Very cool. I think I will be missing one of those days but I don't know if it will Sat or Sun that I will have to be in Visalia for a L4 meet.

I'd like very much to hear from DJ.

Greg also has a seminar coming up with Dave Whitley that I really wish I could attend.

Jay,
Let's talk more on that after this one is completed. There is definite possibility of that happening (although some of the speakers may change, availability is always a tough thing to manage).

Looks like good stuff with interesting presenters.

I tried to get Jack Reape as well, but he was busy that weekend. He's down for the next one though.

There should be more of these types of seminars to come...so many people out there with good trench knowledge & experience, it would be a shame if they kept it all to themselves.

totally understandable....

either that or videotape the entire weekend and sell DVD's of it after the fact. To be honest, I'd buy a copy of that. With a lineup like that and the information that I am sure will be presented, it ought to be a great educational weekend.

With some quality filming, that would be awesome. It would definitely appeal to East-coasters who may not see such a seminar over here for awhile.

I'd also buy a copy of the DVD. I don't care if its raw footage or produced to some extent.

Did you set this up, Garrett?

Anton Emery
01-22-2010, 09:34 AM
Ditto on the DVD, that would be killer.

Filming will be done, yes.

Presenter bios (in case you were wondering) have now been added (http://www.performancemenu.com/zen/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=30_38&products_id=333&zenid=47ffb933c592570a04c783cb768a5685).

Filming will be done, yes.awesome, I hope the entire thing is filmed.

This will be like the Black Box Summit (which I hope to go to soon) but a bit different obviously.

I can't wait to read about it and watch it on video.

Good work putting this together, this is a great learning resource, I only wish I could go...

dvd would be of interest.

Given that it's unlikely that you'll pack the show on the road and fly out to Australia anytime soon put me down for a copy of the DVDs

Jay Ashman

looks like this would be a hot selling DVD package.

get it done! :)

Other info:

Fly into San Jose Airport, it is closest to the gym by far.

A nearby Country Inn has offered us a room discount, $59 instead of the usual $109. To get it, go through this link
www.countryinns.com/catalystathletics or call them from the number on that linked page, make sure to mention "Catalyst Athletics seminar" and March 13-14.

felt bad for unbumping.

DVD would be cool. I would buy one...

No one comes to the midwest. I think it is because it is really cold in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. Which begs the question "Why am I here AND Why did I move back (from CA)?"

Mike Kerce

DVD! DVD! DVD!

you folks at CA get the best of everything. luckies.

Garrett Smith

I will do my best with the DVD, I'm hoping to get two cameras for recording.

I'm open to arranging this seminar (or something like it) at other locations. How available these particular presenters are to that option, we'll have to see.

Don Stevenson
02-16-2010, 06:59 PM
Once again i'm going to add a request for DVDs.

Garrett Smith
02-16-2010, 07:37 PM
I have my all-weekend camera operator coming to the seminar with me. Should be no problem, Don!

Don Stevenson
02-16-2010, 08:49 PM
Excellent!

If i was anywhere in the US i'd be there for sure but i'm in the strength and conditioning desert known as Australia and anytime i want to go to a cool seminar i've just about got to organise it myself.

When you get the DVDs done I'd be interested in selling them out here too.

Garrett Smith
02-17-2010, 04:04 AM
Don,
I can't remember who/where it was, but there was someone else from Australia mentioning their interest in a/the seminar. I don't know what flights cost, but I'll talk to the other guys about it, see if they're interested.

Don Stevenson
02-17-2010, 04:29 PM
Just call it a big tax deductible holiday.

If there is any chance of getting you guys out here just let me know and I can organise a venue etc and do some promotion out here.

I've got access to a good gym with 11 platforms, bumpers and a huge gymnastic area next door all with the added bonus of not being a CF facility!

Currently trying to lure Rip down under for a seminar and interest in that is pretty strong so i think you'd get a pretty good showing.

If you want to discuss it further just PM me or email me

Garrett Smith
02-18-2010, 05:52 AM
Will do.

How did it go?

Garrett Smith
03-17-2010, 06:38 AM
I thought it went great, but then again, I picked presenters I wanted to see. Would have been hard for me to be disappointed. Everyone I talked to felt they got something out of the weekend.

Anyone else, feel free to comment, we would appreciate the feedback. Or feel free to PM me.

Gant Grimes

I thought it was excellent.
