Yeah! That makes sense. That was the original plan. The place I had picked out looked small-ish and laid back. Didn't see a lot about competition or shows, but my mother was like hey this other place looks nice and I agreed and just went with them. They seemed so much more professional and organized and i figured the covered arena would be nice for rain. I only have one day I can attend per week, so if the weather is bad it sets me back a week. $37 per lesson for private. I forgot to ask if it'll be group or private. Upon calling and scheduling, theyre literally right next to the other place. It's the lady's daughter teaching me. She's only been teaching 2 years, so at least she won't be burnt out. I kind of expect some snobby folks, but I hope that'll be minimal. Its such a turn off. Folks are the same or worse in the scuba community--professional or pleasure--doesn't matter. Elitists are so unpleasant.
