Dubuque Chapter Izaak Walton
Catfish Creek Concealed Carry Courses (FiveC)
This is an excellent opportunity to test your gear, learn new skills,
and KILL ZOMBIES!
Join us on Friday night, July 17, at Izaak Walton Dubuque Chapter & hang-out all weekend (July 17-19). The plan is that you would LIVE from your Bug-Out Bag. With whatever equipment & provisions you carry-in, build a shelter, and make your meals.
Our main feature is to meet the good folks at ZASC (Zombie Apocalypse Survival Camp). These seasoned outdoorsmen pack a wealth of survival skills and knowledge into the quaint concept of the zombie apocalype. In reality, their skilled instructors bring years of hands-on experience in the skills you need for a genuine bug-out, yet these same skills translate into day to day life as well, and most certainly will improve your future camping experience.
You'll learn and practice building fire with sticks or sparks, constructing shelters from minimal materials, recognizing edible & medicinal plants, and that's just for starters, (we'll provide firewood, so no need to pack that in).
We'll also spend time around the communal fire in the evenings, where we can share stories & sample foods. Feel free to bring your own favorite recipes to share as well.
Our days will include some free-time, for enjoying your personal camp-site and visiting others. We'll take time to show-off B.O.B set-ups, and show-off your B.O.V. (Bug-Out-Vehicle) if you want.
There will also be multiple workshops to attend at your leisure. Among those will be fire-starting skills, water purification, signal concepts, B.O.B. building, defensive skills (with and without guns), and much more!
There will be a reasonable fee of $50 for all this, to cover various costs, instructor travel, & insurance. Look for more info soon, as we finalize the details.
To top-off the fun and punctuate the end of the weekend Izaak Walton is hosting a Zombie Cull on Sunday!! The cull is optional, as we understand that some folks may be traveling a long way & need to leave too early on Sunday to participate, so cost of the Cull ($15, or $10 for Ike's members) will NOT be included in the weekend camp registration.
MARK YOUR calendars, and we'll look forward to spending some quality time together!
