Do You Live with Fire? Do You Choose to Lead, Not Follow? Are Honor, Integrity, Courage & Commitment just words to you? Do You Choose to Live Your Dream?

This team is meant to appeal to those who like to “Go Hard or Go Home.” We will focus on gaining leadership and teamwork skills through adventurous and fun activities with the purpose of using those skills to help others. All members should also be willing to teach and learn from each other.

Activities will include: Ropes & Adventure Course (Beginning May 2014); CPR & First Aid Training; Survival Training; Airsoft; Gamer Night; Spec Ops Lasertag; Archery & Archery Tag; Improving your observation, memory & deduction skills; Paintball; Study for CERT and PI exams and testing; Shooting Range and Tactical Training; Self-Defense; etc.

You may wonder why there is a place for gamers in this group. While I am a gamer and do enjoy playing from time to time (or more); it is one of my goals to gain better skills, to assemble and play with a great team in a few of my favorite games. Also, it is known that gamers are said to make quicker decisions, know how to lead a team, etc. This will further enable us to enhance our skills in game and in life. And not to mention, it's fun!

All activities will depend on availability of group members and instructors. If anyone is or knows an instructor who would be willing to teach us or if you have other skills that you believe are in our realm of study please contact me as I would love to hear from you. If you do not share any of my interests, at the very least, I hope this inspires you to go after your dreams.

With Love & Fire,

T.R. Ruiz

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
