Every ATA Region strives to do their best. What separates Region 114 from the pack is we are not afraid to learn from each other regardless of rank. Failure to plan is often planning to fail. This workshop is being offered to school / club owners who have registered for the weekend camp. Instructors must register for this workshop by checking line one of the camp registration form. This workshop will be held at Ingham Okoboji Lutheran Bible Camp and is starting at Noon on Friday to allow drive time.
