Looks like we're going to have to be patient, guys. No response yet. I think they won't be in for the month.

I think we do, but here's the problem:

1. I do not know if the 5 riders need to register for the same class
2. I do not know if the 5 riders can register for different classes
3. I do not know if PRS still offers a group discount and if so, how much

Let's wait to hear back from PRS and we'll go from there. Thanks!

just got a call from them.

4+ is eligible for a discount of $50 per person.

each instructor = maximum of 5 students.

so...either 4/5 of us pick the same times, and split the groups.

looks like theres enough for AM and PM so maybe some 1 fix the groups up lol

they plan the first courses to be offered on Feb.14 or the week after.

Hey guys....would like to be included on the list as well. I work weekdays so either the Weekend or Nightschool B schedule is okay with me. Planning to take the course in March for now.

Haven't taken the written test yet but will soon...

I'm on the mailing list already, jmwu99@gmail.com

Thanks!

Yea. I thought we'd at least get 10% off. But whatever, $50 is better than nothing.

Do classes START at Feb 14 (or week after) or there's available class that week?

Btw, there's an email I got regarding this whole group sign-up thing. It seems like we're missing some people o.O

so

the pdf posted was for 2010 schedule, lets wait , about a week or so, when they post up the 2011 schedule.

Vanessa said they will know for sure after the Tradex show on where they stand on starting the schooling for us.

in the mean time, anybody interested just copy/paste yourself to the list.

more then likely in the future we would seperate the pms to group a/b weekend or what not, weve got a month to discuss.

Trust me, you guys are in good hands. If they could teach my wife to ride, they can teach anybody. She had to take almost 2 months of private lessons, lol
