@Sara Myers i wasn’t able to see on the web site what was included in the registration fee (hotel, meals, etc). That might be helpful for people to know so they can budget appropriately.

So, that's Tracy Nunnally's thing through Vertigo Flying- formerly Hall Associates Flying FX....y'know: Delbert Hall's original gig? Anyway, it's legit and I wouldn't call this spam or a commercial.
Considering the time and effort we put into telling people to "Hire the pros" for this sort of thing, I think it's cool that they went through the trouble to put the word out on this training.

Hell, as soon as I can get away from my gig for a week, I'm going. It ain't cheap, but stuff like this probably shouldn't be.

I worked with Hall just before the transition to Vertigo, and I just worked with Vertigo this year on a show. If this wasn't in May I would 100% be trying to go. When we brought then in, our flight director took tons of time to work with me to understand every part of they system. She even taught me the hands on of how to build a cable with some of the spare so that I wouldn't just have 'academic' knowledge but also hands on. I still know enough to know that I don't know enough, but it sounds like this training would definitely get me closer.

As a high school affiliated performing arts center manager, this is exactly the kind of training we need in order to be able to tell our renters what is acceptable, and what is not.

Early bird discount is only available until Feb 2nd.
