CTX 3030 Boot Camp

I went to Andy Sabisch's CTX 3030 boot camp this past Sunday in Knoxville, and I was very impressed! The class was informal, but very informative. In the first hour alone he had covered a lot of the mistakes that I have been making, both from my lack of knowledge about the machine, and from trusting incorrect information in the manual. The day was split between class time, and time in the field re-enforcing what was gone over in class. It was a very worthwhile experience I would recommend to anyone with a CTX 3030. I can't wait until this weekend to get out to my site and try some of the things that I have learned, now that I have a better understanding about what settings to use in what circumstances. Thank you Andy and Charlene for a great learning experience!

Gotta agree with you on the Bootcamp, very informative, enjoyable and fun. I was fortunate to go to both the FBS and Deus camps and it was a great weekend. I encourage everyone to go if you can at all make it.

If you like Andy's books, you'll love his classes. He covers everything in the CTX book, but in a class he can stop and clarify/expand at the request of anyone. This leads to a more personalized learning experience + has the benefit of going deeper into areas that one person may not have thought about. First class operation all the way; not just in content but in logistics (great job, Charlene).

Agreed, I don't know how he does it for that price (if you figure in his flat tire he probably went in the hole on this one) :-(
It was a great class, well laid out, and very informative.

Not to mention some pretty cool stories on break. I even got some Excalibur schooling on the side.

I had a couple of questions last night from my weekend hunt. It is pretty cool to be able to pick up the phone and call Andy with the questions, and get them answered right then, no rush, just like you were still sitting in the class room.
Thank you Andy and Charlene for a first class operation!

We locked in Aberdeen, MD on October 25th . . . details coming this evening. While its about a 4 hour trip, its the closest we have coming until 2016. New England lacked the interest to support it but we are looking at options as the new year unfolds
