The Fines Creek Community Association (FCCA) will host a land navigation class at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, indoors at the Fines Creek Community Center.
David Grasty, owner of WNC Bushcraft and Survival, instructor with Piked Antler Project Survival School, and a 20 year USAF Combat Veteran, will be teaching the skills of basic, easy to remember land navigation concepts which can aid in not getting lost. Or, if one does, then to handle their own self rescue.
The class is ideal for hikers, hunters, nature photographers, wilderness med and SAR techs. Cost is $20/person.
Attendees should bring a notepad. There will be approximately 1.5 – 2 hours of instruction.
Call 828-400-5790 to reserve a spot. There is a maximum of 12 per class.
One hundred percent of the space rental donations go to FCCA to support community needs, scholarships and the Manna Foodbank.
The Fines Creek Community Center is at 190 Fines Creek Rd., Clyde in the old Fines Creek Schoolhouse.
