dude, we're friends, but man up on this. if it's the rule that streamers are needed, get a streamer or don't ride.

Would any of these instructors be willing to spend a few hours certifying people at Montrose or Waukeegan prior to the season opening? Maybe offer what I have seen some do and charge each candidate $15 to essentially watch them kite and give them a cert. so that they can apply to PASA and get the card. The instructors could make some extra $ for essentially doing nothing other than either approving or denying people and hopefully this could help to alleviate the problem of people riding without streamers.

Funny people can come up with money for gear but no money for a certification? What are we going to do when they require a registration and insurance it is coming soon? BTW certification should require safety demonstration by the kiter being certified including a simple pack down if you are unable to relaunch. Pass me another brew would ya?

I was not in any way trying to attack anyone. If you read my original email, I simply asked if any of the local instructors that are certified would be interested in making some cash and doing certs for a reasonable price. Which again is consistent with other areas in the country. If you are not interested, no need to respond.

As for the post above my guess why people don't show for a bulk certification is that they aren't confident in there skills around others, maybe a bit embarrassed to show others? This could be the reason they will contact you one at a time on a more personal level ? Either way when I am ready for both spots north and south I will hit you up for sure... Polo.
