SUMMARY: I be gonna git me some larnin'.
Four days of lecture and practice. I haven't done anything like this in a lonnnng time. Whole day Friday of lecture.
Less than an hour's drive from home, but a couple of the days are going to be lonnng.
I've prepared by reading through, and marking up, the entire lonnnng USDAA 2004 version of the rulebook (because, doh! they haven't updated it since 2004, instead just sending out periodic incomplete news releases that we have to piece together to come up with our own mental image of a rulebook).
I'm looking forward to this! What I'm not looking forward to is coming home to the dogs every day after a lonnnnng day and having them point out that I haven't played wif them or nuffin' alllll day.
