaint, I write this so all of my students understand that my world has substantially changed. These changes will directly affect the scheduling of my classes and the convenience of my students. I will continue my outstanding relationship with BRPC, but it will not be with the same ease, regularity, and convenience as it was in the past.
I will no longer be able to schedule courses months in advance. There will only be a 60 day notice between securing the range and running the course. I will no longer be able to schedule courses on the courtesy ranges, on the weekends, except for the two Instructors bay. I will no longer be able to schedule longer range courses on the weekends. The competition to schedule courses has increased significantly.
With that said, I will be needing to re-evaluating everything that I have done in the past, in regards to my local courses.
I am putting out an open call to all of my students, to see if there is anything that they can do to facilitate securing a range, in order for me to continue teaching courses on a regular basis and that will allow for me to schedule courses well in advance. The guidelines for hosting a course can be found here.
I am also putting out an open call for securing venues to teach my CQB courses. Those guidelines can be found here.
Together we can overcome this set back and do what needs to be done to make it nothing more than a minor obstacle.
