"What is zombie apocalypse preparedness?" you ask. Why, it's disaster preparedness, capped off with a trip to the rifle range and booze, of course! --- Here's what I thought might each be a fun Sunday afternoon/evening:

Ideas

Course Work

  • Another round of First Aid and CPR certification
  • A talk by local amateur radio ARES/RACES operators
  • A talk on brewing and distillation of alcohol (we probably oughtn't run a still in the space, however...)
  • Distillation of water for purification?
  • Electricity generation
  • Tinkering: fabricating unavailable yet critical tools or devices out of items you might find in a common house or office
  • chainsaw maintenance
  • salvage and safe use of common demolition/mining explosives
  • defensive driving
  • archery/fencing/other-running-out-of-ammo-disaster-skills
  • reloading, nothing like making your own ammo
  • methane gas production
  • hand printing, copying, and cipher methods
  • semaphore signaling
  • scripture cheatsheet for whipping up/controlling dirty masses of post apoc. fundies

Field Trips

  • A trip to a rifle range (ie: not just small-bore handguns)
  • A trip to a batting cage

Planning

Workshops

Brewing Workshop

Field Trips

Rifle Range

Shannon volunteers to do the calling around to find out about hours, group rates &c at local rifle ranges.

Batting Cage

Shannon volunteers to do the calling around to find out about hours, group rates &c at local batting cages.


Interested Parties

Put your name down if you are interested in attending any or all of these. We can get more specific on each event later.
