Jeremy Van Keuren, our PBEM NET Coordinator, says:
I have seven open rescuer slots for the afternoon shift at Scenario Village this Saturday (from 1:00 to 4:00); you'd be doing operations with Sabin NET. Any takers? My preference is that one team supply between five and seven volunteers to run through the exercise with 'em.
If interested, please email him at and CC me at I won't be able to attend as I'll be in the NET Train the Trainer class all weekend, so I can help teach some units in the NET class in April/May.

Want to get NET trained? It's FREE!

The next Basic NET class offered by PBEM is 04/29, 05/06, and 05/13. This class will have around 400 - 500 seats in it total - we're taking over Benson High School, which is in the Lloyd District. If you signed up but haven't yet gotten a confirmation that you're in the class, email NET Coordinator Jeremy Van Keuren at and CC me at and I'll make sure you get in.
