    Hello to NY, NJ, and CT Chapter members.

    Since we are all pretty much precluded from live LGC  events and training, we'd like to have a Zoom Social Hour.  While there is no specific agenda aside from seeing one another face to face, as it were, ideas for specific topics are encouraged.

    We are looking at Saturday evening, August 8th at 7 PM.

    If you are interested, please register and the Zoom link will be emailed directly to you. 

    Note: If you can't register, your membership has lapsed, and you'll need to re-up before you can register!

    For the Zoom uninitiated, a free version is available from You will not need a  paid account to participate. For those on Zoom already, please be sure you are using at least version 5.0 or later. Prior versions are not supported.

    Stay Safe and I look forward to hearing from you!

    IDS is based on years of constantly evolving information about how the body works and what really happens during Dynamic Critical Incidents and has been heavily influenced by the diverse group of instructors that are certified to teach it and the thousands of students who have been through courses all around the world. The program features a variety of specialty drills and training methods that the student will be able to utilize in
    their own practice after the course in order to continue to develop their abilities. This course is two full days of training, teaching, and practice. You are encouraged to bring a notebook and a pen. The course will cover the following topics:

    This is a different year, so we'll be doing a bit of a different event due to the pandemic and risk of all gathering together - but perhaps the largest attendance ever since it's all virtual! 

    In light of past in-person Annual National Meetings, we will be hosting in the virtual realm, similar events as to what happens in classrooms and on the range. There will be classes, round table discussions, a virtual Pub meetup with your favorite beverages and local foods to share, keynote speaker, perhaps a bit of competition, and livestream demonstrations. 

    Those who have attended Bench Doctor and other virtually hosted classes and such so far, will have already had a taste of what's to come, plus there will be more. Most gatherings will be hosted on platforms via Discord and Zoom. 

    In addition, depending on local conditions, your chapter leadership may have a local meet as long as they can do so in a COVID safe manner, and possibly with livestream as well - show off your local ranges! 

    Please register so we have an idea of interest in attendance and can manage the tech end of things for hosting larger groups gathering online. 

    More details will be added, and schedules are TBA along with invitations and all the links for specific sessions during the event, so please sign up here so we can keep you in the know! Links to events will be sent to those registered.

    • Salt Lake City, UT

    We will be meeting on BLM land outside of SLC:

    Follow the Interstate 80 west, past Tooele and get off on exit 62. The sign says military area lakeside. Turn right and you'll see a sign with an arrow that points to the area where we can shoot. That is where we will meet. It might be hot so wear hats and sunscreen. Make sure to bring water and pack a lunch or snacks if you don't eat before you go. If you have any questions call or text Chris Jackson at 385-274-8559.

    This is an outdoors venue and social distancing and face masks are expected to help with the prevention of COVID-19.
