Re: MG classes

Thanks for the compliment.  No, I don't think they'd let me go; they know a
yes-person when they see one.  Would you do this, Would you make these, Will
you work x, Could you pick up those?  Usually yes, though sometimes no.

The recertification I mentioned is mainly aimed at people who took the class
20 years ago, volunteered for a few years and then drifted off, but still
call themselves a MG.  Until this new shake-up, all the counties had
differing requirements.  This is just being done to realign everything.
Currently in Allen Co. we are required to do 26 hours (20 V, 6 E), more than
the 12 V the state requires.  Since we don't have meetings like you do,
speakers are scheduled on Garden Festival days, during which I'm usually
working.  It's not really a problem.  I just remembered that I had another E
hour when I attended a Lunch Seminar on new annuals when I had a day off
work.  So now I'm just 1hr short and I'm sure I can find a way to fill it.
