That is a great idea. I'll mention it to him.
There are no ASA schools nearby, I've looked. I got my ASA teachers qualification this spring and haven't been able to use it.
Might have to start my own school.
Brewer's is the 900 lb gorilla here and they don't do ASA.

Not stopping the trip for a broken finger though. That's hard core.
