Back to Basics: To-go bags, skills assessment and more

Just a reminder that our next meeting will be this Tuesday and the topics will be threefold: 

1. Getting Back to Basics: To-Go Bags

2. Skills assessment survey. 

3. Mike will bring copies of the criminal code and talk about how to transport a firearm. 


Steve will be talking us through a discussion about the necessary items everyone needs in his/or her to-go (bug out) bag.  He will walk us through the required items for us to have in order to live for 3 days away from home.  We will also have a discussoion about what additional items should be in to-go bags for children, the eldery and even for your pets.  Please feel free to bring your to-go bag with you to share any unique items with the group.  


A skills assessment will be handed out at the meeting.   You may fill it out and keep as a guide to highlight those areas which you or your team can still improve upon.  If you would like to fill it out ahead of time, please email me you email address and I will forward you the file.  You may then bring your completed assessment to this meeting (or email it back to me) where we will summarize the skill set of this group. 

Just a reminder, please note the change in location for this month's meeting.  We will be at:

Living Waters Assembly of God Church

525 N. Atkinson Road
Grayslake, IL  60030[masked]&conf=1&start=1&lat=[masked]&lon=[masked]&zoom=13&mvt=m&trf=0&tt=

Doors open at 6:00 and the meeting runs from 6:30 until 8:30.   Feel free to bring as many friends as you'd like as we will not be constrained by the room size for this meeting. 


Thank you all for your continued participation in this important effort and Mike, Steve and I look forward to seeing you all again soon.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
