Mike just got back to me on $. Looks like $100 each..well worth the price and that was the fee on the Sky. You won't regret it..honest. Shit, I should run for office w/ that line. If you've followed the Skagit thing over the years, and heard the names of Mike Kinney, Ed Ward, Mike McCune..the skagit masters, you'll know what an opportunity this is. Sign up boys and girls..this is an inland empire clave #1. I'll scout the canyon for a gravel bar that's condusive to a class. If any of you have a suggestion on a particular spot, give me a shout.

Thanx Craig..I had a great pm from mumbles but had a lousy try a cut and paste..too much OMJ juice and looooosing seahawks.

Wanderer..welcome aboard mate. I'll hopefully let everyone know a solid date and location, if Mike doesn't beforehand. Mike is leaning toward Eburg, or mid canyon. I may get out and scout tomorrow. As is said..stand by to stand by.

Very, very interested as well. What level of experience, proficiency is this going to be geared to?

I can make Oct 9th or 10th.

Mike T, based on my one time experience with Mike on the Sky..no experience necessary. I had none, and still do..that's why I inquired if Mike would come over and give us eastsiders a shot at his expertise and tutelage. He's an awesome teacher..very one on one, even with a class of a half dozen or more. You won't regret the experience, although I may going out on a limb with that one. Welcome aboard for the ride, although you may regret it in the short term gear requirement bawling:

Is that right? Plan on either date..haven't heard back from Mike on exact date or locale.

Mike, does this sound doable? Sounds you have a lot of interest over here. Let's make this happen..and guys, thanx for your interest in this.

Update..Mike's thinkin the Lummna (Squaw Cr) launch/parking (just south of Wymer in the canyon) area for the lesson. He'll let us know the date and time.

My apologies, but either of the dates in October won't work for me. Kids in college and events going on to support as well as a trip on the lower Deschutes. Just wanted to make sure you were aware.
