OC Red Cross Bootcamp


Here is the latest I have at this time.

Only people I show wanting to carpool at this time are

Travis (bringing the Trailer)
Danny Briggs (Riding with Travis)
Delora & Grady, if you could take the explorer from Hqtrs)
Tim Everingham (You would ride with Delora and Grady)

Karen Doose (Driving)
Georgia (Riding with Karen)
Mike Stelmach (not sure if you are going but could ride with Karen)
Mert (Thought you wanted to go, please confirm)

That's all I have on my list as going and wanting to car pool, let me know if there are others. If you are going and driving yourself please let me know so they can save spaces for us together.

Below is a list of activities you can expect to happen during the training. Notice it starts a 8am and ends at 12pm then lunch and on our way home. Leaving from Hqtrs you should plan for at least 1hr 30 min of travel time to get there. With the trailer you should add 15 min so 1hr 45min travel time.

If anyone going by themselves need directions let me know.

Remember BRING YOUR STUFF!!!!!
