For people in the Lewiston, Clarkston, Moscow, Pullman area this may be of interest. Others, not so much.
If any Boomershoot staff wish to attend the class Boomershoot will pay the class fee (but not the USPSA membership fee) and provide transportation between Moscow and Lewiston on the days of the class.
If you are interested but don’t have John’s email address send me an email (ROClass@joehuffman.org) and I’ll forward your email on to him.
I’ll be attending the class if that makes any difference to you.

Subject: USPSA Range Officer 1 class in Lewiston on March 24 & 25!
The Lewiston Pistol Club will be hosting a USPSA Ranger Officer 1 training by our own Kevin Imel, the newest instructor for the National Range Officers Institute, on March 24 & 25, 2012 at the LPC Indoor Range (2419 16th Ave., Lewiston, ID).
Those who complete the RO training will become official USPSA certified Range Officers. For those who don’t know, ROs are the ones who run each shooter and do all the shouting at our monthly matches (the shouting is my favorite part). Here are some more details: http://www.uspsa.org/about_NROI_new.php.
You do have to be a USPSA member to become a USPSA Range Officer when the class begins ($40, https://www.uspsa.org/uspsa-join-renew.php). You will be able to join or renew and pay for a USPSA membership on the morning of the class (via a separate check made out to USPSA). There are some other advantages in joining the USPSA, most importantly, showing the number, variety and integrity of people who shoot. The magazine’s kind of nice, too.
This is also a great opportunity for seasoned ROs who have let their credentials slide to get right with the Range Gods. You know who you are.
The class itself is $40 payable by cash or check made out to the Lewiston Pistol Club at the door on March 24th. The class starts on Saturday at 8:30 AM sharp and runs through about 5 PM. The Sunday class start time will be set by the instructor and will end in the afternoon, probably before 5.
All participants will need to bring a rulebook and a notebook for use during the seminar. You can print your own copy from here: http://www.uspsa.org/rules/2010HandgunRulesProof3web.pdf.
The Sunday class includes some hands on practice running shooters, so you will also need your eyes and ears, firearm and 100 rounds of ammo. You will not need your own timer for the class, but in practice, most ROs buy them at some point. We have examples of all three main brands at our monthly matches.
Questions – send them in.
