Several recent threads had some discussion about venturing training, so I thought I'd create a topic where folks can report on training events near them. I'm impressed with what our area VOA is putting together as it has something for every one. The location is convenient to folks in Ohio and Northern WV. If I can figure out how to attach the flyer, I will. Meanwhile if your interested personal message me and I'll send it to you.
