I use a PowerPoint presentation for the seminar. Will there be a screen available? Also, do you want me to post this seminar on the TexasCHLforum Event Calendar?

What and where is PSC?



Charles L. Cotton wrote:I teach a Deadly Force & Its Aftermath seminar a few times a year. I did it at last year's TexasCHLforum Day at PSC and it is on the schedule again for this year's event. However, I am considering doing something different to open up the PSC Blue Building for another seminar and I would like to get input from you folks.

The seminar was well attended last year and I suspect many people will not attend again this year. Other than the legislative update for the 2007 Texas Legislative Session, most of the presentation will be the same as you saw last year.

So, I'm considering not doing that seminar at the 2007 TexasCHLforum Day at PSC, but making it available at other times. I'm going to schedule a Deadly Force Seminar at PSC on a Friday evening in August. I may also offer it on Friday evening, Sept. 28th, the day before the 2007 TexasCHLforum Day at PSC. This would be done in conjunction with the sign-in for that event.

To gauge interest and to help in scheduling the 2007 TexasCHLforum Day at PSC seminars, I would appreciate it if you would vote in the attached poll, if you would like to attend either for the first time, or as a repeat offender.

Charles - I am familiar with the setup at the church. I can supply the screen and digital projector.

That is fine with me.
August 17 works for me too. :grin:

Aug 17th works for me. My son will also probably attend also if there is no problem with his age...he's 17.

He will also be charged with keeping me awake on the drive home, assuming this will be an evening class.

I work for a huge hospital in Downtown Dallas. Would you like me to see of our Police Department can provide an auditorium or presentation hall?

Others have said it, but I just want to reemphasize the value of this lecture. I've been fortunate enough to twice hear Charles present it...and that was before the latest legislative session ended.

You can't ask for a better speaker, and you absolutely positively need to attend this presentation.

Just so folks know. EVERYONE IS INVITED to this seminar. There is NO CHARGE for this seminar - HOWEVER we WILL be taking a "free will" offering. We want to reimburse Mr. Cotton for his expenses. If you could post if you are coming and how many I would like to have an approximate head count.
Here are the directions to the Church:

183E from Dallas. Take the MacArthur exit and turn left (South) about a mile or so you come to Pioneer Dr. There will be a 7-11 on your left and a Fina station on your right. Turn right on Pioneer and we are a half a mile on the right.
