I don't know who Fred is, but Peter Den Haan is a spots on kind of tech instructor and he's a NAUI regional rep. so he probably teached the NAUI Tech classes. Andrew (Georgetsis?), Kane (MHK?), and Jablonski (JJ?) are all very good GUE instructors, I have heard nothing but good things from those who have taken their classes, but I don't think Jablonski teaches out here. Someone once mentioned that a GLNSD was a good technical instructor too, but I don't know who he is or who he teaches for. Perhaps you or someone else out there know of him?
You provided a very reasonably accurate assessment of the state of technical training on this coast. I would also rather send someone to be trained by someone who parrots the best in the sport, rather than to someone who thinks he can promote the self treating of one's self for
DCI. Those kind of guys are what's wrong in technical training.
