October FTF will commence at 1300 on the 27th back at the riverside.  Topics  will include maps and compass work, again.   As background prep, please read the .pdf on maps and compass from Jim Randall. 

Max has been holding training opportunities all summer at his site on a certain hillside in West Virginia.  His recent article on tactics and gear is the premiere lecture you should all hear.


Tentatively scheduled for the 9th and 10th of November, one of the many things on the schedule for the November FTX will be a review of proper firearm handling and a little basic shooting practice.  You might want to put off packing any gear till the last moment as the weather is fairly unpredictable in mid-November.
