    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.

    MP 10 has a wide open bar, lots of room, and lots of positions for video.

    While I am at the other end of the 410 Hwy, and thirsty for how to use my new toys, I would like to attend as well.

    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.

    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:

    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.
