Front Sight Students Request Return To Silent Bids For First
Dear Students and Friends of Front Sight,
We recently conducted personal surveys of our students to find
out how we could better serve their needs as we continue to
develop and implement all of Front Sight's fabulous programs.
Many of them had taken their first course in last few months and
were sorry they had not taken advantage of previous offerings.
We received an overwhelming number of requests (and in some cases
demands) to bring back the Silent Bid for First Family Memberships.
So due to your relentless requests for the opportunity to name
your price for a First Family Membership I have agreed to provide
(5) FIVE, Copper First Family Memberships to the highest bids!
As you may know a Copper First Family Membership sells for
$11,250 financed over 72 months at $199 per month or one payment
of $7000. Prices are going to rise steeply in 2003 to reflect
the additional improvements of our facilities and recent
course price increases.
So now you can name the price you want to pay for a Copper First
Family membership with one payment today. If yours is one of the
5 highest bids, you get it! Name Your Price!
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
We will also hold a drawing for the top 40 bids to award a
certificate good for any course at Front Sight.
So again, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by
sending in a bid to name your price on a Copper First Family

Maddog50 Any idea if he's going to do some Bronze memberships too? I'd be more interested in one of them. The copper is a little limited in the courses you can take.
I haven't heard of any Bronze memberships being auctioned yet.
But Copper is not bad. Figure that you can take the three basic courses with two different types or configurations of handguns, shotguns, rifles the first time around. By the time you take those six classes, you'll probably want a refresher.
Plus you get certificates, so you can train with your buddies.
Thats true. Although I'd rather get a lot better with my primary weapons by taking the more advanced courses than to get a reasonably good with a bunch of different ones. I guess it also depends on how cheap they go. I emailed Naish and he basically said Copper was it because thats what the surveys said everyone wanted. I guess its better than nothing and I can get certs. pretty cheap for the other courses I want to take. Thanks
