    Sorry, I've had a lot going on the last few weeks & forgot the cost & student cap info-

    $200 if you register before July 15 & $225 if you register after July 15
    Attendance is capped at 75 students to make sure we can give everyone a quality experience.

    The sooner you register, the better. We won't be running payment until we have enough people to make the conference a go, but we need to have some numbers before we have the instructors start buying plane tickets, etc. That cost adds up fast.

    Looks like a really good lineup of instructors and a balanced assortment of topics. I've been to a couple of 'buffet' type training events and have found them an excellent return for the money and time invested. I'd say the growing number of this type of training venue being made available bears out the value returned to the student by using this format.

    Hope y'all book solid... wish I could get there.

    Unfortunately we have to cancel the conference due to lack of registrations. If you sent in a registration form please contact Steve Materkowski at [email protected] & he will make sure your payment info is returned or destroyed.

    We are going to try again for next year, taking into account the lessons learned from this experience.

    If you have any questions please let me know.

    Excellent group of instructors!

    One nice thing about retirement in the next two to eight (or so) years will be that I can plan to attend such events without having to arrange my single annual leave request around it, or just get lucky and find the leave request book is not already full on the date I want.

    The last time I attended an event with a similar mix of instructor talent was the Snubby Summit in 2005.

    Seriously, do not delay getting this kind of training! Had I not attended the Snubby Summit in 2005, I would never have met, and learned from, in person, the great Jim Cirillo, before his untimely passing.

    I also learned VERY important skills from Michael deBethancourt, which might save my life any day. He will teach you to MAXIMIZE the snubby, but also impart survival skills applicable to any gunfight.

    SouthNarc, my friend, and long-distance mentor, is a treasure. I had attended the full two-day ECQC before the Snubby Summit, so I passed on his mini-ECQC to attend a different class at the Summit. He teaches simple, brutal, effective stuff.

    These are the two gentlemen, listed for this event, from whom I have learned on a hands-on basis.


    An experience like this can change your life.

    Wow, I completely missed this before and you're a little ways for regular classes, but for something like this I'd have been interested. Any chance of a mailing list for earlier notice to plan ahead for events like this?
