Please read the full description before signing up. This course is definitely beginner friendly. But you should already have your AST1. No exceptions, as we will be venturing out into the backcountry/slack country, even though we'll be on safe ground. And this is NOT A COURSE. It's a review.
- We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines at all times while participating in ACC VA events.

Cost Includes:once we know where we're headed, we'll set a fair cost for carpooling

Cancellation/Partial Attendance:
Please review our Etiquette Guidelines!
Note: If you don't show up we will be very hurt!
