Refuse To Be A Victim ®
July 23, 2016 - 9:30 AM - 3:00 PM
The popular course for self-awareness, Refuse to Be A Victim, will be offered at the Yankee Point Racing and Cruising Club clubhouse on July 23, 2016. This is NOT a gun course but a course centered on situational awareness, everything from your stops at red lights to how you work on your e-mail and everything in between, including the type of locks you use in your home.
The course will be taught by Bob Heller, President of the Rappahannock Pistol and Rifle Club and a professional trainer before retiring. There is a cost to attend the class ($15 per couple, or $15 for individual attendees) and a minimum class size of fifteen (15). There will be handouts in the class which each couple or persons attending individually, will receive with their $15 course fee. Course materials are specifically ordered for each class so those desiring to attend are required to register with Ethel Gibbs at 1067 Levelgreen Road, Lancaster, VA 22503 prior to July 19, 2016 with the $15 course fee. Late registrants will be allowed to attend if they pay the $15 course fee – class materials will be provided at a later date. This course is being offered at YPRCC at a reduced rate since there is no cost to rent a facility. Bring your lunch as videos are shown during the lunch break.
Refuse To Be a Victim® Seminars teach methods to avoid dangerous situations and prevent criminal confrontations. Experts agree the most important factor in surviving a criminal attack is to have an overall safety strategy before you need it. Seminar topics address personal safety issues as well as home, automobile, telephone, technological, and travel security. Seminar participants are presented with a variety of common‑sense crime prevention and personal safety strategies and devices they may integrate into their daily lives.
Refuse To Be A Victim® was developed by the National Rifle Association in 1993 in response to nationwide requests for crime prevention seminars. Members of the law enforcement community across the country have endorsed the program. The program is appropriate for teenagers and up. With more than two thousand instructors, seminars have been held in 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Trinidad and Tobago. Tens of thousands of men and women have benefited from the program and its life saving message.
YPRCC Members Enjoy a Night on the River
To celebrate the end of a successful spring racing season, and in lieu of the traditional weekly social gathering at the YPRCC clubhouse, members of the Yankee Point Racing and Cruising Club had a raft-up at Sandy Beach on the Eastern Branch of the Corrotoman River last Wednesday evening. 30 club members and their guests met on the water to enjoy a pot luck supper and camaraderie. "The weather cooperated and the sunset was beautiful", said one member. Commodore John Henley called it a great success, adding that ten boats, both sailboats and motor boats participated.
YPRCC Seminars will be held in our Clubhouse at 734 Oak Hill Rd, Lancaster.
